Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חֲסִידָה f. the stork, prop. the pious (bird), so called from its love towards [“its parents and”] its young, of which the ancients made much mention (see Plin. H. N. x. 28. Ælian. Hist. Anim. iii. 23; x. 26); as, on the contrary, the Arabs call the female ostrich ظَليِمُ impious bird, on account of her neglect of her young; (see Job 39:13, seq.) Levit. 11:19 Deuteronomy 14:18 Psal. 104:17 Jeremiah 8:7; Zechariah 5:9 see Bochart, Hier. ii. 327, seq.- Job 39:13, חֲסִידָה is not to be taken as the name of the stork, but as the fem. adj. pious, yet with an allusion to the stork. The words are, “the wing of the ostrich exults, אִם אֶבְרָה חֲסִידָה וְנוֹצָה but (is her) wing and feather (also) pious?” i.e. but she is not (like the stork) pious or affectionate towards her young, but she treats them cruelly (verses -1416 ).
