GAME (צַ֫יִד, H7473, צִידוֹן, H7477, KJV, VENISON). The Heb. term refers to game of any kind, although properly venison is the flesh of the deer. Game hunting was not a popular Heb. pastime, but was carried out mostly for reasons of hunger or the depredations of wild animals. However, men such as Ishmael (Gen 21:20) and Esau (Gen 25:27), were renowned for their hunting skills. Game consisted chiefly of partridge, gazelle, and hart meat (Deut 12:15), along with roebucks in the time of Solomon.
