Peacock: (Heb. tuk, apparently borrowed from the Tamil tokei). This bird is
indigenous to India. It was brought to Solomon by his ships from
(1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21) which in this case was probably a
district on the Malabar coast of India, or in Ceylon. The word so
(Job 39:13) literally means wild, tumultuous crying, and
properly denotes the female ostrich (q.v.).
