Job 39

GNT 1 Do you know when mountain goats are born? Have you watched wild deer give birth? NIV 1 "Do you know when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn? GNT 2 Do you know how long they carry their young? Do you know the time for their birth? NIV 2 Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth? GNT 3 Do you know when they will crouch down and bring their young into the world? NIV 3 They crouch down and bring forth their young; their labor pains are ended. GNT 4 In the wilds their young grow strong; they go away and don't come back. NIV 4 Their young thrive and grow strong in the wilds; they leave and do not return. GNT 5 Who gave the wild donkeys their freedom? Who turned them loose and let them roam? NIV 5 "Who let the wild donkey go free? Who untied his ropes? GNT 6 I gave them the desert to be their home, and let them live on the salt plains. NIV 6 I gave him the wasteland as his home, the salt flats as his habitat. GNT 7 They keep far away from the noisy cities, and no one can tame them and make them work. NIV 7 He laughs at the commotion in the town; he does not hear a driver's shout. GNT 8 The mountains are the pastures where they feed, where they search for anything green to eat. NIV 8 He ranges the hills for his pasture and searches for any green thing. GNT 9 Will a wild ox work for you? Is he willing to spend the night in your stable? NIV 9 "Will the wild ox consent to serve you? Will he stay by your manger at night? GNT 10 Can you hold one with a rope and make him plow? Or make him pull a harrow in your fields? NIV 10 Can you hold him to the furrow with a harness? Will he till the valleys behind you? GNT 11 Can you rely on his great strength and expect him to do your heavy work? NIV 11 Will you rely on him for his great strength? Will you leave your heavy work to him? GNT 12 Do you expect him to bring in your harvest and gather the grain from your threshing place? NIV 12 Can you trust him to bring in your grain and gather it to your threshing floor? GNT 13 How fast the wings of an ostrich beat! But no ostrich can fly like a stork. NIV 13 "The wings of the ostrich flap joyfully, but they cannot compare with the pinions and feathers of the stork. GNT 14 The ostrich leaves her eggs on the ground for the heat in the soil to warm them. NIV 14 She lays her eggs on the ground and lets them warm in the sand, GNT 15 She is unaware that a foot may crush them or a wild animal break them. NIV 15 unmindful that a foot may crush them, that some wild animal may trample them. GNT 16 She acts as if the eggs were not hers, and is unconcerned that her efforts were wasted. NIV 16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers; she cares not that her labor was in vain, GNT 17 It was I who made her foolish and did not give her wisdom. NIV 17 for God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense. GNT 18 But when she begins to run, she can laugh at any horse and rider. NIV 18 Yet when she spreads her feathers to run, she laughs at horse and rider. GNT 19 Was it you, Job, who made horses so strong and gave them their flowing manes? NIV 19 "Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? GNT 20 Did you make them leap like locusts and frighten people with their snorting? NIV 20 Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? GNT 21 They eagerly paw the ground in the valley; they rush into battle with all their strength. NIV 21 He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray. GNT 22 They do not know the meaning of fear, and no sword can turn them back. NIV 22 He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. GNT 23 The weapons which their riders carry rattle and flash in the sun. NIV 23 The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. GNT 24 Trembling with excitement, the horses race ahead; when the trumpet blows, they can't stand still. NIV 24 In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds. GNT 25 At each blast of the trumpet they snort; they can smell a battle before they get near, and they hear the officers shouting commands. NIV 25 At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, 'Aha!' He catches the scent of battle from afar, the shout of commanders and the battle cry. GNT 26 Does a hawk learn from you how to fly when it spreads its wings toward the south? NIV 26 "Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread his wings toward the south? GNT 27 Does an eagle wait for your command to build its nest high in the mountains? NIV 27 Does the eagle soar at your command and build his nest on high? GNT 28 It makes its home on the highest rocks and makes the sharp peaks its fortress. NIV 28 He dwells on a cliff and stays there at night; a rocky crag is his stronghold. GNT 29 From there it watches near and far for something to kill and eat. NIV 29 From there he seeks out his food; his eyes detect it from afar. GNT 30 Around dead bodies the eagles gather, and the young eagles drink the blood. NIV 30 His young ones feast on blood, and where the slain are, there is he."
