This day Yahweh will deliver you into my hand and I will strike you down and remove your head from you. I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild animals of the earth, so that all the earth will know that there is a God in Israel Bible other translations

“the birds of the air.” The Hebrew is literally, “the birds of the heavens,” but the Hebrew word “heavens” is always plural, there is no singular word “heaven” in Hebrew.
