Job 39

39:1 Hast thou known the time of The bearing of the wild goats of the rock The bringing forth of hinds thou dost mark! 39:2 Thou dost number the months they fulfil And thou hast known the time of their bringing forth! 39:3 They bow down, Their young ones they bring forth safely, Their pangs they cast forth. 39:4 Safe are their young ones, They grow up in the field, they have gone out, And have not returned to them. 39:5 Who hath sent forth the wild ass free Yea, the bands of the wild ass who opened 39:6 Whose house I have made the wilderness, And his dwellings the barren land, 39:7 He doth laugh at the multitude of a city, The cries of an exactor he heareth not. 39:8 The range of mountains [is] his pasture, And after every green thing he seeketh. 39:9 Is a Reem willing to serve thee Doth he lodge by thy crib 39:10 Dost thou bind a Reem in a furrow [with] his thick band Doth he harrow valleys after thee 39:11 Dost thou trust in him because great [is] his power And dost thou leave unto him thy labour 39:12 Dost thou trust in him That he doth bring back thy seed And [to] thy threshing-floor doth gather [it]   39:13 The wing of the rattling ones exulteth, Whether the pinion of the ostrich or hawk. 39:14 For she leaveth on the earth her eggs, And on the dust she doth warm them, 39:15 And she forgetteth that a foot may press it, And a beast of the field tread it down. 39:16 Her young ones it hath hardened without her, In vain [is] her labour without fear. 39:17 For God hath caused her to forget wisdom, And He hath not given a portion To her in understanding: 39:18 At the time on high she lifteth herself up, She laugheth at the horse and at his rider.  39:19 Dost thou give to the horse might Dost thou clothe his neck [with] a mane 39:20 Dost thou cause him to rush as a locust The majesty of his snorting [is] terrible. 39:21 They dig in a valley, and he rejoiceth in power, He goeth forth to meet the armour. 39:22 He laugheth at fear, and is not affrighted, And he turneth not back from the face of the sword. 39:23 Against him rattle doth quiver, The flame of a spear, and a halbert. 39:24 With trembling and rage he swalloweth the ground, And remaineth not stedfast Because of the sound of a trumpet. 39:25 Among the trumpets he saith, Aha, And from afar he doth smell battle, Roaring of princes and shouting.  39:26 By thine understanding flieth a hawk Spreadeth he his wings to the south 39:27 At thy command goeth an eagle up high Or lifteth he up his nest 39:28 A rock he doth inhabit, Yea, he lodgeth on the tooth of a rock, and fortress. 39:29 From thence he hath sought food, To a far off place his eyes look attentively, 39:30 And his brood gulp up blood, And where the pierced [are] --there [is] he!
