16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers; she cares not that her labor was in vain,

Read Job 39:16 Using Other Translations

She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;
She deals cruelly with her young, as if they were not hers; though her labor be in vain, yet she has no fear,
She is harsh toward her young, as if they were not her own. She doesn’t care if they die.
