BARRENNESS An affliction peculiarly lamented throughout the East, Ge 16:1 30:1-23 1Sa 1:6,19 Isa 47:9 49:21 Lu 1:25, especially by the Jewish women, who remembered the promised Messiah, Ge 3:15, and hoped for the honor of his parentage. The strength of this feeling is evinced by the extraordinary and often unjustifiable measures it led them to adopt, Ge 16:2 19:31 38:14 De 25:5-10. Professed Christians are charged with barrenness, if they are destitute of the fruits of the Spirit, and do not abound in good works, Lu 13:6-9 2Pe 1:8.
