Bible Verses mentioning chickens?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I know there is one, Matthew 23:37
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.

Does anyone know anymore?

Why do you want to own chickens but don't?


Oops, forgot to answer your question:

Yeah, there are other references.  There's that whole bit about a rooster crowing three times.  roll

Wording varies by Bible version of course but here's a couple three...

And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. Gen 1:22

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen: The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots. He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.  Job 28

Pineapple is the fruit of hospitality.  Beans, while musical, are not.
