The Meaning of the Dew
From a biblical point of view, what does "dew" mean?
Dew is used to refer to blessings, favor, prosperity, resurrection, long life, and to describe how an army covers the earth. It can also describe how an eagle covers her young or how God covers His people. We can see a well-known example in Isaac's blessing of Jacob in Genesis 27:28: "Therefore may God give you of the dew of heaven, of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine."

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEW TO ISRAEL
Dew was a present necessity to the people of Israel as it is today to the people of the same lands, so Yahweh says, "I will be as the dew unto Israel" (Hosea 14:5) It was especially valued by the children of Israel in the desert, for it supplied the manna for their sustenance (Exodus 16:13; Numbers 11:9).
DEW IS A SYMBOL OF BLESSING
Isaac in blessing Jacob asked that the "dew of heaven" (Genesis 27:28) may be granted to him; that these things which make for fertility and prosperity may be his portion. "The remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples as dew from Yahweh" (Micah 5:7), as a means of blessing to the nations. "Blessed of Yahweh for .... dew" (Deuteronomy 33:13).
DEW IS A SYMBOL OF REFRESHMENT
Dew is the means of refreshing and reinvigorating all vegetation. Many Scripture references carry out this idea. The song of Moses says, "My speech shall distill as the dew" (Deuteronomy 32:2). "A cloud of dew" (Isaiah 18:4) refreshes the harvesters. "My head is filled with dew" (Song of Solomon 5:2). "Like the dew of Hermon" (Psalms 133:3). "Thou hast the dew of thy youth" (Psalms 110:3). "Thy dew is as the dew of herbs" (Isaiah 26:19). Job said of the time of his prosperity, "The dew lieth all night upon my branch" (Job 29:19).
Proverbs 19:20 – Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days.
