Partridge

A well-known bird, three varieties of which are found in Palestine. Saul's hunting of David like a partridge upon the mountain, 1 Samuel 26:20 , may be illustrated by an occasional practice of the Arabs, who, observing that this bird becomes languid on being started several times in quick succession, at length rush suddenly in upon it and knock it over with their clubs. In Jeremiah 17:11 , we may best render, as the partridge gathereth eggs which she hath not laid; the meaning being that she loses her toil since the young birds, when hatched, forsake her.
