בָּשָׂר Strong’s #1320 basar

Within yet three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.

Genesis 40:19


The word basar literally means “meat” such as in Exodus 12:8, but can also mean the whole of a person or animal such as in Genesis 6:13. A closely related word, besorah (Strongs #1309), the feminine form of basar, means “good news” or “gospel.” In the Ancient Hebrew culture, a fatted animal is slaughtered for a feast at times of “good news;” hence, the connection between basar and besorah.
