Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נֶשֶׁר [in pause נָשֶׁר], plur. נְשָׁרִים, constr. נִשְׁרִי m. an eagle (Arab. نسْرُ, Syr. ܢܫܶܪܐܳ, Eth. ንስር፡ id.), Deuteronomy 32:11; Ezekiel 17:3. This name, however, is one of wider extent, and sometimes also (like the Gr. ἀετός and Arab. نسر see Bochart, Hieroz. II. p. 312, seqq.) comprehends the different kinds of vultures; especially in those places in which נֶשֶׁר is said to be bald (Micah 1:16), and to feed on dead bodies, Job 39:27; Proverbs 30:17 (Matthew 24:28). The former appears to be the vultur barbatus. To the eagle itself, which often changes its feathers, just as a serpent its skin, we must refer the words, Psalms 103:5, “so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” See Bochart, Hieroz. loc. cit., and the observations made thereon by Rosenm. t. ii, p. 743, seq., ed. Lips. Oedmann, Verm. Sammll. aus der Naturkunde, i. 5 (who, by a manifest error, would apply all the occurrences to the vulture, and none to the eagle).
