Default Puzzle #5

A number of trees are mentioned in the Bible - Olive, Acacia, Shittim, and Almond, just to mention a few.

The challenge for this puzzle is to identify a biblical tree whose name is 9 letters long (singular). It is mentioned at least once in the book of Isaiah.

Send your guess to iap.puzzles@gmail.com and be sure to put Puzzle #5 in the subject field and include your user name in the text.

A correct answer will earn you 1 point. As always, just one entry per person. This contest will close at noon CST on Friday, Feb 15.

Banter is encouraged, but please, no answers or strong hints.

So is it 9 letters in Ancient Hebrew language? Hopefully Google translate can help!
