14鹞鹰 、小鹰 与其类 ;
14And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
14 Verse 14. The vulture] daah, from the root to fly,

and therefore more probably the kite or glede, from its remarkable

property of gliding or sailing with expanded wings through the

air. The daah is a different bird from the daiyah,

which signifies the vulture. See Bochart, vol. iii., col. 195.



The kite] aiyah, thought by some to be the vulture,

by others the merlin. Parkhurst thinks it has its name from the

root avah, to covet, because of its rapaciousness; some

contend that the kite is meant. That it is a species of the

hawk, most learned men allow. See Bochart, vol. iii., col. 192.
