As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.
The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
The conies [are but] a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
The ants [are] a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
Provideth her meat in the summer, [and] gathereth her food in the harvest.
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
