Easton's Bible Dictionary


common in later times among the Jews in Palestine (Mat 23:37; Luk 13:34). It is noticeable that this familiar bird is only mentioned in these passages in connection with our Lord's lamentation over the impenitence of Jerusalem.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary


grace; quiet; rest

Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g3733 Greek: ornis


"a bird," is used, in the NT, only of a "hen," Mat 23:27; Luk 13:34.

Smith's Bible Dictionary


(rest) (1.) Probably a son of Zephaniah, and apparently the same who is called JOSIAH in Zechariah 6:10. SEE [JOSIAH, 2.].

(2.) The [chicken] hen is nowhere noticed in the Bible except in Matthew 23:37; Luke 13:34. That a bird so common in Palestine should receive such slight notice is certainly peculiar.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
