The meaning of Adonis in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
a-do'-nis: A name for the Babylonian god TAMMUZ, which see. The word occurs only in the English Revised Version, margin of Isaiah 17:10, where for "pleasant plants" is read "plantings of Adonis." The the American Standard Revised Version rightly omits this marginal suggestion.
