Enjoy this rare footage of Israel’s most magnificent animals, the Nubian Ibex. An incredible (and cute!) glimpse into Israel’s wildlife.
WATCH: Wow! Return to the time of the Old Testament in this spectacular video showing the animals known as "hinds" in the bible. The Rare Nubian Ibex captivate everyone at the tour of David's hideaway. Ibex were known as hinds in the Bible – in 2 Samuel 22:34, Job 39:1, Psalm 18:33, Psalm 29:9, Song of Solomon 2:7, Song of Solomon 3:5 and Habakkuk 3:19. It is first mentioned in Genesis 49:21: “Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.”The Ibex is also referenced in the story of David’s encounter with Saul in En Gedi in 1 Samuel 24:1-2 – but not by name.“And it came to pass, when Saul was returned from following the Philistines, that it was told him, saying, Behold, David is in the wilderness of Engedi. Then Saul took three thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and went to seek David and his men upon the rocks of the wild goats.”
