Of the wild goats and hinds.
Job 39:1 Knowest thou the time whe the wylde goates bring foorth their young among the stonye rockes? or layest thou wayte when the hindes vse to calue? Job 39:2 Canst thou number the monethes that they go with young? or knowest thou the time when they bring foorth? Job 39:3 They lye downe, they calue their young ones, and they are deliuered of their trauaile and paine: Job 39:4 Yet their young ones grow vp, and waxe fatte through good feeding with corne: They go foorth, and returne not againe vnto them.
Of the wild ass.
Job 39:5 Who letteth the wylde asse to go free? or who looseth the bondes of the wylde mule? Job 39:6 Euen I which haue geuen the wyldernesse to be their house, and the vntilled land to be their dwelling. Job 39:7 They force not for the multitude of people in the citie, neither regarde the crying of the driuer: Job 39:8 But seeke their pasture about the mountaines, and folowe the greene grasse.
Job 39:9 Wyll the vnicorne do thee seruice, or abide still by thy cribbe? Job 39:10 Canst thou binde the yoke about the vnicorne in the forowe, to make him plowe after thee in the valleyes? Job 39:11 Mayst thou trust him because he is strong, or commit thy labour vnto him? Job 39:12 Mayst thou beleue him that he wyll bring home thy corne, or carry any thing vnto thy barne?
The peacock, stork, and ostrich.
Job 39:13 Gauest thou the faire winges vnto the pecockes, or winges and fethers vnto the Estriche? Job 39:14 For she leaueth her egges in the earth, and heateth them in the dust. Job 39:15 She remembreth not that they might be troden with feete, or broken with some wilde beaste. Job 39:16 So harde is she vnto her young ones as though they were not hers, and laboureth in vaine without any feare. Job 39:17 And that because God hath taken wysdome from her, & hath not geuen her vnderstanding. Job 39:18 When her time is that she fleeth vp on hie, she careth neither for the horse nor the ryder.
Job 39:19 Hast thou geue the horse his strength, or learned him to ney coragiously? Job 39:20 Canst thou make him afrayde as a grashopper? where as the stoute neying that he maketh is fearefull. Job 39:21 He breaketh the grounde with the hooffes of his feete, he reioyceth cherefully in his strength, and runneth to meete the harnest men. Job 39:22 He layeth aside all feare, his stomacke is not abated, neither starteth he backe for any sworde. Job 39:23 Though the quiuers rattle vpon him, though the speare and shielde glister: Job 39:24 Yet rusheth he in fiercely beating the grounde, he thinketh it not the noyse of the trumpettes: Job 39:25 But when the trumpettes make most noyse, he saith, tushe, for he smelleth the battaile a farre of, the noyse of the captaines and the shouting.
Job 39:26 Commeth it through thy wysdome that the Goshauke flieth toward the south?
Job 39:27 Doth the Egle mount vp, and make his nest on hye at thy comaundement? Job 39:28 He abydeth in stony rockes, and dwelleth vpon the hye toppes of moutaines: Job 39:29 From whence he seeketh his praye, and loketh farre about with his eyes. Job 39:30 His young ones also sucke vp blood: and where any dead body lyeth, there is he.
