The eagle’s diving speed can exceed 100 miles per hour. At this speed, the eagle’s eyesight must be perfect in order to know exactly when to pull out of a dive. Its eyes are designed to spot a rabbit or fish up to one mile away. The eagle also has remarkably designed wings, each covered by over 12,000 feathers. Aircraft designers are still trying to copy this engineering marvel.

Besides the ability to climb to 10,000 feet within minutes, the parent eagle also assists its young in flight. As it flies alongside the eaglet, whirlpools of air formed by its primary feathers provide the eaglet with additional lift.

In speaking of His protective care over the nation of Israel, God states, “. . . I bare you on eagle’s wings . . .”  (Exodus 19:4 KJV)  The Hebrew word for “bare” is nacah and its primary root means to “lift”. This is exactly what the parent does to help its young in flight.

The precise selection and meaning of words used in the Bible is testimony to both the accuracy and precision of this remarkable book.

The above was taken from Character Sketches, Vol. III, p171-174 as quoted in A Closer Look At The Evidence, by Richard & Tina Kleiss.

You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. (Exodus 19:4)
