Micah 1:16

Make yourselves bald, and cut your hair because of your precious children; enlarge your baldness like an eagle; for they shall go into captivity from you.
Read Chapter 1

Eagle. When it loses its feathers, it becomes languid. (Theodoret) This verse should be joined with the next chapter, which regards the kingdom of Israel. (Calmet)

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
That happened which we know to have been foretold of Judea by the prophet: “enlarge your baldness like the eagle.” For baldness befalls man in the head only, but the eagle in its whole body. For when it is very old, its feathers and pinions fall from all its body. She lost her feathers who lost her people. Her pinions too fell out, with which she was accustomed to fly to the prey, for all the mighty men—through which she plundered others—perished.

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