Cheese - (A.S. cese). This word occurs three times in the Authorized Version as the translation of three different Hebrew words:
(1.) 1 Sam. 17:18, "ten cheeses;" i.e., ten sections of curd.
(2.) 2 Sam. 17:29, "cheese of kine" = perhaps curdled milk of kine. The Vulgate version reads "fat calves."
(3.) Job 10:10, curdled milk is meant by the word.
