SPECKLED (Heb. nāqōdh, mottled in color). A word used to denote varied colors of beasts. The most familiar example of its use is in Gen.30.25-Gen.30.43 where Jacob applied his knowledge of selective breeding of livestock in order to collect from Laban what he considered a fair wage. However, God revealed to him in a dream that it was not his doings, but God’s, that effected the selective breeding (Gen.31.10-Gen.31.12).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

spek’-l’-d: Zec 1:8; the Revised Version (British and American) "sorrel."

See Colors; Hyena.
