דוביפת , Leviticus 11:19; Deuteronomy 14:18 . The bird intended by the Hebrew name in these places is undoubtedly the hoopoe; a very beautiful, but most unclean and filthy, species of birds. The Septuagint renders it εποπα ; and the Vulgate, upupa; which is the same with the Arabian interpreters. The Egyptian name of the bird is kukuphah; and the Syrian, kikuphah, which approach the Hebrew dukiphath, it may have its name from the noise or cry it makes, which is very remarkable, and may be heard a great way.
