Matthew chapter 24: is taken up with apostasy, tribulation, and judgment. The "carcase" no doubt represents the corrupt and apostate part of the Jewish nation, and finally will include all nations. The "eagles" symbolize the judgment of God, and the angels as His instruments of judgment. The imagery seems to be taken from job 39:27-30. There the eagle is seen on "the rock" and "the strong place." "From thence she seeketh the prey and her eyes behold afar off." "Where the slain are, there is she." The verse in Matthew is a picture of sudden, swift, and sure judgment.
