Ants working together for the
common good is to be taken as a lesson to men, who
should work in unity.
The splitting of the grain represents the separation
that must be made in the interpretation of the
Bible, distinguishing the literal from the spiritual
meaning, "lest the law interpreted literally should
kill you". Some sources compare the ants to the
Jews, who have taken the law literally and have
"died of hunger".
The barley the ants reject signifies the heresy that
Christians are to cast away.
The Easton Bible Dictionary provides the following
definition, meaning and emblem for the Ant in the
Bible. (Heb. nemalah, from a word meaning to creep,
cut off, destroy), referred to in Prov. 6:6; 30:25,
as distinguished for its prudent habits. Many ants
in Palestine feed on animal substances, but others
draw their nourishment partly or exclusively from
vegetables. To the latter class belongs the ant to
which Solomon refers. This ant gathers the seeds in
the season of ripening, and stores them for future
use; a habit that has been observed in ants in
Texas, India, and Italy.
