What is a Beetle?
     Lev 11:21-22. Beetles have not "legs above their feet to leap withal upon the earth," neither are they ever eaten by man. From the connection, the word probably indicates an insect of the Locust family, which see. The Egyptians worshipped the beetle (scarabus) as a symbol of fertility and immortality.
