Leviticus 11:14

_ _ the vulture — The word so rendered in our version means more probably “the kite” or “glede” and describes a varying but majestic flight, exactly that of the kite, which now darts forward with the rapidity of an arrow, now rests motionless on its expanded wings in the air. It feeds on small birds, insects, and fish.

_ _ the kite — the vulture. In Egypt and perhaps in the adjoining countries also, the kite and vulture are often seen together flying in company, or busily pursuing their foul but important office of devouring the carrion and relics of putrefying flesh, which might otherwise pollute the atmosphere.

_ _ after his kind — that is, the prohibition against eating it extended to the whole species.
