Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַיָּה f. (for אַוְיָה, from the root אָוָה No. II.), prop. cry, clamour, hence

(1) some unclean clamourous bird of prey, Leviticus 11:14, Deuteronomy 14:13, to which very great acuteness of sight is attributed. Job 28:7. LXX. and Vulg. sometimes render it vulture, sometimes kite. Nor is the opinion of Bochart improbable (Hieroz. ii. p.193, seq.) that it is a kind of falcon, called by the Arabs يويو [“i.e. falco œsalon”] now called smirle, emerillon [Eng. merlin]. However, the Hebrew word may perhaps be more comprehensive, and include all the hawk or falcon tribe, whence Lev. and Deu. locc. citt. there is added לְמִינָהּ.

(2) [Ajah, Aiah], pr.n. m.

(a) Genesis 36:24.

(b) 2 Samuel 3:7, 21:8.
