The rooster crowed after Peter denied Jesus 3 times.
In Hebrew, the word “sechvi” translates to “rooster”. The word sechvi comes from the root word “sachab,” which means to give thanks, and is often used in prayer to God.
Roosters are naturally protective and possess a keen sense of sight. This trait helps them survive in their natural environment, where they could potentially be preyed upon by hawks, snakes and other predators.
