while such as wade in mud have long
legs, bare of feathers; and ducks, and
such as swim, have webbed feet. Such
as live on prey have crooked bills to tear
flesh; and those which pierce trees for
insects have them strong and sharp;
while those which grope in the mud
have flat bills, with nerves reaching to
the extremities, possessing the quickest
sense of feeling. Moses was directed, in
his inspired laws, to prohibit the use of
various fowls as unclean, and unfit for
food to the Israelites, Lev. 11:13-20;

by the Egyptians, as emblems of their
fabulous divinity Osiris, God punished
them by the ministry of Moses with
miraculous swarms of these creatures;
so that they crept numerously into their
houses, crawling even upon their beds
