Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

עָזְנִיָּה f. Leviticus 11:13; Deuteronomy 14:12, a species of eagle, so called from the acuteness of its vision (see Job 39:29 Il. ρ́ 674), unless perhaps עָזְנִיָּה be for עָזִּיָּה (fem. from עָזִּי strong, powerful), according to that custom of the language which has been explained above, page cc, B., compare especially in this same root מָעֻזְנֶיהָ Isaiah 23:11, for מָעֻזֶּיהָ. LXX. ἁλιαίετος. Vulg. aquila marina. I formerly compared Arab. الغَزَنُ, according to Gigg. and Castell, an eagle, or a bird like an eagle; but in the printed Kamûs (page 1786) it stands, الغَرَنُ (with Re) “a bird, either an eagle, or some other like it.” This is an authority to which we must yield.
