צִפּוֹר Strong’s #6833 tsipor

Of all clean birds ye may eat.

Deuteronomy 14:11

This Hebrew word is a generic term for all birds. This word is also the name of Tsipor (Romanized as Zippor, Numbers 22:2) and Moses’ wife Tsiporah (Romanized as Zipporah, the “ah” is the feminine suffix, Exodus 2:21). The study of “Edenics” looks for connections between Hebrew and other languages. One example of this is the similarity between the Hebrew word tsipor (bird) and the word sparrow (a species of bird).
