Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Crane
     (Isa. 38:14; Jer. 8:7). In both of these passages the Authorized
     Version has reversed the Hebrew order of the words. "Crane or
     swallow" should be "swallow or crane," as in the Revised
     Version. The rendering is there correct. The Hebrew for crane is
     _'agur_, the Grus cincerea, a bird well known in Palestine. It
     is migratory, and is distinguished by its loud voice, its cry
     being hoarse and melancholy.
