Mark 6:39 - Green Grass

Daily reading and paused over this passage:

Mar 6:39  And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.

Not just grass, green grass, which I find interesting.  Again, after how many readings and I just now noticed the adjective?

Green – G5515 - From the same as G5514; greenish, that is, verdant, dun-colored: - green, pale.  Total KJV occurrences: 4
·         G5514 - Feminine of apparently a primary word; “green”; Chloe, a Christian female: - Chloe.  Total KJV occurrences: 1

G5515 Uses:
Rev 6:8  And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev 8:7  The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Rev 9:4  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

The word ‘green’ is used 41 times in Scripture – the first usage is in Genesis 1:30.
