갈대
갈대(reed, rush) 습지나 물가에서 자라며, 그 키가 2–3m 정도로 성장하는 포아풀과의 다년생 풀. 줄기는 속이 비었고 마디로 연결되어 있으며 곧고 단단하다. 잎의 길이는 20–50cm이다. 이처럼 갈대는 곧고 길어서 고대 세계에서 ‘측량자’로도 사용되었다(사 42:3; 계 11:1; 21:15). 그러나 바람에 쉽게 꺾이고 넘어지는 특성이 있어 무기력하고 허약한 상태(사 42:3), 쉽게 변절하는 존재를 상징하기도 했다(왕하 18:21; 마 11:7). 몇 가지 원어가 있으나 대표적인 것을 살펴보면 다음과 같다.갈대

갈대(reed) 습지나 물가에 저절로 자라며 키는 2–3m 정도로 성장하는 포아풀과(벼, 보리가 여기에 속함)의 다년생 풀을 말한다. 줄기는 속이 비었고 마디로 연결되어 있으며 곧고 단단하다. 잎의 길이는 20–50cm이다. 이처럼 갈대는 길고 줄기가 곧아 고대 사람들은 이를 측량자로 사용하기도 했다(사 42:3; 계 11:1; 21:15). 갈대를 측량자로 이용한 ‘갈대 자’는 그 길이가 대략 6규빗(약 2.74m)에 해당한다(겔 40:3; 계 21:15). 이와는 대조적으로 갈대는 바람에 쉽게 꺾이고 넘어지는 특성이 있어 ‘힘없고
(pen) 성경에는 세 개의 원어가 사용된다. ① 헬라어 ‘칼라모스’(κάλαμος) – ‘갈대’란 의미다. 고대에 갈대 줄기를 펜으로 사용한 데서 유래된 표현이다. 주로 파피루스나 양피지에 사용하였다. 사도 요한이 사용한 붓 역시 갈대 붓이었다(요삼 1:13). ② 히브리어 ‘에트’(עֶט) – ‘뾰족한 것’이란 뜻이다. 이 붓은 철필(鐵筆)로 추정되는데, 바위나 금속(납)에 글을 새길 때 사용되었다(욥 19:24; 렘 17:1). 때로 갈대 펜을 가리키는 것으로 보기도 한다(렘 8:8). ③ 히브리어 ‘세레드’(שֶׂרֶד‎)
