  In Delitzsch's /Hebrew-English New Testament/ we have words for 'hen'
  and for 'chickens' or 'brood' at Matthew 23:37 and Luke 13:34.

  'Hen' is TaR:N:GoLeT

Just like I said

and 'chickens' are 'P:RoXoWT

HUH????  What word is THAT?

  in both places, rendering
  the Greek ORNIS and NOSSIA respectively.


What does that, whatever it is, have to do with Hebrew?
