Like a bird that flees its nest is anyone who flees from home.
Read Proverbs 27:8 Using Other Translations
As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.
Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.
A person who strays from home is like a bird that strays from its nest.
