Sparrow: Mentioned among the offerings made by the very poor. Two sparrows were
sold for a farthing
(Matthew 10:29) and five for two farthings
The Hebrew word thus rendered is tsippor, which properly denotes the
whole family of small birds which feed on grain
(Leviticus 14:4; Psalms 84:3; 102:7)
The Greek word of the New Testament is strouthion
which is thus correctly rendered.
