  Bullock 
  (1.)  The  translation  of  a  word  which  is  a  generic  name  for 
  horned  cattle  (Isa.  65:25).  It  is  also  rendered  cow"  (Ezek. 
  4:15),  ox"  (Gen.  12:16). 
 
  (2.)  The  translation  of  a  word  always  meaning  an  animal  of  the 
  ox  kind  without  distinction  of  age  or  sex  (Hos.  12:11).  It  is 
  rendered  cow"  (Num.  18:17)  and  ox"  (Lev.  17:3). 
 
  (3.)  Another  word  is  rendered  in  the  same  way  (Jer.  31:18).  It 
  is  also  translated  calf"  (Lev.  9:3;  Micah  6:6).  It  is  the  same 
  word  used  of  the  "molten  calf"  (Ex.  32:4,  8)  and  "the  golden 
  calf"  (1  Kings  12:28). 
 
  (4.)  In  Judg.  6:25;  Isa.  34:7,  the  Hebrew  word  is  different. 
  It  is  the  customary  word  for  bulls  offered  in  sacrifice.  In  Hos. 
  14:2,  the  Authorized  Version  has  "calves,"  the  Revised  Version 
  "bullocks."
