Easton's Bible Dictionary - Turtle, Turtle-Dove
Its peculiar peaceful and gentle habit its often referred to in Scripture. A pair was offered in sacrifice by Mary at her purification (Luke 2:24 ). The pigeon and the turtle-dove were the only birds permitted to be offered in sacrifice (Leviticus 1:14 ; 5:7 ; 14:22 ; 15:14,29 , etc.). The Latin name of this bird, Turtur , Is derived from its note, and is a repetition of the Hebrew name Tor . Three species are found in Palestine, (1) the turtle-dove (Turtur auritus), (2) the collared turtle (T. risorius), and (3) the palm turtle (T. Senegalensis). But it is to the first of these species which the various passages of Scripture refer. It is a migratory bird ( Jeremiah 8:7 ; Song of Solomon 2:11,12 ). "Search the glades and valleys, even by sultry Jordan, at the end of March, and not a turtle-dove is to be seen. Return in the second week of April, and clouds of doves are feeding on the clovers of the plain. They overspread the whole face of the land." "Immediately on its arrival it pours forth from every garden, grove, and wooded hill its melancholy yet soothing ditty unceasingly from early dawn till sunset. It is from its plaintive and continuous note, doubtless, that David, pouring forth his heart's sorrow to God, compares himself to a turtle-dove" (Psalm 74:19 ).
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Turtle, Turtle-Dove
Turtur auritus (Heb. tor ). The name is phonetic, evidently derived from the plaintive cooing of the bird. It is one of the smaller members of the group of birds which ornithologists usually call pigeons . The turtle-dove occurs first in Scripture in ( Genesis 15:9 ) In the Levitical law a pair of turtle-doves or of young pigeons are constantly prescribed as a substitute for those who were too poor to provide a lamb or a kid. The offering of two young pigeons must have been one easily within the reach of the poorest. The admission of a pair of turtle-doves was perhaps a yet further concession to extreme poverty, for they were extremely numerous, and their young might easily be found and captured by those who did not possess pigeons. In the valley of the Jordan, an allied species, the palm-dove (so named because it builds its nest in the palm tree), or Egyptian turtle-- Turtur aegyptiacus , Temm.--is by no means uncommon. It is not improbable that the palm-dove may in some measure have supplied the sacrifice in the wilderness, for it is found in amazing numbers wherever the palm tree occurs, whether wild or cultivated. From its habit of pairing for life, and its fidelity to its mate, the turtle-dove was a symbol of purity and an appropriate offering. The regular migration of the turtle-dove and its return in the spring are alluded to in ( Jeremiah 8:7 ) and Song of Solomon 2:11,12 It is from its plaintive note doubtless that David in ( Psalm 74:19 ) pouring forth his lament to God, compares himself to a turtle-dove.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Turtle (Dove)
tor ; Latin, tur-tur , from imitation of its cooing note. Abraham's offering (Genesis 15:9) with a young pigeon (gozal ). A pair was the poor man's substitute for the lamb or kid, as trespass, sin, or burnt offering (Leviticus 12:6); so the Virgin mother for her purification, through poverty (Luke 2:24; 2 Corinthians 8:9). Also in the case of a Nazarite accidentally defiled by a dead body (Numbers 6:10). Owing to its being migratory and timid, the turtle was never domesticated as the pigeon; but being numerous, and building its nest in gardens, it afforded its young as an easy prey to those who did not own even pigeons. The palm dove, Τurtur Αegyptiacus , probably supplied the sacrifices in Israel's desert journey, for its nests abound in palms on oases. Its habit of pairing for life, and its love to its mate, made it a symbol of purity and so a suitable offering.
Jeremiah (Jeremiah 8:7) makes its return at its proper time in spring a tacit reproof of Israel who know not the seasonable time of returning to Him when the "winter" of His wrath is past and He invites them back to the "spring" of His favor. Christ in inviting His people to gospel hopes from past legalism ("the winter is past": Matthew 4:16; 1 John 2:8; also past estrangement through sin, Isaiah 44:22; Jeremiah 50:20; 2 Corinthians 5:17) says "the voice of the turtle is heard in the land" (Song of Solomon 2:11-12). the emblem of love and so of the Holy Spirit. Love is the keynote of the new song of the redeemed (Revelation 1:5; Revelation 14:3; Revelation 19:6; Isaiah 35:10).
The turtle dove represents "the congregation of God's poor" which the psalmist (Psalms 74:19) prays God not to deliver "unto the wild beasts" (Septuagint, Vulgate, Arabic), or "to the greedy host" (Maurer). The turtle marks the return of spring still more than other singing birds, for it alone unceasingly sings from morn until sunset. The Τurtur auritus abounds in Palestine; plaintive tender melancholy characterizes its note. The turtle is smaller, more slender and elegant, than the pigeon. It is also distinguished by having the tall feathers graduated in length, and forming together a wedge in shape; the first quill feather of the wing is narrow and pointed. A black band passes nearly round the neck of the collared species, which is of a pale hue. From its prevalence in N. Africa it is called the Barbary dove.

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Dove (Turtle)
Genesis 15:9 (c) This covenant was instituted by GOD with Abram; and the animals used in establishing the covenant were to assure Abram that though his people would be in the furnace of Egypt suffering under the lash and slavery, yet through it all the sacrifice would be effective for them, and they would be able to maintain a light for GOD through all their tribulation. Probably the various animals mentioned represent different aspects of the value of the sacrifice in the eyes of men. (See also Leviticus 12:6; Leviticus 14:22).
Leviticus 1:5, Leviticus 1:10, Leviticus 1:14 (c) This small offering, the dove, may represent a small view or knowledge of CHRIST, which is often the case with some converts. They only see that JESUS saves, and they trust Him to do it. Other converts have a greater knowledge of CHRIST, the "lamb" understanding of the value of CHRIST. Others have a very large grasp of the truth when they are saved, and this is the "bullock" aspect.
Psalm 74:19 (a) Asaph, the song leader for David, compares himself to this weak, powerless and defenseless bird. He desired the protecting care of the Almighty GOD because of his own weakness.
Isaiah 38:14 (a) This is a type of one who is depressed, discouraged and disconsolate.
Jeremiah 48:28 (b) Here is a type of one who has tried every refuge and then finally flies to CHRIST to hide under His protection and care.
Matthew 3:16 (a) Here is represented the manner in which the Spirit descended. The Spirit did not look like a dove, neither did JESUS look like a sheep. The Spirit descended in great sweeping spirals as a dove descends and rests upon the ground. The passage refers only to the action and the manner in which the Spirit descended, and does not refer to the shape of the Holy Spirit for none of the persons of the Godhead are shaped like the animal with which they are compared or contrasted. (See also Mark 1:10, Luke 3:22, John 1:32).
Song of Solomon 2:14 (a) Some believe that the church is referred to in this passage, and others believe that it is the Lord JESUS. It seems more likely to be the church, for the church is weak and helpless, and the rock probably represents the Lord JESUS in whom we Christians hide. (See also Song of Solomon 5:2; Song of Solomon 6:9).
Hosea 7:11 (a) Ephraim is a name applied to backsliding Israel. In this passage she is compared to this poor, simple, helpless bird which is a prey to every enemy. (See also Hosea 11:11).
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Turtle, Turtle Dove
Where the word 'turtle' occurs in the A.V. the 'turtle-dove' is always to be understood. They are of the family of pigeons, and are plentiful in Palestine, of which there are several species. They could easily be procured by the poorest for the offerings, and a pair of them was brought when the Lord was presented in the temple. Genesis 15:9 ; Leviticus 1:14 ; Leviticus 5:7,11 ; Leviticus 12:6,8 ; Numbers 6:10 ; Psalm 74:19 ; Jeremiah 8:7 ; Luke 2:24 . They are the harbinger of spring and when they return from their migration are a symbol of fruitfulness. Song of Solomon 2:12 . The Turtur risorius is a dove found in Palestine. See DOVE.
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Turtle
The Holy Ghost hath been pleased to say so much concerning this bird in his sacred word, that I think it a duty, as well as a pleasure, to enquire somewhat concerning a bird so particularly recommended to our notice.
In the law, we find many offerings appointed of the turtle; and before the law, Abraham was directed to the use of, the turtle in sacrifice, by the Lord himself. (See Genesis 15:9) But what I would yet more particularly desire the reader to regard concerning the turtle, is the application of it in a figurative way to several characters in Scripture. The church calls herself, the Lord's turtle dove, (Psalms 74:19) and begs the Lord as such to keep her from her enemies; and Jesus calls the church his dove, (Song of Song of Solomon 2:14) as if in answer to this cry, and bids her see her security, for that she is in the cliffs of the rock—perhaps, meaning the secret decrees of JEHOVAH, or, in Christ, the rock of ages, or probably both.
But some have supposed that by the turtle is meant God the Holy Ghost, whose voice is said, (Song of Song of Solomon 2:12) after the long winter of the Jewish dispensation, to be heard in our land. And no doubt the voice of the Holy Ghost might truly be said to be heard, when by the preaching of the gospel salvation was proclaimed in the name, and by the blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ.
While speaking on this subject, I hope I shall be pardoned when I add, that all representation off God the Holy Ghost by the pictures and paintings of a dove are improper, and disgrace the subject they are intended to honour: neither are they Scriptural, nor founded in any one authority of the Lord.
I am not to be told that the custom hath arisen from the subject of our Lord's baptism, where it is said that "when Jesus went up straightway out of the water, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him." (Matthew 3:16) But this by no means becomes the least authority for the representing the Holy Ghost as a dove; for the passage expressly saith, that the Spirit of God was seen by Jesus descending as a dove descends, that is, hovering over a thing, and at length resting upon it: so the Holy Ghost descended, and rested upon Christ. But if the passage had meant to say, that the Holy Ghost descended in the shape and form of adore, the words would have been very different. Every one, that knows the original, knows that the words are (osei peristeran), which is, as the words are rendered in our Testament, like a dove; but if it had been meant to say, that the Holy Ghost came down in the shape and form of a dove, the words ought to have been, osei peristeras. There is a most essential difference between the two.
In the descent of the Holy Ghost at the day of Pentecost, we find the representation very much to the same purport, and if compared with this of St. Matthew, will serve to throw great light upon it. "And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them." (Acts 2:3) Now here the words are, like as of fire, (osei puros) not really fire, but like as of fire. So in the former instance, like a dove; not really a dove, but like it; for it was indeed, and in truth, the Holy Ghost that hovered over the person of the Lord Jesus, and rested upon him, as a dove when descending hovers over a thing, and at length resteth upon it. This plain illustration of the passage, will fully prove the meaning of the evangelists, and, of consequence, shew how unscriptural, irreverent, and improper, it must be to paint the invisible and eternal Spirit in the figure of a dove.
And I beg the reader before he dismisseth the subject, that he will take with him the consideration what a blessed, full, and unanswerable testimony this passage, concerning Christ's baptism, affords to the glorious doctrine of our holy faith. "There are three which heart record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one." (1 John 5:7) Here was Jesus in the act of being baptized; here was the Holy Ghost descending like a dove, and lighting upon him; and here was the voice of God the Father from heaven saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:16-17) Reader, I beseech you to carry this precious testimony about with you wherever you go, as among the sweetest credentials of your holy religion. It will serve, under the Lord, to act as an antidote against the poisonous and pestilential vapours of the present adulterous and sinful generation.
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Turtle-Dove
Turtle-Dove. Psalms 74:19. By the Jewish law the poor who could not afford a more costly sacrifice were permitted to bring two turtle-doves or two young pigeons. Leviticus 12:6-8. As the former are not domesticated and breed everywhere in prodigious numbers, this provision was a great boon to the needy. The outward circumstances of Christ's parents are thus indicated in Luke 2:24.

We have the authority of the Septuagint, the Targum, and of all the ancient interpreters, for understanding this of the turtle. Indeed, it is one of those evident instances in which the name of the bird is by onomatopaeia formed from its note or cry. The turtle is mentioned among migratory birds by Jeremiah 8:7 , and in this sense differs from the rest of its family, which are all stationary. The fact to which the prophet alludes is attested by Aristotle in these words: "The pigeon and the dove are always present, but the turtle only in summer; that bird is not seen in winter." And in another part of his work, he asserts that the dove remains, while the turtle migrates. Varro, and other ancient writers, make the like statement. Thus Solomon, Song of Solomon 2:12 , mentions the return of this bird as one of the indications of spring: "The voice of the turtle is heard in the land." See DOVE .
