- "Do you know when the mountain goats bring forth? Do you observe the calving of the hinds?
- Can you number the months that they fulfil, and do you know the time when they bring forth,
- when they crouch, bring forth their offspring, and are delivered of their young?
- Their young ones become strong, they grow up in the open; they go forth, and do not return to them.
- "Who has let the wild ass go free? Who has loosed the bonds of the swift ass,
- to whom I have given the steppe for his home, and the salt land for his dwelling place?
- He scorns the tumult of the city; he hears not the shouts of the driver.
- He ranges the mountains as his pasture, and he searches after every green thing.
- "Is the wild ox willing to serve you? Will he spend the night at your crib?
- Can you bind him in the furrow with ropes, or will he harrow the valleys after you?
- Will you depend on him because his strength is great, and will you leave to him your labor?
- Do you have faith in him that he will return, and bring your grain to your threshing floor?
- "The wings of the ostrich wave proudly; but are they the pinions and plumage of love?
- For she leaves her eggs to the earth, and lets them be warmed on the ground,
- forgetting that a foot may crush them, and that the wild beast may trample them.
- She deals cruelly with her young, as if they were not hers; though her labor be in vain, yet she has no fear;
- because God has made her forget wisdom, and given her no share in understanding.
- When she rouses herself to flee, she laughs at the horse and his rider.
- "Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with strength?
- Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrible.
- He paws in the valley, and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons.
- He laughs at fear, and is not dismayed; he does not turn back from the sword.
- Upon him rattle the quiver, the flashing spear and the javelin.
- With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground; he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet.
- When the trumpet sounds, he says 'Aha!' He smells the battle from afar, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
- "Is it by your wisdom that the hawk soars, and spreads his wings toward the south?
- Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up and makes his nest on high?
- On the rock he dwells and makes his home in the fastness of the rocky crag.
- Thence he spies out the prey; his eyes behold it afar off.
- His young ones suck up blood; and where the slain are, there is he."
- And the LORD said to Job:
- "Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it."
- Then Job answered the LORD:
- "Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer thee? I lay my hand on my mouth.
- I have spoken once, and I will not answer; twice, but I will proceed no further."
- Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind:
- "Gird up your loins like a man; I will question you, and you declare to me.
- Will you even put me in the wrong? Will you condemn me that you may be justified?
- Have you an arm like God, and can you thunder with a voice like his?
- "Deck yourself with majesty and dignity; clothe yourself with glory and splendor.
- Pour forth the overflowings of your anger, and look on every one that is proud, and abase him.
- Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked where they stand.
- Hide them all in the dust together; bind their faces in the world below.
- Then will I also acknowledge to you, that your own right hand can give you victory.
- "Behold, Be'hemoth, which I made as I made you; he eats grass like an ox.
- Behold, his strength in his loins, and his power in the muscles of his belly.
- He makes his tail stiff like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together.
- His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like bars of iron.
- "He is the first of the works of God; let him who made him bring near his sword!
- For the mountains yield food for him where all the wild beasts play.
- Under the lotus plants he lies, in the covert of the reeds and in the marsh.
- For his shade the lotus trees cover him; the willows of the brook surround him.
- Behold, if the river is turbulent he is not frightened; he is confident though Jordan rushes against his mouth.
- Can one take him with hooks, or pierce his nose with a snare?
