—Hebrew Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) worm, scarlet stuff, crimson
    1a) worm - the female 'coccus ilicis'
    1b) scarlet stuff, crimson, scarlet
        1b1) the dye made from the dried body of the female of the
             worm "coccus ilicis"
 2) worm, maggot
    2a) worm, grub
    2b) the worm "coccus ilicis"

   When the female of the scarlet worm species was ready to give
 birth to her young, she would attach her body to the trunk of
 a tree, fixing herself so firmly and permanently that she would
 never leave again. The eggs deposited beneath her body were
 thus protected until the larvae were hatched and able to enter
 their own life cycle. As the mother died, the crimson fluid
 stained her body and the surrounding wood. From the dead bodies
 of such female scarlet worms, the commercial scarlet dyes of
 antiquity were extracted.
   What a picture this gives of Christ, dying on the tree,
 shedding His precious blood that He might "bring many sons unto
 glory" (Heb. 2:10)! He died for us, that we might live through
   Ps. 22:6 describes such a worm and gives us this picture of
 Christ. (cf. Isa 1:18)
   (from page 73, "Biblical Basis for Modern Science", 1985,
    Baker Book House, by Henry Morris)
