1 “Do you know when the wild goats give birth?
Have you watched as deer are born in the wild?
Are you aware of the time of their delivery?
and deliver their offspring.
then leave home and never return.
Who untied its ropes?
its home is the wasteland.
and has no driver to shout at it.
where it searches for every blade of grass.
Will it spend the night in your stall?
Will it plow a field for you?
Can you leave and trust the ox to do your work?
and deliver it to your threshing floor?
but they are no match for the feathers of the stork.
letting them be warmed in the dust.
or a wild animal might destroy them.
as if they were not her own.
She doesn’t care if they die.
He has given her no understanding.
she passes the swiftest horse with its rider.
or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?
Its majestic snorting is terrifying!
when it charges out to battle.
It does not run from the sword.
and the spear and javelin flash.
and rushes forward into battle when the ram’s horn blows.
It senses the battle in the distance.
It quivers at the captain’s commands and the noise of battle.
and spread its wings toward the south?
to the heights to make its nest?
making its home on a distant, rocky crag.
keeping watch with piercing eyes.
Where there’s a carcass, there you’ll find it.”
