Chapter 39 16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.19 Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?20 Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.21 He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.22 He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.23 The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.24 He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.25 He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.26 Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.
Chapter 40 1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.3 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,4 Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
