Gravel (חָצִוֹ, chatsats', something broken off small; gravel-stone, Pr 20:17; La 3:16. In Psalm lxxvii. 7, חֲצָצֶיַךָ, "thine arrows," is regarded by Fulrst as a reduplicative form from הֵוֹ; in Isa 48:19, מ וֹתָיו, erroneously "the gravel thereof," is undoubtedly the same as in מֵ יךָ preceding, and stands elliptically for "[the issue of] its bowels," sc. the sea's, i.e., the fish that spawn so numerously), comminuted rock, coarser than sand, but smaller than stones, forming a large part of what is known geologically as "drift" or diluvium over the surface of the earth. SEE LAND.
