Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:1 -
Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth?
Or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:2 -
Canst thou number the months that they fulfil?
Or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:3 -
They bow themselves, they bring forth their young,
They cast out their pains.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:4 -
Their young ones become strong, they grow up in the open field;
They go forth, and return not again.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:5 -
Who hath sent out the wild ass free?
Or who hath loosed the bonds of the swift ass,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:6 -
Whose home I have made the wilderness,
And the salt land his dwelling-place?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:7 -
He scorneth the tumult of the city,
Neither heareth he the shoutings of the driver.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:8 -
The range of the mountains is his pasture,
And he searcheth after every green thing.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:9 -
Will the wild-ox be content to serve thee?
Or will he abide by thy crib?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:10 -

Or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:11 -

Or wilt thou leave to him thy labor?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:12 -
Wilt thou confide in him, that he will bring home thy seed,
And gather the grain of thy threshing-floor?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:13 -
The wings of the ostrich wave proudly;
But are they the pinions and plumage of love?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:14 -
For she leaveth her eggs on the earth,
And warmeth them in the dust,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:15 -
And forgetteth that the foot may crush them,
Or that the wild beast may trample them.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:16 -
She dealeth hardly with her young ones, as if they were not hers:
Though her labor be in vain, she is without fear;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:17 -
Because God hath deprived her of wisdom,
Neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:18 -
What time she lifteth up herself on high,
She scorneth the horse and his rider.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:19 -
Hast thou given the horse his might?
Hast thou clothed his neck with the quivering mane?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:20 -
Hast thou made him to leap as a locust?
The glory of his snorting is terrible.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:21 -
He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength:
He goeth out to meet the armed men.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:22 -
He mocketh at fear, and is not dismayed;
Neither turneth he back from the sword.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:23 -
The quiver rattleth against him,
The flashing spear and the javelin.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:24 -
He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage;
Neither believeth he that it is the voice of the trumpet.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:25 -
As oft as the trumpet soundeth he saith, Aha!
And he smelleth the battle afar off,
The thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:26 -
Is it by thy wisdom that the hawk soareth,
And stretcheth her wings toward the south?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:27 -
Is it at thy command that the eagle mounteth up,
And maketh her nest on high?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:28 -
On the cliff she dwelleth, and maketh her home,
Upon the point of the cliff, and the stronghold.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:29 -
From thence she spieth out the prey;
Her eyes behold it afar off.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 39:30 -
Her young ones also suck up blood:
And where the slain are, there is she.
