Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn? NCV 2 Do you count the months until they give birth and know the right time for them to give birth? NIV 2 Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth? NCV 3 They lie down, their young are born, and then the pain of giving birth is over. NIV 3 They crouch down and bring forth their young; their labor pains are ended. NCV 4 Their young ones grow big and strong in the wild country. Then they leave their homes and do not return. NIV 4 Their young thrive and grow strong in the wilds; they leave and do not return. NCV 5 "Who let the wild donkey go free? Who untied its ropes? NIV 5 "Who let the wild donkey go free? Who untied his ropes? NCV 6 I am the one who gave the donkey the desert as its home; I gave it the desert lands as a place to live. NIV 6 I gave him the wasteland as his home, the salt flats as his habitat. NCV 7 The wild donkey laughs at the confusion in the city, and it does not hear the drivers shout.

NIV 14 She lays her eggs on the ground and lets them warm in the sand, NCV 15 It does not stop to think that a foot might step on them and crush them; it does not care that some animal might walk on them. NIV 15 unmindful that a foot may crush them, that some wild animal may trample them. NCV 16 The ostrich is cruel to its young, as if they were not even its own. It does not care that its work is for nothing, NIV 16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers; she cares not that her labor was in vain, NCV 17 because God did not give the ostrich wisdom; God did not give it a share of good sense. NIV 17 for God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense. NCV 18 But when the ostrich gets up to run, it is so fast that it laughs at the horse and its rider. NIV 18 Yet when she spreads her feathers to run, she laughs at horse and rider. NCV 19 "Job, are you the one who gives the horse its strength or puts a flowing mane on its neck?

NIV 21 He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray. NCV 22 It laughs at fear and is afraid of nothing; it does not run away from the sword. NIV 22 He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. NCV 23 The bag of arrows rattles against the horse's side, along with the flashing spears and swords. NIV 23 The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. NCV 24 With great excitement, the horse races over the ground; and it cannot stand still when it hears the trumpet.

It smells the battle from far away; it hears the shouts of commanders and the battle cry. 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. NCV 26 "Is it through your wisdom that the hawk flies and spreads its wings toward the south? NIV 26 "Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread his wings toward the south? NCV 27 Are you the one that commands the eagle to fly and build its nest so high? NIV 27 Does the eagle soar at your command and build his nest on high? NCV 28 It lives on a high cliff and stays there at night; the rocky peak is its protected place. NIV 28 He dwells on a cliff and stays there at night; a rocky crag is his stronghold. NCV 29 From there it looks for its food; its eyes can see it from far away. NIV 29 From there he seeks out his food; his eyes detect it from afar. NCV 30 Its young eat blood, and where there is something dead, the eagle is there." NIV 30 His young ones feast on blood, and where the slain are, there is he."
