39 “Do you know when the mountain goatsp give birth?
Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn?q
Do you know the time they give birth?r
their labor pains are ended.
they leave and do not return.
5 “Who let the wild donkeys go free?
Who untied its ropes?
6 I gave it the wastelandt as its home,
7 It laughsw at the commotion in the town;
it does not hear a driver’s shout.x
8 It ranges the hillsy for its pasture
and searches for any green thing.
Will it stay by your mangerb at night?
10 Can you hold it to the furrow with a harness?c
Will it till the valleys behind you?
11 Will you rely on it for its great strength?d
Will you leave your heavy work to it?
and bring it to your threshing floor?
though they cannot compare
with the wings and feathers of the stork.e
and lets them warm in the sand,
that some wild animal may trample them.f
16 She treats her young harshly,g as if they were not hers;
she cares not that her labor was in vain,
or give her a share of good sense.h
she laughsi at horse and rider.
19 “Do you give the horse its strengthj
or clothe its neck with a flowing mane?
20 Do you make it leap like a locust,k
21 It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength,n
and charges into the fray.o
22 It laughsp at fear, afraid of nothing;
it does not shy away from the sword.
23 The quiverq rattles against its side,
along with the flashing spearr and lance.
it cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.s
25 At the blast of the trumpett it snorts, ‘Aha!’
It catches the scent of battle from afar,
the shout of commanders and the battle cry.u
and spread its wings toward the south?v
and build its nest on high?w
a rocky cragx is its stronghold.
29 From there it looks for food;y
its eyes detect it from afar.
and where the slain are, there it is.”z
