Foam occurs as a translation of קֶצֶŠ (Ke'tseph, something broken): in Ho 10:7, "As for Samaria, her king is cut off as the foam upon the water," after the Vulg. spuma. The Sept. doubtless gives the correct sense, φρύγανον, a dry twig or splinter. Horsley (Comment. in loc.) renders "bubble." "Foam" is the true meaning of ἀφρός, froth (Lu 9:39; with its derivatives in Mr 9:18,20; Jude 1:13).
