Sparrow

Mentioned among the offerings made by the very poor. Two sparrows were sold for a farthing (Matthew 10:29), and five for two farthings (Luke 12:6). The Hebrew word thus rendered is Tsippor , Which properly denotes the whole family of small birds which feed on grain (Leviticus 14:4; Psalms 84:3; 102:7). The Greek word of the New Testament is Strouthion (Matthew 10:29-31), which is thus correctly rendered.
