Of the wild goats and hinds.
Job 39:1 Knowest thou the time when the wilde goates bring foorth yong? or doest thou marke when the hindes doe calue? Job 39:2 Canst thou nomber the moneths that they fulfill? or knowest thou the time when they bring foorth? Job 39:3 They bow them selues: they bruise their yong and cast out their sorowes. Job 39:4 Yet their yong waxe fatte, and growe vp with corne: they goe foorth and returne not vnto them.
Of the wild ass.
Job 39:5 Who hath set the wilde asse at libertie? or who hath loosed the bondes of the wilde asse? Job 39:6 It is I which haue made the wildernesse his house, and the salt places his dwellings. Job 39:7 He derideth the multitude of the citie: he heareth not the crie of the driuer. Job 39:8 He seeketh out the mountaine for his pasture, and searcheth after euery greene thing.
Job 39:9 Will the vnicorne serue thee? or will he tary by thy cribbe? Job 39:10 Canst thou binde the vnicorne with his band to labour in the furrowe? or will he plowe the valleyes after thee? Job 39:11 Wilt thou trust in him, because his stregth is great, and cast off thy labour vnto him? Job 39:12 Wilt thou beleeue him, that he will bring home thy seede, and gather it vnto thy barne?
The peacock, stork, and ostrich.
Job 39:13 Hast thou giuen the pleasant wings vnto the peacockes? or winges and feathers vnto the ostriche? Job 39:14 Which leaueth his egges in the earth, and maketh them hote in the dust, Job 39:15 And forgetteth that the foote might scatter the, or that the wild beast might breake the. Job 39:16 He sheweth himselfe cruell vnto his yong ones, as they were not his, and is without feare, as if he trauailed in vaine. Job 39:17 For God had depriued him of wisedom, and hath giuen him no part of vnderstanding. Job 39:18 When time is, he mounteth on hie: he mocketh the horse and his rider.
Job 39:19 Hast thou giuen the horse strength? or couered his necke with neying? Job 39:20 Hast thou made him afraid as the grashopper? his strong neying is fearefull. Job 39:21 He diggeth in the valley, and reioyceth in his strength: he goeth foorth to meete the harnest man. Job 39:22 He mocketh at feare, and is not afraid, and turneth not backe from the sworde, Job 39:23 Though the quiuer rattle against him, the glittering speare and the shield. Job 39:24 He swalloweth the ground for fearcenes and rage, and he beleeueth not that it is the noise of the trumpet. Job 39:25 He sayth among the trumpets, Ha, ha: hee smelleth the battell afarre off, and the noyse of the captaines, and the shouting.
Job 39:26 Shall the hauke flie by thy wisedome, stretching out his wings toward the South?
Job 39:27 Doeth the egle mount vp at thy commandement, or make his nest on hie? Job 39:28 Shee abideth and remaineth in the rocke, euen vpon the toppe of the rocke, and the tower. Job 39:29 From thence she spieth for meate, and her eyes beholde afarre off. Job 39:30 His young ones also sucke vp blood: and where the slaine are, there is she.
