Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
RAVIN . The vb. ‘to raven,’ i.e. prey upon, and the subst. ‘raven’ or ‘ravin,’ i.e. prey, both occur in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] . We find also the adj. ‘ravening’ ( Psalms 22:13 , Matthew 7:15 ) as well as the form ‘ravenous’ ( Isaiah 35:9; Isaiah 46:11 , Ezekiel 39:4 ). ‘Ravening’ is used as a subst. in Luke 11:39 ‘Your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness’ (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘extortion’).
