Of the wild goats and hinds.
Job 39:1 Knowest thou the time when the wild goates of the rocke bring forth? [or] canst thou marke when the hindes doe calue? Job 39:2 Canst thou number the moneths [that] they fulfill? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth? Job 39:3 They bowe themselues, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrowes. Job 39:4 Their yong ones are in good liking, they grow vp with corne: they go forth, and returne not vnto them.
Of the wild ass.
Job 39:5 Who hath sent out the wild asse free? or who hath looosed the bands of the wild asse? Job 39:6 Whose house I haue made the wildernesse, and the barren lande his dwellings. Job 39:7 He scorneth the multitude of the citie, neither regardeth he the crying of the driuer. Job 39:8 The range of the mountaines [is] his pasture, and hee searcheth after euery greene thing.
Job 39:9 Will the Unicorne be willing to serue thee? or abide by thy cribbe? Job 39:10 Canst thou binde the Unicorne with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleyes after thee? Job 39:11 Wilt thou trust him because his strength is great? or wilt thou leaue thy labour to him? Job 39:12 Wilt thou beleeue him that hee will bring home thy seed? and gather it into thy barne?
The peacock, stork, and ostrich.
Job 39:13 [Gauest thou] the goodly wings vnto the peacocks, or wings and feathers vnto the Ostrich? Job 39:14 Which leaueth her egges in the earth, and warmeth them in dust, Job 39:15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wilde beast may breake them. Job 39:16 She is hardened against her yong ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vaine without feare. Job 39:17 Because God hath depriued her of wisedome, neither hath he imparted to her vnderstanding. Job 39:18 What time she lifteth vp her selfe on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
Job 39:19 Hast thou giuen the horse strength? hast thou clothed his necke with thunder? Job 39:20 Canst thou make him afraid as a grashopper? the glory of his nostrils [is] terrible. Job 39:21 He paweth in the valley, and reioyceth in [his] strength: hee goeth on to meet the armed men. Job 39:22 He mocketh at feare, and is not affrighted: neither turneth he backe from the sword. Job 39:23 The quiuer ratleth against him, the glittering speare and the shield. Job 39:24 He swalloweth the ground with fiercenesse and rage: neither beleeueth he that it [is] the sound of the trumpet. Job 39:25 Hee saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha: and he smelleth the battaile afarre off, the thunder of the captaines, and the shouting.
Job 39:26 Doeth the hawke flie by thy wisedome, [and] stretch her wings toward the South?
Job 39:27 Doeth the Eagle mount vp at thy commaund? and make her nest on high? Job 39:28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rocke, vpon the cragge of the rocke, and the strong place. Job 39:29 From thence she seeketh the pray, [and] her eyes behold a farre off. Job 39:30 Her yong ones also suck vp blood: and where the slaine [are], there [is] he.
