Job 39

RHE 1 Knowest thou the time when the wild goats bring forth among the rocks, or hast thou observed the hinds when they fawn? NIV 1 "Do you know when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn? RHE 2 Hast thou numbered the months of their conceiving, or knowest thou the time when they bring forth? NIV 2 Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth? RHE 3 They bow themselves to bring forth young, and they cast them, and send forth roarings. NIV 3 They crouch down and bring forth their young; their labor pains are ended. RHE 4 Their young are weaned and go to feed: they go forth, and return not to them. NIV 4 Their young thrive and grow strong in the wilds; they leave and do not return. RHE 5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free, and who hath loosed his bonds? NIV 5 "Who let the wild donkey go free? Who untied his ropes? RHE 6 To whom I have given a house in the wilderness, and his dwellings in the barren land. NIV 6 I gave him the wasteland as his home, the salt flats as his habitat. RHE 7 He scorneth the multitude of the city, he heareth not the cry of the driver. NIV 7 He laughs at the commotion in the town; he does not hear a driver's shout. RHE 8 He looketh round about the mountains of his pasture, and seeketh for every green thing, NIV 8 He ranges the hills for his pasture and searches for any green thing. RHE 9 Shall the rhinoceros be willing to serve thee, or will he stay at thy crib? NIV 9 "Will the wild ox consent to serve you? Will he stay by your manger at night? RHE 10 Canst thou bind the rhinoceros with thy thong to plough, or will he break the clods of the valleys after thee? NIV 10 Can you hold him to the furrow with a harness? Will he till the valleys behind you? RHE 11 Wilt thou have confidence in his great strength, and leave thy labours to him? NIV 11 Will you rely on him for his great strength? Will you leave your heavy work to him? RHE 12 Wilt thou trust him that he will render thee the seed, and gather it into thy barnfloor? NIV 12 Can you trust him to bring in your grain and gather it to your threshing floor? RHE 13 The wing of the ostrich is like the wings of the heron, and of the hawk. NIV 13 "The wings of the ostrich flap joyfully, but they cannot compare with the pinions and feathers of the stork. RHE 14 When she leaveth her eggs on the earth, thou perhaps wilt warm them in the dust. NIV 14 She lays her eggs on the ground and lets them warm in the sand, RHE 15 She forgetteth that the foot may tread upon them, or that the beasts of the field may break them. NIV 15 unmindful that a foot may crush them, that some wild animal may trample them. RHE 16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers, she hath laboured in vain, no fear constraining her. NIV 16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers; she cares not that her labor was in vain, RHE 17 For God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he given her understanding. NIV 17 for God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense. RHE 18 When time shall be, she setteth up her wings on high: she scorneth the horse and his rider. NIV 18 Yet when she spreads her feathers to run, she laughs at horse and rider. RHE 19 Wilt thou give strength to the horse or clothe his neck with neighing? NIV 19 "Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? RHE 20 Wilt thou lift him up like the locusts? the glory of his nostrils is terror. NIV 20 Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? RHE 21 He breaketh up the earth with his hoof, he pranceth boldly, he goeth forward to meet armed men. NIV 21 He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray. RHE 22 He despiseth fear, he turneth not his back to the sword. NIV 22 He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. RHE 23 Above him shall the quiver rattle, the spear and shield shall glitter. NIV 23 The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. RHE 24 Chasing and raging he swalloweth the ground, neither doth he make account when the noise of the trumpet soundeth. NIV 24 In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds. RHE 25 When he heareth the trumpet he saith: Ha, ha: he smelleth the battle afar off, the encouraging of the captains, and the shouting of the army. 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. RHE 26 Doth the hawk wax feathered by thy wisdom, spreading her wings to the south? NIV 26 "Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread his wings toward the south? RHE 27 Will the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest in high places? NIV 27 Does the eagle soar at your command and build his nest on high? RHE 28 She abideth among the rocks, and dwelleth among cragged flints, and stony hills, where there is no access. NIV 28 He dwells on a cliff and stays there at night; a rocky crag is his stronghold. RHE 29 From thence she looketh for the prey, and her eyes behold afar off. NIV 29 From there he seeks out his food; his eyes detect it from afar. RHE 30 Her young ones shall suck up blood: and wheresoever the carcass shall be, she is immediately there. NIV 30 His young ones feast on blood, and where the slain are, there is he."
