Job 39 (WEBP)

[1] “Do you know the time when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bears fawns?
[2] Can you count the months that they fulfill? Or do you know the time when they give birth?
[3] They bow themselves. They bear their young. They end their labor pains.
[4] Their young ones become strong. They grow up in the open field. They go out, and don’t return again.
[5] “Who has set the wild donkey free? Or who has loosened the bonds of the swift donkey,
[6] whose home I have made the wilderness, and the salt land his dwelling place?
[7] He scorns the tumult of the city, neither does he hear the shouting of the driver.
[8] The range of the mountains is his pasture. He searches after every green thing.
[9] “Will the wild ox be content to serve you? Or will he stay by your feeding trough?
[10] Can you hold the wild ox in the furrow with his harness? Or will he till the valleys after you?
[11] Will you trust him, because his strength is great? Or will you leave to him your labor?
[12] Will you confide in him, that he will bring home your seed, and gather the grain of your threshing floor?
[13] “The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, but are they the feathers and plumage of love?
[14] For she leaves her eggs on the earth, warms them in the dust,
[15] and forgets that the foot may crush them, or that the wild animal may trample them.
[16] She deals harshly with her young ones, as if they were not hers. Though her labor is in vain, she is without fear,
[17] because God has deprived her of wisdom, neither has he imparted to her understanding.
[18] When she lifts up herself on high, she scorns the horse and his rider.
[19] “Have you given the horse might? Have you clothed his neck with a quivering mane?
[20] Have you made him to leap as a locust? The glory of his snorting is awesome.
[21] He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength. He goes out to meet the armed men.
[22] He mocks at fear, and is not dismayed, neither does he turn back from the sword.
[23] The quiver rattles against him, the flashing spear and the javelin.
[24] He eats up the ground with fierceness and rage, neither does he stand still at the sound of the trumpet.
[25] As often as the trumpet sounds he snorts, ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
[26] “Is it by your wisdom that the hawk soars, and stretches her wings toward the south?
[27] Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up, and makes his nest on high?
[28] On the cliff he dwells and makes his home, on the point of the cliff and the stronghold.
[29] From there he spies out the prey. His eyes see it afar off.
[30] His young ones also suck up blood. Where the slain are, there he is.”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 39 (KJVS)

[1] Knowest H3045 (8804) thou the time H6256 when the wild goats H3277 of the rock H5553 bring forth H3205 (8800)? [or] canst thou mark H8104 (8799) when the hinds H355 do calve H2342 (8790)?
[2] Canst thou number H5608 (8799) the months H3391 [that] they fulfil H4390 (8762)? or knowest H3045 (8804) thou the time H6256 when they bring forth H3205 (8800)?
[3] They bow H3766 (8799) themselves, they bring forth H6398 (8762) their young ones H3206, they cast out H7971 (8762) their sorrows H2256.
[4] Their young ones H1121 are in good liking H2492 (8799), they grow up H7235 (8799) with corn H1250; they go forth H3318 (8804), and return H7725 (8804) not unto them.
[5] Who hath sent out H7971 (8765) the wild ass H6501 free H2670? or who hath loosed H6605 (8765) the bands H4147 of the wild ass H6171?
[6] Whose house H1004 I have made H7760 (8804) the wilderness H6160, and the barren H4420 land his dwellings H4908.
[7] He scorneth H7832 (8799) the multitude H1995 of the city H7151, neither regardeth H8085 (8799) he the crying H8663 of the driver H5065 (8802).
[8] The range H3491 of the mountains H2022 [is] his pasture H4829, and he searcheth H1875 (8799) after H310 every green thing H3387.
[9] Will the unicorn H7214 be willing H14 (8799) to serve H5647 (8800) thee, or abide H3885 (8799) by thy crib H18?
[10] Canst thou bind H7194 (8799) the unicorn H7214 with his band H5688 in the furrow H8525? or will he harrow H7702 (8762) the valleys H6010 after H310 thee?
[11] Wilt thou trust H982 (8799) him, because his strength H3581 [is] great H7227? or wilt thou leave H5800 (8799) thy labour H3018 to him?
[12] Wilt thou believe H539 (8686) him, that he will bring home H7725 (8686) (8675) H7725 (8799) thy seed H2233, and gather H622 (8799) [it into] thy barn H1637?
[13] [Gavest thou] the goodly H7443 wings H3671 unto the peacocks H5965 (8738)? or wings H84 and feathers H2624 unto the ostrich H5133?
[14] Which leaveth H5800 (8799) her eggs H1000 in the earth H776, and warmeth H2552 (8762) them in dust H6083,
[15] And forgetteth H7911 (8799) that the foot H7272 may crush H2115 (8799) them, or that the wild H7704 beast H2416 may break H1758 (8799) them.
[16] She is hardened H7188 (8689) against her young ones H1121, as though [they were] not H3808 hers: her labour H3018 is in vain H7385 without fear H6343;
[17] Because God H433 hath deprived H5382 (8689) her of wisdom H2451, neither hath he imparted H2505 (8804) to her understanding H998.
[18] What time H6256 she lifteth up H4754 (8686) herself on high H4791, she scorneth H7832 (8799) the horse H5483 and his rider H7392 (8802).
[19] Hast thou given H5414 (8799) the horse H5483 strength H1369? hast thou clothed H3847 (8686) his neck H6677 with thunder H7483?
[20] Canst thou make him afraid H7493 (8686) as a grasshopper H697? the glory H1935 of his nostrils H5170 [is] terrible H367.
[21] He paweth H2658 (8799) in the valley H6010, and rejoiceth H7797 (8799) in [his] strength H3581: he goeth on H3318 (8799) to meet H7125 (8800) the armed men H5402.
[22] He mocketh H7832 (8799) at fear H6343, and is not affrighted H2865 (8735); neither turneth he back H7725 (8799) from H6440 the sword H2719.
[23] The quiver H827 rattleth H7439 (8799) against him, the glittering H3851 spear H2595 and the shield H3591.
[24] He swalloweth H1572 (8762) the ground H776 with fierceness H7494 and rage H7267: neither believeth H539 (8686) he that [it is] the sound H6963 of the trumpet H7782.
[25] He saith H559 (8799) among H1767 the trumpets H7782, Ha H1889, ha H1889; and he smelleth H7306 (8686) the battle H4421 afar off H7350, the thunder H7482 of the captains H8269, and the shouting H8643.
[26] Doth the hawk H5322 fly H82 (8686) by thy wisdom H998, [and] stretch H6566 (8799) her wings H3671 toward the south H8486?
[27] Doth the eagle H5404 mount up H1361 (8686) at thy command H6310, and make H7311 her nest H7064 on high H7311 (8686)?
[28] She dwelleth H7931 (8799) and abideth H3885 (8698) on the rock H5553, upon the crag H8127 of the rock H5553, and the strong place H4686.
[29] From thence she seeketh H2658 (8804) the prey H400, [and] her eyes H5869 behold H5027 (8686) afar off H7350.
[30] Her young ones H667 also suck up H5966 (8762) blood H1818: and where the slain H2491 [are], there [is] she H1931.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 39 (YLT)

[1] Hast thou known the time of The bearing of the wild goats of the rock? The bringing forth of hinds thou dost mark!
[2] Thou dost number the months they fulfil? And thou hast known the time of their bringing forth!
[3] They bow down, Their young ones they bring forth safely, Their pangs they cast forth.
[4] Safe are their young ones, They grow up in the field, they have gone out, And have not returned to them.
[5] Who hath sent forth the wild ass free? Yea, the bands of the wild ass who opened?
[6] Whose house I have made the wilderness, And his dwellings the barren land,
[7] He doth laugh at the multitude of a city, The cries of an exactor he heareth not.
[8] The range of mountains is his pasture, And after every green thing he seeketh.
[9] Is a Reem willing to serve thee? Doth he lodge by thy crib?
[10] Dost thou bind a Reem in a furrow with his thick band? Doth he harrow valleys after thee?
[11] Dost thou trust in him because great is his power? And dost thou leave unto him thy labour?
[12] Dost thou trust in him That he doth bring back thy seed? And to thy threshing-floor doth gather it?
[13] The wing of the rattling ones exulteth, Whether the pinion of the ostrich or hawk.
[14] For she leaveth on the earth her eggs, And on the dust she doth warm them,
[15] And she forgetteth that a foot may press it, And a beast of the field tread it down.
[16] Her young ones it hath hardened without her, In vain is her labour without fear.
[17] For God hath caused her to forget wisdom, And He hath not given a portion To her in understanding:
[18] At the time on high she lifteth herself up, She laugheth at the horse and at his rider.
[19] Dost thou give to the horse might? Dost thou clothe his neck with a mane?
[20] Dost thou cause him to rush as a locust? The majesty of his snorting is terrible.
[21] They dig in a valley, and he rejoiceth in power, He goeth forth to meet the armour.
[22] He laugheth at fear, and is not affrighted, And he turneth not back from the face of the sword.
[23] Against him rattle doth quiver, The flame of a spear, and a halbert.
[24] With trembling and rage he swalloweth the ground, And remaineth not stedfast Because of the sound of a trumpet.
[25] Among the trumpets he saith, Aha, And from afar he doth smell battle, Roaring of princes and shouting.
[26] By thine understanding flieth a hawk? Spreadeth he his wings to the south?
[27] At thy command goeth an eagle up high? Or lifteth he up his nest?
[28] A rock he doth inhabit, Yea, he lodgeth on the tooth of a rock, and fortress.
[29] From thence he hath sought food, To a far off place his eyes look attentively,
[30] And his brood gulp up blood, And where the pierced are-there is he!
