Smith's Bible Dictionary
Vulture. The rendering in the Authorized Version of the Hebrew, daah, dayyah, and also in Job 28:7 of ayyah. There seems no doubt that the Authorized Versions translation is incorrect, and that the original words refer to some of the smaller species of raptorial birds, as kites or buzzards. See Kite. But the Hebrew word, nesher, invariably rendered "eagle" in the Authorized Version, is probably the vulture. See Eagle.
