חַשְׁמַל H2830 "amber",

חשׁמל, betekenis onzeker "hars, amber, barnsteen, electrum"; in modern Ivriet "elektriciteit"; I once heard it being said that 'electricity', coming from the Greek word 'electron' for 'amber', is actually a biblical term. Phoenician hawkers sitting by Greek temples and selling this aromatic substance advertised their wares by shouting out at the worshipers: לאל-קטר, לאל-קטר LA-EL-QATER, LA-EL-QATER, 'offer incense to the gods', 'offer incense to the gods', giving this substance its name.
