Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קֹרֵא m.

(1)  a partridge, prob. so called from the cry, prop. crying out, calling (as the German hunters say of the partridge, “das Rebhuhn ruft”), compare Krähe from krähen, and Arab. قطا i.e. a bird very like a partridge, so called also from its cry (see Burckhardt’s Travels, p. 503, 1067); 1 Samuel 26:20; Jeremiah 17:11 (in which latter passage allusion is made to the fable of ancient naturalists, that the partridge steals the eggs of other birds and sits on them. [The idea is not to be borne that inspired Scripture can in any way sanction fables.])

(2) [Kore], pr.n. m. 1 Chronicles 9:19; 2 Chronicles 31:14.
