Lilies of the Field

Matthew 6:28 "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
Matthew 6:29 "And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
Exodus 2:3 "And when she could not longer hide him (referring to the baby Moses), she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink."

Story Line -- Moses was born a long time ago in Egypt. But he was not an Egyptian. He was an Israelite. At that time the Pharaoh of Egypt gave an order that every newborn baby boy was to be thrown into the Nile River and killed, but baby girls could live.

The words "lilies of the field" and "flags" in the cited Bible Verses refer to the iris flower.

Lily of the Valley, daylily, or the true lily as we know them today, are not native to the Holy Land. Solomon's Glory indicates clothing that are deeply rich in color. The only flowers native to the Holy Land that would provide this deeply rich color are the Aril Iris.

Pseudocorus An Aril Iris cannot tolerate a swampy river brink environment. These flags (iris) are most likely what we know as I. pseudacorus. Irises were called flags because of the shape of the leaf.

What we would call a pennant today is the same shape as the flag of ancient times. The shape of I. pseudacorus foliage is that of a pennant (flag). Occasionally, the word pennant appears in some versions of the Bible and refers to flags (iris).
