נְאוֹת ne'ot pasture, place where flocks are grazed. In Joel 1:19-20; 2:22 and Jer 9:9; 23:10; 25:37 they are explicitly "pastures in the wilderness" thus fairly sparse and dry areas. While, by contrast the "pastures" mentioned in Ps 23:2 are said to be "green". In Am 1:2 they are expected to be a source of food for the flock, but are in fact withered.
