Male (Heb. זָכָר, zakar', Ge 1:27; Ge 6:19; Ge 34:25), applied to the male of either man or beasts. The superior estimation in which male children were held among the Hebrews is testified by numerous passages of Scripture, and we find the same feeling, expressed almost in the same words, still existing in Eastern countries (see Job 3:3; and comp. Roberts, Observ. ad loc.). SEE CHILD.
