Knowest1 thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth?2 [or] canst thou mark4 when the hinds do calve?31
Canst thou number4 the months [that] they fulfil?17 or knowest1 thou the time when they bring forth?2
They bow4 themselves, they bring forth17 their young ones, they cast out17 their sorrows.
Their young ones are in good liking,4 they grow up4 with corn; they go forth,1 and return1 not unto them.
Who hath sent out14 the wild ass free? or who hath loosed14 the bands of the wild ass?
Whose house I have made1 the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.
He scorneth4 the multitude of the city, neither regardeth4 he the crying of the driver.6
The range of the mountains [is] his pasture, and he searcheth4 after every green thing.
Will the unicorn be willing4 to serve2 thee, or abide4 by thy crib?
Canst thou bind4 the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow17 the valleys after thee?
Wilt thou trust4 him, because his strength [is] great? or wilt thou leave4 thy labour to him?
Wilt thou believe55 him, that he will bring55 7725 4 home thy seed, and gather4 [it into] thy barn?
[Gavest thou] the goodly wings unto the peacocks?8 or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
Which leaveth4 her eggs in the earth, and warmeth17 them in dust,
And forgetteth4 that the foot may crush4 them, or that the wild beast may break4 them.
She is hardened52 against her young ones, as though [they were] not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;
Because God hath deprived52 her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted1 to her understanding.
What time she lifteth up55 herself on high, she scorneth4 the horse and his rider.6
Hast thou given4 the horse strength? hast thou clothed55 his neck with thunder?
Canst thou make him afraid55 as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils [is] terrible.
He paweth4 in the valley, and rejoiceth4 in [his] strength: he goeth on4 to meet2 the armed men.
He mocketh4 at fear, and is not affrighted;11 neither turneth he back4 from the sword.
The quiver rattleth4 against him, the glittering spear and the shield.
He swalloweth17 the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth55 he that [it is] the sound of the trumpet.
He saith4 among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth55 the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
Doth the hawk fly55 by thy wisdom, [and] stretch4 her wings toward the south?
Doth the eagle mount up55 at thy command, and make her nest on high?55
She dwelleth4 and abideth118 on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
From thence she seeketh1 the prey, [and] her eyes behold55 afar off.
Her young ones also suck up17 blood: and where the slain [are], there [is] she.
