      Dr. Shaw observes, "Besides a bowl of milk, and a basket of
      figs, raisins, or dates, which upon our arrival were presented
      to us, to stay our appetite, the master of the tent fetched us
      from his flock, according to the number of our company, a kid
      or a goat, a lamb or a sheep; half of which was immediately
      seethed by his wife, and served up with {cucasoe;} the rest
      was made {kab-ab,} i.e., cut to pieces and roasted, which we
      reserved for our breakfast or dinner next day."  May we not
      suppose, says Mr. Harmer, that Gideon presented some slight
      refreshment to the supposed prophet, according to the present
      Arab mode, and desired him to stay till he could provide
      something more substantial; that he immediately killed a kid,
      seethed a part of it, and when ready brought the stewed meat
      in a pot, with unleavened cakes of bread, which he had baked;
      and the other part, the {kab-ab,} in a basket for him to carry
      with him, for some after repast in his journey?
