That would depend upon the context in which it is used as is almost
always the case with any word.  No word is used in the same way in all
circumstances.  It frequently is translated as "desert", but our concept
of desert as a dry, sandy, barren place may not be correct in all
instances.  Sometimes it is simply "wilderness" or "pasture land."
