Summer

SUMMER (קַ֫יִץ, H7811, pluck or gather, i.e. hậrvest). The same word is used for both the season and its produce. In Pal., the months between May and Oct. are essentially rainless, so that summer is a season of drought (Ps 32:4), of oppressive heat, but also of field work (Prov 10:5; Jer 8:20). The main business of the season is the harvest, first that of the early crops, the first-ripe (cf. Isa 28:4 where KJV has “hasty fruit”), then the main crop. If the harvest is delayed, the produce will become overripe and spoil, as in the vision of summer fruit (Amos 8:1, 2).
