Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn? NKJV 2 Can you number the months that they fulfill? Or do you know the time when they bear young? NIV 2 Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth? NKJV 3 They bow down, They bring forth their young, They deliver their offspring. NIV 3 They crouch down and bring forth their young; their labor pains are ended. NKJV 4 Their young ones are healthy, They grow strong with grain; They depart and do not return to them.

NKJV 16 She treats her young harshly, as though they were not hers; Her labor is in vain, without concern, NIV 16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers; she cares not that her labor was in vain, NKJV 17 Because God deprived her of wisdom, And did not endow her with understanding.

NIV 22 He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. NKJV 23 The quiver rattles against him, The glittering spear and javelin. NIV 23 The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. NKJV 24 He devours the distance with fierceness and rage; Nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded.

He smells the battle from afar, The thunder of captains and shouting. NIV 25 At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, 'Aha!'

NIV 28 He dwells on a cliff and stays there at night; a rocky crag is his stronghold. NKJV 29 From there it spies out the prey; Its eyes observe from afar. NIV 29 From there he seeks out his food; his eyes detect it from afar. NKJV 30 Its young ones suck up blood; And where the slain are, there it is."
