Chapter 39

1

\38:39\Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,

2

\38:40\When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?

3

\38:41\Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry to God, they wander for want of food.

4

\39:1\Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?

5

\39:2\Canst thou number the months that they fulfill? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?

6

\39:3\They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.

7

\39:4\Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not to them.

8

\39:5\Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

9

\39:6\Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

10

\39:7\He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.

11

\39:8\The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.

12

\39:9\Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

13

\39:10\Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

14

\39:11\Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labor to him?

15

\39:12\Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?

16

\39:13\Gavest thou the goodly wings to the peacocks? or wings and feathers to the ostrich!

17

\39:14\Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in the dust,

18

\39:15\And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

19

\39:16\She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labor is in vain without fear;

20

\39:17\Because God hath withheld wisdom from her, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

21

\39:18\When she lifteth herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.

22

\39:19\Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?

23

\39:20\Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.

24

\39:21\He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.

25

\39:22\He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

26

\39:23\The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.

27

\39:24\He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.

28

\39:25\He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

29

\39:26\Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings towards the south?

30

\39:27\Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

31

\39:28\She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.

32

\39:29\From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

33

\39:30\Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

34

\40:1\Moreover, the LORD answered Job, and said,

35

\40:2\Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.

36

\40:3\Then Job answered the LORD, and said,

37

\40:4\Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay my hand upon my mouth.

38

\40:5\Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yes, twice; but I will proceed no further.
