On the Wings of an Eagle ✡ “It Grows Wings And Flies Away” – Israel365

You see it, then it is gone; It grows wings and flies away,
Like an eagle, heavenward

Proverbs 23:5 (The Israel Bible™)

הֲתָעִיף עֵינֶיךָ בּוֹ וְאֵינֶנּוּ כִּי עָשֹׂה יַעֲשֶׂה־לּוֹ כְנָפַיִם כְּנֶשֶׁר יָעוּף הַשָּׁמָיִם
Hear the verse in Hebrew

ha-ta-EEF ay-NE-kha BO v’-ay-NE-nu KEE a-SOH ya-a-seh LO kh’-na-FA-yim k’-NE-sher ya-UF ha-sha-MA-yim

On the Wings of an Eagle

The eagle is a prominent bird in the Bible and in Jewish thought. The eagle is able to fly higher than most other birds. According to the medieval commentator RashiHashem(God) uses the metaphor of the eagle when describing the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt for this exact reason. Most other types of birds carry their young from their legs, dangling beneath them. Alternatively, eagles who fly higher than other birds, carry their young on their backs. Since the eagle flies higher than other birds, it fears no other flying predators. The eagle’s only concern is people who may shoot at it’s young from below, and so it uses its own body as a shield for its children. Similarly, Hashem placed His angel between the Children of Israel and the Egyptians to protect His children from any potential attacks.
