Matthew 24:28

Carcase (ptwma). As in Revelation 14:12 , the corpse. Originally a fallen body from piptw, to fall, like Latin cadaver from cado, to fall. The proverb here as in Luke 17:37 , is like that in Job 39:30 ; Proverbs 30:17 . Eagles (aetoi). Perhaps the griffon vulture, larger than the eagle, which (Aristotle) was often seen in the wake of an army and followed Napoleon's retreat from Russia.
