(n. pl.) Quadrupeds of the Bovine family; sometimes, also, including all domestic quadrupeds, as sheep, goats, horses, mules, asses, and swine.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Cattle
CATTLE . The word commonly used in OT is miqneh , meaning primarily possessions or wealth oxen, camels, sheep, and goats being the only wealth of peoples in a nomadic stage of civilization. It includes sometimes horses and asses, e.g. Exodus 9:3 , Job 1:3 . The word is also sometimes rendered ‘possessions’ ( e.g. Ecclesiastes 2:7 ), ‘flocks’ ( Psalms 78:46 ), and ‘herds’ ( Genesis 47:18 ). For other words rendered in EV [1] ‘cattle,’ see Beast. See also Ox, Sheep, Shepherd, etc.

Oxen are specially valuable in Palestine for ploughing (Deuteronomy 22:19 , 1 Kings 19:19 ) and for threshing, i.e . ‘treading out the corn’ ( Deuteronomy 25:4 , Hosea 10:11 ). They were used for carts ( Numbers 7:3 ); the Circassians, recently settled in Palestine, use them extensively in this way, but not the fellahîn . In 1 Chronicles 12:40 oxen are also mentioned as burden-bearers. Their use for sacrifice is repeatedly referred to (see 1 Kings 8:53 , 2 Chronicles 29:33 ). The cattle of Palestine are small and mostly lean, owing to poor food and much work. They are most plentiful in Galilee, where the pasturage is better; and a much larger breed, the cows of which give excellent milk, flourishes around Damascus. In several parts of the Jordan Valley, notably in el-Batiha , N. of Lake of Tiberias, and near Lake Huleh, the buffalo or jamus ( Bosbubalus ) is kept by the Bedouin; it yields excellent milk.
For the ‘ wild ox ’ (RV [3] tr. [7] of rě’ çm ), see Unicorn.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Cattle
See Animals . English translations use “cattle” for at least thirteen different Hebrew words and six Greek words.
Eleph or aluph refers to tame animals living in a herd. It is variously translated as “herd,” “cattle,” “oxen,” “kine.” It includes animals used in plowing ( Isaiah 30:24 ). See Deuteronomy 7:13 ; Deuteronomy 28:4 ; Proverbs 14:4 .
Behemah is a general term for animals ( Exodus 9:9 ; Isaiah 30:6 ), for four-footed animals (1 Kings 4:33 ), wild animals (Deuteronomy 28:26 ; 1 Samuel 17:44 ), as well as for domestic cattle including both herds of cattle and flocks of sheep and goats (Leviticus 1:2 ) and oxen and donkeys (Deuteronomy 5:14 ). Compare Genesis 47:17-18 ). It includes all animals belonging to a household (Genesis 34:23 ). They were used as riding animals (Nehemiah 2:12-14 ).
Behemah can be cattle distinguished from sheep and goats of the flock (2 Chronicles 32:28 ). They need pasture lands (Joel 1:18 ). Interbreeding among behemah of different kinds was forbidden (Leviticus 19:19 ). Righteous people care for animals (Proverbs 12:10 ). Bitter, faithless people are like dumb, ignorant animals (Psalm 73:22 ).
Beir is a general term including beasts of burden ( Genesis 45:17 ) who graze in a field (Exodus 22:5 ). They are the property of an individual or community (Numbers 20:4 ,Numbers 20:4,20:8 ).
Baqar were important members of an Israelite household ( Genesis 47:1 ), even being included in prayer and fasting by people of Nineveh (Jonah 3:7 ). They are the most important work animals, pulling the plow (1 Samuel 11:5 ; 1 Kings 19:19 ; Job 1:14 ) and the wagon (1 Chronicles 13:9 ). These oxen, especially the young, provided meat for special occasions (Genesis 18:7 ; 1 Kings 1:9 ). The royal palace ate such food daily (1 Kings 4:22 ). The cattle produced milk from which yogurt was made (Deuteronomy 32:14 ) and also cheese (2 Samuel 17:29 NAS). Such cattle could be fattened in the pasture ( 1 Kings 4:23 ) or in stalls (Habakkuk 3:17 ). The high value placed on oxen can be seen in the penalty for stealing one (Exodus 22:1 ). Cattle played a most important role in Israel's sacrifices: burnt offering (Leviticus 1:3 ), peace offering (Leviticus 3:1 ), sin offering (Leviticus 4:3 ). As the most important animals, cattle always head the list of animals for sacrifice.
Mala'kah is a basic Hebrew word for business or work which came to designate the wares or things connected with work and thus is used to refer to cattle in Genesis 33:14 .
Meri' is based on the root meaning, “fat.” It refers to calves fattened for people to eat. David sacrificed these before the ark ( 2 Samuel 6:13 ; compare 1 Kings 1:9 ). Isaiah reminded Israel that such sacrifices were not God's first priority for His people (Isaiah 1:11 ; compare Amos 5:22 ). Some have suggested the animal meant here is a buffalo—bubalus buffalus . These were apparently the best animals for human consumption, making Israel think they would be the most pleasing to God.
Miqneh is the Hebrew word for “possessions” and most frequently refers to herds and flocks ( Genesis 26:14 ) and possibly to a longer list of animals (Genesis 47:17-18 ; Exodus 9:3 ; Job 1:3 ). Certain lands were suitable for raising cattle (Numbers 32:1 ), so that the herdsmen could live in their tents with the animals (2 Chronicles 14:14-15 ).
Egel and eglah are young steers and cows. The golden calves of the wilderness were formed like an egel ( Exodus 32:4 ) as were the calves King Jeroboam placed in Bethel and Dan (1 Kings 12:28 ). An egel was the son of a baqar ( Leviticus 9:2 ). A woman without standing or position could have such a calf fattened and ready to butcher (1 Samuel 28:24 ). Calves graze the land and eat leaves from small bushes or trees (Isaiah 27:10 ). Their frolicking and free spirits make them symbols of unruly, disobedient children (Jeremiah 31:18 ). A calf was cut in two when a covenant agreement was made (Jeremiah 34:18-19 ). Year-old calves were viewed as the best animals for sacrifice (Micah 6:6 ). The cow was used as a yoke animal for plowing (Deuteronomy 21:3 ). The Bible points to the day when the calf and lion can live together in peace (Isaiah 11:7 ).
Par or parah represents a bull or cow which has matured enough to be capable of reproduction ( Job 21:10 ). They are older than an egel or eglah and belong to the collective term baqar . The bulls and cows played an important role in sacrifice to God, since these animals were more valuable than sheep or goats. They were offered as sin offerings for the priests (Leviticus 8:2 ,Leviticus 8:2,8:14-17 ; Numbers 8:12 ) and for the community (Leviticus 4:1 ). The great annual festivals featured sacrifices of bulls (Leviticus 23:1 ; Numbers 28-29 ). The dedication of a worship place also involved offerings of bulls (Numbers 7:1 ). Purification from contact with the dead involves a ritual with a red cow (Numbers 19:1 ) which differs from sacrifice. Other special occasions involved the offering of a bull or cow (Exodus 24:1 ; Numbers 23:1 ; Judges 6:1 ; 1 Samuel 1:24-25 ; 1 Samuel 6:14 ; 1 Kings 18:23-33 ). Criticism of sacrifice done in the wrong attitude speaks of bulls and cows (Psalm 50:5 ; Psalm 69:31 ; Isaiah 1:11 ,Isaiah 1:11,1:15-17 ; Hosea 14:3 —which reads literally, “the steers of our lips”). The strength of the bull made it quite suitable as a symbol for enemies (Psalm 22:12 ). Their fatness led to other symbolism (Amos 4:1 ).
Shor is a collective term for either bull or cow and most often refers to a single animal. These were tame animals able to recognize their owner ( Isaiah 1:3 ; compare Exodus 21:35 ). Their financial value led to special laws concerning them (Exodus 21:33 , Exodus 22:1 ,Exodus 22:1,22:10 ; Deuteronomy 22:1 ). They ate grass from pasturelands (Numbers 22:4 ; Psalm 106:20 ) and made a lowing sound (Job 6:5 ). They could become vicious, using their horns to gore people to death (Exodus 21:28-32 ). They were yoked to the plow but were not to be unequally yoked with a donkey (Deuteronomy 22:10 ). They also were yoked to carts to pull them (Numbers 7:3 ). They were used to stomp on the grain to thresh out the kernels from the husks (Deuteronomy 25:4 ). The shor was old enough to mate (Job 21:10 ). The firstborn had to be sacrificed (Leviticus 22:27-28 ; Numbers 18:17 ; Deuteronomy 15:19 ). Defeat in war brought murder of one's animals (Joshua 6:21 ; 1 Samuel 15:3 ). They were clean animals which God's people could eat (Deuteronomy 14:4 ).
Threma refers to a domesticated animal, usually a sheep or a goat ( John 4:12 ).
Ktenos refers to domesticated animals, often ones used for riding or for pack animals. Revelation 18:13 apparently refers to cattle. The same word may refer to a donkey in Luke 10:34 . Compare Acts 23:24 .
KJV refers to cattle in Luke 17:7 , but the Greek term poimaino refers to the activity of a herdsman leading sheep or goats to pasture. Compare 1 Corinthians 9:7 .
Tauros is a bull or ox used in sacrifices and for banquets. It is the Greek translation of Hebrew shor. See Matthew 22:4 ; Acts 14:13 ; Hebrews 9:13 ; Hebrews 10:4 .
Bous is an ox or cow. Kept in stalls, they had to be led to water even on the Sabbath ( Luke 13:15 ). Compare Luke 14:5 . They were yoked for plowing (Luke 14:19 ). Jesus found people selling them in the Temple for sacrifices (John 2:14 ). It can also translate Hebrew shor ( 1 Corinthians 9:9 ).
Moschos is a young bull or heifer, basically equivalent to Hebrew par or parah . See Luke 15:23 ; Hebrews 9:12 ,Hebrews 9:12,9:19 ; Revelation 4:7 .
Damalis is the Greek equivalent for Hebrew eglah and is used in the New Testament to refer to the red heifer of Numbers 9:2-9 . See Hebrews 9:13 .

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Cattle
Various Hebrew words are used in reference to the cow and the ox as 'cattle.' The word miqneh, however, often used for 'cattle,' signifies 'possession,' because the principal property of nomadic tribes consisted of their cattle: the word includes also sheep and goats, but not horses and asses. Exodus 9:3-21 , etc. Another word, tson , signifies small cattle, that is, sheep and goats. Genesis 30:39-43 ; Genesis 31:8-43 ; Ecclesiastes 2:7 . seh has the same meaning, Genesis 30:32 ; Ezekiel 34:17-22 : in Isaiah 7:25 it is translated 'lesser cattle,' and in Isaiah 43:23 'small cattle.'
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Cattle
Abounded in the Holy Land. To the rearing and management of them the inhabitants chiefly devoted themselves (Deuteronomy 8:13 ; 12:21 ; 1 Samuel 11:5 ; 12:3 ; Psalm 144:14 ; Jeremiah 3:24 ). They may be classified as,
Neat cattle. Many hundreds of these were yearly consumed in sacrifices or used for food. The finest herds were found in Bashan, beyond Jordan (Numbers 32:4 ). Large herds also pastured on the wide fertile plains of Sharon. They were yoked to the plough (1 Kings 19:19 ), and were employed for carrying burdens (1 Chronicles 12:40 ). They were driven with a pointed rod (Judges 3:31 ) or goad (q.v.). According to the Mosaic law, the mouths of cattle employed for the threshing-floor were not to be muzzled, so as to prevent them from eating of the provender over which they trampled (Deuteronomy 25:4 ). Whosoever stole and sold or slaughtered an ox must give five in satisfaction (Exodus 22:1 ); but if it was found alive in the possession of him who stole it, he was required to make double restitution only (22:4). If an ox went astray, whoever found it was required to bring it back to its owner (23:4; Deuteronomy 22:1,4 ). An ox and an ass could not be yoked together in the plough (Deuteronomy 22:10 ).
Small cattle. Next to herds of neat cattle, sheep formed the most important of the possessions of the inhabitants of Palestine (Genesis 12:16 ; 13:5 ; 26:14 ; 21:27 ; 29:2,3 ). They are frequently mentioned among the booty taken in war (Numbers 31:32 ; Joshua 6:21 ; 1 Samuel 14:32 ; 15:3 ). There were many who were owners of large flocks (1 Samuel 25:2 ; 2 Samuel 12:2 , Compare Job 1:3 ). Kings also had shepherds "over their flocks" (1 Chronicles 27:31 ), from which they derived a large portion of their revenue (2 Samuel 17:29 ; 1 Chronicles 12:40 ). The districts most famous for their flocks of sheep were the plain of Sharon (Isaiah 65 :: 10 ), Mount Carmel (Micah 7:14 ), Bashan and Gilead (Micah 7:14 ). In patriarchal times the flocks of sheep were sometimes tended by the daughters of the owners. Thus Rachel, the daughter of Laban, kept her father's sheep (Genesis 29:9 ); as also Zipporah and her six sisters had charge of their father Jethro's flocks (Exodus 2:16 ). Sometimes they were kept by hired shepherds (John 10:12 ), and sometimes by the sons of the family (1 Samuel 16:11 ; 17:15 ). The keepers so familiarized their sheep with their voices that they knew them, and followed them at their call. Sheep, but more especially rams and lambs, were frequently offered in sacrifice. The shearing of sheep was a great festive occasion (1 Samuel 25:4 ; 2 Samuel 13:23 ). They were folded at night, and guarded by their keepers against the attacks of the lion (Micah 5:8 ), the bear (1 Samuel 17:34 ), and the wolf (Matthew 10:16 ; John 10:12 ). They were liable to wander over the wide pastures and go astray (Psalm 119:176 ; Isaiah 53:6 ; Hosea 4:16 ; Matthew 18:12 ). Goats also formed a part of the pastoral wealth of Palestine (Genesis 15:9 ; 32:14 ; 37:31 ). They were used both for sacrifice and for food (Deuteronomy 14:4 ), especially the young males (Genesis 27:9,14,17 ; Judges 6:19 ; 13:15 ; 1 Samuel 16:20 ). Goat's hair was used for making tent cloth (Exodus 26:7 ; 36:14 ), and for mattresses and bedding (1 Samuel 19:13,16 ). (See GOAT .)
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Cattle
Eleph (אֶלֶף, Strong's #504), “cattle; thousand; group.” The first word, “cattle,” signifies the domesticated animal or the herd animal. It has cognates in Aramaic, Akkadian, Ugaritic, and Phoenician. It appears only 8 times in the Bible, first in Deut. 7:13: “He will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine [1], and the flocks of thy sheep.…”This noun is probably related to the verb 'alaph, “to get familiar with, teach, instruct.” This verb occurs 4 times, only in Job and Proverbs.
The related noun 'eleph usually means “familiar; confident.” It, too, occurs only in biblical poetry. In Ps. 144:14, 'alluph signifies a tame domesticated animal: “That our oxen may be strong to labor; that there be no breaking in, nor going out.…”
The second word, “thousand,” occurs about 490 times and in all periods of biblical Hebrew. It first appears in Gen. 20:16: “Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver …”
The third word, “group,” first occurs in Num. 1:16: “These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands [2] in Israel.” It appears to be related to the word 'elluph, “leader of a large group,” which is applied almost exclusively to non-lsraelite tribal leaders (exceptions: Zech. 9:7; 12:5-6). 'Alluph first occurs in Gen. 36:15: “These were [3] of the sons of Esau.…”
King James Dictionary - Cattle
1. Beasts or quadrupeds in general, serving for tillage, or other labor, and for food to man. In its primary sense, the word includes camels, horses, asses, all the varieties of domesticated horned beasts or the bovine genus, sheep of all kinds and goats, and perhaps swine. In this general sense, it is constantly used in the scriptures. See Job 1 . 3 . Hence it would appear that the word properly signifies possessions, goods. But whether from a word originally signifying a beast, for in early ages beasts constituted the chief part of a mans property, or from a root signifying to get or possess. This word is restricted to domestic beasts but in England it includes horses, which it ordinarily does not, in the United States, at least not in New-England. 2. In the United States, cattle, in common usage, signifies only beasts of the bovine genus, oxen, bulls, cows and their young. In the laws respecting domestic beasts, horses, sheep, asses, mules and swine are distinguished from cattle, or neat cattle. Thus the law in Connecticut, requiring that all the owners of any cattle, sheep or swine, shall ear-mark or brand all their cattle, sheep and swine, does not extend to horses. Yet it is probable that a law, giving damages for a trespass committed by cattle breaking into an inclosure, would be adjudged to include horses. In Great Britain, beasts are distinguished into black cattle, including bulls, oxen, cows and their young and small cattle, including sheep of all kinds and goats.
3. In reproach, human beings are called cattle.

Achan's children were not taken to the valley (as some explain) as mere spectators, to take warning from their father's doom; for why then should Achan's Cattle have been taken out along with him?

Plagues of Egypt - ...
The fifth plague of Egypt, rising still in terror, was that of the pestilence and mortality among all the Cattle of the Egyptians; in which, as a continuance of the same discrimination as had been shewn before in the plague of the flies, while all the Cattle of Egypt died, there was not one of the Cattle of the Israelites dead. It is more than probable also, that some among the Cattle that were destroyed were included in the idols of Egypt; for certain it is, that from the Egyptians the Israelites learnt the worship of the calf, which afterwards they set up in the wilderness. (See Exodus 32:1-6) What contempt, therefore, by the destruction of Cattle, was thrown upon the idols of Egypt!...
In the view of the sixth plague of Egypt, "the boils breaking forth with blains upon man and upon beast,"we behold the hand of the Lord falling heavier than ever. We are told that they, among them that feared the word of the Lord, called home their servants and their Cattle to places of shelter before the storm came

Shepherds - Refusing to confine themselves to any particular spot, (for the pastures were not yet appropriated,) they lived in tents, and removed from one place to another in search of pastures for their Cattle. This custom has descended to modern times; for in Syria the daughters of the Turcoman and Arabian shepherds, and in India the Brahmin women of distinction, are seen drawing water at the village wells, and tending their Cattle to the lakes and rivers. " From the present which Jacob made to his brother Esau, consisting of five hundred and eighty head of different sorts, we may form some idea of the countless numbers of great and small Cattle which he had acquired in the service of Laban. In modern times, the numbers of Cattle in the Turcoman flocks, which feed on the fertile plains of Syria, are almost incredible. Shaw, who states, that several Arabian tribes, who can bring no more than three or four hundred horses into the field, are possessed of more than as many thousand camels, and triple the number of sheep and black Cattle

Plagues, the Ten, - --Still coming closer and closer to the Egyptians, God sent a disease upon the Cattle, which were not only their property but their deities. At the precise time of which Moses forewarned Pharaoh, all the Cattle of the Egyptians were smitten with a murrain and died, but not one of the Cattle of the Israelites suffered. ( Exodus 9:1-7 ) ...
The plague of boils --From the Cattle the hand of God was extended to the persons of the Egyptians. The fifth plague, that of murrain, struck at the Cattle-worship for which Egypt was celebrated
Desert - ) The wilderness of Israel's 40 years wanderings (Paran, now the Tih) afforded ample sustenance then for their numerous Cattle; so that the skeptic's objection to the history on this ground is futile

Unicorn - Isaiah 34:7 , who of all the prophets seems to have known Egypt and Ethiopia the best, when prophesying about the destruction of Idumea, says, that the reem shall come down with the fat Cattle: a proof that he knew his habitation was in the neighbourhood. In the same manner as when foretelling the desolation of Egypt, he mentions, as one manner of effecting it, the bringing down the fly from Ethiopia, Isaiah 7:18-19 , to meet the Cattle in the desert and among the bushes, and destroy them there, where that insect did not ordinarily come but on command, Exodus 8:22 , and where the Cattle fled every year, to save themselves from that insect
Jacob - ...
What a down-come it was from the covenant-heights of Bethel to the Cattle-troughs of Haran! What a cruel fall from the company of ascending and descending angels into the clutches of a finished rogue like Laban! Jacob had been all but carried up of angels from Bethel and taken into an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled; but, instead of that, he is taken down to Padan-arain, where he is cheated out of his wages, and cheated out of his wife, and cheated, and cheated, and cheated again, ten times cheated, and that too by his own mother's brother, till cheating came out of Jacob's nostrils, and stank in his eyes, and became hateful as hell to Jacob's heart. It were laughable to a degree, if it were not so sad, to see Jacob, after all his smart, still peeling the stakes of poplar, and chestnut, and hazel where the Cattle came to drink, till it came about that all the feebler births in the Cattle-pens were Laban's and all the stronger were Jacob's. ...

Jacob took a great herd of Laban's whitest Cattle: goats, and camels, and kine, and everything he could think of, and sent herd after herd on beforehand so as to quench the embers of his brother's wrath. But, with all these women and children, and with all these Cattle and other encumbrances, was there ever a man taken in such a cruel trap! But he had still one whole night to count on before Esau could be at the Jabbok
Wilderness (2) - Those people are not addicted to agricultural life, but to the breeding of Cattle; they live on the borders of cultivated lands, between these and other regions which are either uninhabitable or practically uninhabited. The territories held by those nomads—called Bedawîn in modern times—are not without water and grass; but these indispensable resources, required for the herds, are both scarce, and the tribes of shepherds, are compelled to remove their camps from one place to another for feeding and watering their Cattle. Those spaces are generally used as pasture-grounds for the Cattle, and have also been called midbâr. There were, however, spaces of land without human habitations, and probably left to the shepherds and their Cattle

(e) The crops thus sown were exposed, as they grew, to various dangers, such as the inroads of roaming Cattle, the depredations of birds, or the visitation of locusts; and also to such adverse natural and climatic influences as drought, east wind, and mildew.

"One (zeh ) 20 years I was with thee (tending thy flocks, but not in thy house); another (zeh ) 20 years I was for myself in thy house, serving thee 14 years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy Cattle. But in the view of Kennicott and Speaker's Commentary Jacob went to Laban at 57; in the first 14 years had sons, Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah by Leah; Dan and Naphtali by Bilhah; in the 20 years (Genesis 35:38) next had Gad and Asher by Zilpah, Issachar and Zebulun by Leah, lastly Dinah by Leah and Joseph by Rachel; then six years' service for Cattle, then flees from Padan Aram where he had been 40 years, at 97. Peeling rods of (Gesenius) storax ("poplar"), almond ("hazel"), and plane tree ("chesnut") in strips, so that the dazzling white wood of these trees should appear under the dark outside, he put them in the drinking troughs; the Cattle consequently brought forth spotted, speckled young, which by the agreement became Jacob's.
