Bible Birds – Falcon

Peregrine Falcon by Ray

Peregrine Falcon by Ray

“And these you shall regard as an abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, the vulture, the buzzard, the kite, and the falcon after its kind;” (Leviticus 11:13-14 NKJV)

The Falcon is mentioned in three verses in the New King James Version of the Bible. Leviticus 11:14; [above]; “the red kite, the falcon, and the kite after their kinds;” (Deuteronomy 14:13 NKJV); and “That path no bird knows, Nor has the falcon’s eye seen it.” (Job 28:7 NKJV)

  1. That’s one of my many questions that will be answered in eternity: why did God create a beautiful falcon, and call it an abomination? It must be good to Him (Gen 1.21 …”and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”), but never meant to be eaten.

    • I don’t recall the Lord calling the falcon an abomination. They were told not to eat most of those birds because of what they eat. Lord was protecting the Israelites health more than anything. We are under a curse and unfortunately, birds and the world were also subjected to that curse.
