Job 39:5 who letteth the wilde asse go fre, or who lowseth the bodes of the Moole? Job 39:6 Vnto who I haue geuen the wyldernes to be their house, & the vntilled londe to be their dwellinge place.

Job 39:16 So harde is he vnto his yong ones, as though they were not his, and laboureth in vayne without eny feare. Job 39:17 And that because God hath taken wisdome from him, & hath not geuen him vnderstondinge. Job 39:18 When his tyme is, he flyeth vp an hye, and careth nether for horse ner man.

Job 39:22 He layeth asyde all feare, his stomack is not abated, nether starteth he a back for eny swerde. Job 39:23 Though the quyuers rattle vpon him, though the speare and shilde glistre: Job 39:24 yet russheth he in fearsly, and beateth vpon the grounde. He feareth not the noyse of the trompettes, Job 39:25 but as soone as he heareth the shawmes blowe, tush (sayeth he) for he smelleth the batell afarre of, ye noyse, the captaynes and the shoutinge.

Job 39:27 Doth the Aegle mounte vp & make his nest on hye at thy commaundement? Job 39:28 He abydeth in the stony rockes, ad vpon the hye toppes of harde mountaynes, where no man can come.
