Mentioned among the offerings made by the very poor. Two sparrows were sold for a farthing (Matthew 10:29
), and five for two farthings (Luke 12:6
). The Hebrew word thus rendered is Tsippor
, Which properly denotes the whole family of small birds which feed on grain ( Leviticus 14:4
; Psalm 84:3
). The Greek word of the New Testament is Strouthion
( Matthew 10:29-31
), which is thus correctly rendered.
