on the high mountain of Israel I will plant it,
and it will bring forth boughs and bear fruit,
and be a mighty cedar.
And under it will live birds of every kind;
in the shade of its branches they will live. Bible other translations

“birds of every kind.” The Hebrew is idiomatic: “all birds of every wing.” Reading the Hebrew text without understanding it makes it sound like every bird on earth will live under the tree, and that is not what the text is saying; every kind of bird will be there.
