The rendering in the Authorized Version of the Hebrew daah, dayyah, and also in (Job 28:7) of ayyah. There seems no doubt that the Authorized Versions translation is incorrect, and that the original words refer to some of the smaller species of raptorial birds, as kites or buzzards. But the Hebrew word nesher, invariably rendered "eagle" in the Authorized Version, is probably the vulture.
