CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
She dwelleth and abideth on the rock - "He rarely quits the mountains to descend into the plains.

By night as well as by day, the eagle had his home there.
Upon the crag of the rock - Hebrew, "Upon the tooth of the rock" - from the resemblance of the crag of a rock to a tooth.
