Job 39

39 Knowest thou the time when athe wild goats of the rock bring forth?

Or canst thou mark when bthe hinds do calve?

Canst thou number the months that they fulfil?

Or cknowest thou the time when they bring forth?

They dbow themselves, they bring forth their young ones,

They cast out their sorrows.

Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn;

They go forth, and return not unto them.

Who hath esent out the fwild ass free?

Or who hath egloosed the bands of the wild ass?

Whose house I have made hthe wilderness,

And the barren land his dwellings.

He scorneth the multitude of the city,

Neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.

The range of the mountains is his pasture,

And he searcheth after every green thing.

Will the iunicorn be willing to serve thee,

Or abide by thy kcrib?

10  Canst thou bind the iunicorn with his band in the furrow?

Or will he lharrow the valleys after thee?

11  Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great?

Or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

12  Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed,

And llgather it into thy barn?

13  Gavest thou the goodly mwings unto the peacocks?

Or ||mwings and ofeathers unto the ostrich?

14  Which leaveth her eggs in the earth,

And warmeth them pin dust,

15  And forgetteth that the foot may qcrush them,

Or that the wild beast may break them.

16  She is rhardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers:

sHer labour is in vain without fear;

17  Because God hath tdeprived her of uwisdom,

Neither hath he imparted to her uunderstanding.

18  What time she lifteth up herself on high,

She scorneth the horse and his rider.

19  Hast thou given the horse strength?

Hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?

20  Canst thou make him afraid as a xgrasshopper?

The glory of his ynostrils is terrible.

21  ||He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength:

zHe goeth on to meet the armed men.

22  He amocketh at fear, and is not affrighted;

Neither turneth he back from the sword.

23  The quiver rattleth against him,

The bglittering spear and the cshield.

24  He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage:

Neither believeth he that it is the sound of the dtrumpet.

25  He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha;

And he smelleth the battle afar off,

The thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

26  Doth the ehawk ffly by thy wisdom,

And stretch her wings toward the south?

27  Doth the eagle mount up at thy command,

And make her gnest on high?

28  She dwelleth and habideth on the rock,

Upon the icrag of the rock, and the hstrong place.

29  From thence she jseeketh the prey,

And her eyes behold afar off.

30  Her young ones also suck up blood:

And kwhere the slain are, there is she.
