39:1 You know the time when the wild goats of the rock bear? Do you watch when the deer calve?
39:2 Can you count the months that they fulfill? or know you the season when they give birth?

39:9 Will the wild ox be willing to work for you, or shelter by your crib?
39:10 Can you tie the wild ox with

39:11 Will you trust him, because his strength [is] great? or will you leave your labor to him?
39:12 Will you trust him, that he will bring
your seed home , and gather it to your threshing-floor?
39:13 You gave  the goodly wings to the ostriches? or wings and feathers to the stork?
39:14 Which leaves her eggs on the earth, and warms them in dust,
39:15 And forgets that the foot may crush them, or that the beast of the field may trample on them.

39:19 Have you given the horse strength? have you clothed its neck with a waving mane?
39:20 Can you make him afraid like a grasshopper? the splendor of his snort is terrifying.

39:22 He laughs at fear, and is not afraid; he doesn’t retreat from the sword.
39:23 The quiver rattles on him, the flashing spear and the sword.

39:29 From there she searches for food, and her eyes see from a distance.
