From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Glede, n.  A live coal. [Archaic]
    The cruel ire, red as any glede.   --Chaucer.
 

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Glede
    an Old English name for the common kite, mentioned only in Deut.
    14:13 (Heb. ra'ah), the Milvus ater or black kite. The Hebrew
    word does not occur in the parallel passage in Leviticus (11:14,
    da'ah, rendered "vulture;" in R.V., "kite"). It was an unclean
    bird. The Hebrew name is from a root meaning "to see," "to
    look," thus designating a bird with a keen sight. The bird
    intended is probably the buzzard, of which there are three
    species found in Palestine. (See VULTURE.)
