BLAINS. See DISEASE, DISEASES.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Pustules containing fluid around a boil or inflamed sore. It is an Old English word "bleyen," used sometimes as a synonym for boil. Wyclif (1382) uses the expression "stinkende bleyne" for Job’s sores. The Hebrew word is from a root which means that which bubbles up.

See Boil.
