leeneia Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird? (94* d) RE: Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird? 14 Oct 19


Here's one version of the verse in question.

New International Version
Has not my inheritance become to me like a speckled bird of prey that other birds of prey surround and attack? Go and gather all the wild beasts; bring them to devour.
==========
As a birdwatcher, I have seen small birds attacking birds of prey, but never one bird of prey attacking another.

My father used to say of an airplane that "It took off like a great speckled bird!"
