The East Wind

In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind. Isaiah 27:8

A hot east wind blows across Egypt and Israel during the months of May and October and fills the air with a yellow haze of dust. It often lasts three days or more.

Today this is called hamsin ( hahm- seen). This wind is mentioned in the Bible as a symbol of God’s wrath.
