Job 39:30

Hebrew Bible

26 “Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars and spreads its wings toward the south? 27 Is it at your command that the eagle soars and builds its nest on high? 28 It lives on a rock and spends the night there, on a rocky crag and a fortress. 29 From there it spots its prey; its eyes gaze intently from a distance. 30 And its young ones devour the blood, and where the dead carcasses are, there it is.

Matthew 24:28

New Testament

26 So then, if someone says to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe him. 27 For just like the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. 28 Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather. 29 “Immediately after the suffering of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man arriving on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Source
