(Knowest thou the time of birth for the wild mountain goats, or hast thou seen the deer bringing forth their calves?) NIV 1 "Do you know when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn? WYC 2 Hast thou numbered the months of their conceiving, and hast thou known the time of their calving? NIV 2 Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth? WYC 3 They be bowed down to [the] calf, and so calve; and they send out then roarings (and then they send out their roarings). NIV 3 They crouch down and bring forth their young; their labor pains are ended.

NIV 7 He laughs at the commotion in the town; he does not hear a driver's shout. WYC 8 He looketh about the hills of his pasture, and he seeketh (after) all green things. NIV 8 He ranges the hills for his pasture and searches for any green thing. WYC 9 Whether an unicorn shall desire to serve thee, either shall dwell at thy cratch?

WYC 10 Whether thou shalt bind the unicorn with thy chain, for to ear thy land, either shall he break the clots of the valleys after thee? (Shalt thou bind the wild ox with thy chain, to plow thy land, or shall he break up 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? WYC 11 Whether thou shalt have trust in his great strength, and shalt thou leave to him thy travails? (Shalt thou have trust in his great strength, and shalt thou leave thy work for him to do?) NIV 11 Will you rely on him for his great strength? Will you leave your heavy work to him? WYC 12 Whether thou shalt believe to him (Shalt thou believe him), that he shall yield seed to thee, and shall gather (it) together (for) thy cornfloor?

WYC 13 The feather of an ostrich is like the feathers of a gyrfalcon, and of an hawk; NIV 13 "The wings of the ostrich flap joyfully, but they cannot compare with the pinions and feathers of the stork.

(For God hath deprived him of wisdom, and he hath not given him understanding.) NIV 17 for God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense.

NIV 21 He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray. WYC 22 He despiseth fearedfulness, and he giveth not stead to [the] sword. NIV 22 He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. WYC 23 An arrow case shall sound upon him; a spear and a shield shall shine.

WYC 25 When he heareth a clarion, he saith, Joy! he smelleth (the) battle afar (off); the exciting of dukes, and the yelling of the host (the orders of the leaders, and the yelling 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.
