Hosea 8:1

Set the trumpet to your mouth. He shall come as an eagle over the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.

Eagle. It makes a noise like a trumpet. (Pliny, x. 3.) Osee denounces judgments on the house of Israel, which, though schismatical, was not entirely abandoned by the Lord. Salmanasar overturned the kingdom, and may be compared to an eagle, as Nabuchodonosor is frequently, Ezechiel xvii. 3. But he is not here meant. (Calmet) The temple shall be destroyed by him; (St. Jerome) yet not so soon. (Worthington) Septuagint, "In their bosom like earth appears, like an eagle "(Haydock)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
