Crane: (Isaiah 38:14; Jeremiah 8:7) In both of these passages the Authorized Version
has reversed the Hebrew order of the words. "Crane or swallow" should
be "swallow or crane," as in the Revised Version. The rendering is
there correct. The Hebrew for crane is 'agur, the Grus cincerea, a
bird well known in Palestine. It is migratory, and is distinguished
by its loud voice, its cry being hoarse and melancholy.
