Cedars in the Bible
The cedar is mentioned frequently in the Bible. An example is:
Numbers 24.5-6: "How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabenacles, O Israel! As the valleys they are spread forth, as gardens by the river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters."
