PREY (0. Fr. preie, mod. proie, Lat. praeda, booty, from prae and the root hed - seen in prehendere, prendere, to grasp), booty, spoil, plunder taken in war, by robbery, or other violent means; particularly the quarry, the animal killed for food by a carnivorous animal; a beast or bird of prey. A particular usage for that which is saved from any trial of strength or battle is familiar from the Bible (Jer. xxi. 9) "his life shall be unto him for a prey."
