עִיט Strong’s #5860 iyt

And the people flew upon the spoil, and took sheep, and oxen, and calves, and slew them on the ground; and the people did eat them with the blood.

1 Samuel 14:32


The fuller meaning of this word is “a bird of prey” (which is the noun ayit (Strongs #5861) and is related to iyt) that “swiftly falls down onto its prey” (the noun aht (Strong’s #5706) but, written defectively in the Bible asahd, is also related toiyt), tightly grabbing hold of it with its talons to squeeze the life out of it. Notice this imagery in 1 Samuel 14:32 and the people “pounced” the plunder and took the sheep and the cattle.
