Vulture.

Vulture. [N] [E]

The rendering in the Authorized Version of the Hebrew daah, dayyah , and also in ( Job 28:7 ) of ayyah . There seems no doubt that the Authorized Versions translation is incorrect, and that the original words refer to some of the smaller species of raptorial birds, as kites or buzzards. [KITE] But the Hebrew word nesher , invariably rendered "eagle" in the Authorized Version, is probably the vulture. [EAGLE]
