For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
The LORD will bring a nation from far away, from the ends of the earth, to swoop down on you like an eagle, a nation whose language you don't understand,

"Where, Lord?" they asked Him. He said to them, "Where the corpse is, there also the vultures will be gathered."
