King James Version

Job 39

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

Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?

They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.

Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.

Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.

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

Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

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

11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

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

13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

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

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

16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her's: 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.

約伯記 39

1「你知道野山羊何時生產嗎?
你看過母鹿產仔嗎?
你能算出牠們懷胎的月數嗎?
你知道牠們分娩的日期嗎?
牠們幾時屈身產仔,
結束分娩之痛?
幼仔健壯,在荒野長大,
離群而去,不再回來。

「誰讓野驢逍遙自在?
誰解開了牠的韁繩?
我使牠以曠野為家,
以鹽地作居所。
牠嗤笑城邑的喧鬧,
不聽趕牲口的吆喝。
牠以群山作草場,
尋找青翠之物。

「野牛豈肯為你效勞,
在你的槽旁過夜?
10 你豈能用韁繩把野牛牽到犁溝?
牠豈肯跟著你在山谷耕地?
11 你豈能倚靠牠的大力,
把你的重活交給牠?
12 豈能靠牠運回糧食,
替你堆聚到麥場?

13 「鴕鳥歡然拍動翅膀,
牠豈有白鸛的翎羽?
14 牠將蛋產在地上,
使蛋得到沙土的溫暖,
15 卻不知蛋會被踩碎,
或遭野獸踐踏。
16 牠苛待雛鳥,好像牠們並非己出,
就算徒勞一場,牠也不怕。
17 因為上帝未賜牠智慧,
沒有給牠悟性。
18 然而,一旦牠展翅奔跑,
必嗤笑馬兒和騎士。

19 「馬的力量豈是你賜的?
牠頸上的鬃毛豈是你披的?
20 豈是你使牠跳躍如蝗蟲,
發出令人膽寒的長嘶?
21 牠在谷中刨地,
炫耀力量,奮力衝向敵軍。
22 牠嘲笑恐懼,毫不害怕,
不因刀劍而退縮。
23 牠背上的箭袋錚錚作響,
長矛和投槍閃閃發光。
24 角聲一響,牠便無法靜立,
狂烈地顫抖,急於馳騁大地。
25 聽到角聲,牠就發出長嘶,
牠老遠便嗅到戰爭的氣味,
並聽見吶喊和將領的號令。

26 「鷹隼展翅翱翔,飛往南方,
豈是靠你的智慧?
27 禿鷹騰飛,在高處搭窩,
豈是奉你的命令?
28 牠居住在懸崖上,
盤踞在山岩峭壁,
29 牠從那裡搜尋獵物,
牠的目光直達遠方。
30 牠的幼雛噬血,
哪裡有屍體,牠就在哪裡。」
