The Lord’s Challenge Continues

39"Do you know when the wild goats give birth? Have you watched as deer are born in the wild?H3045H6256H3277H5553H3205H8104H355H2342 2Do you know how many months they carry their young? Are you aware of the time of their delivery?H5608H3391H4390H3045H6256H3205 3They crouch down to give birth to their young and deliver their offspring.H3766H6398H3206H7971H2256 4Their young grow up in the open fields, then leave home and never return.H1121H2492H7235H1250H3318H7725 5"Who gives the wild donkey its freedom? Who untied its ropes?H7971H6501H2670H6605H4147H6171 6I have placed it in the wilderness; its home is the wasteland.H1004H7760H6160H4420H4908 7It hates the noise of the city and has no driver to shout at it.H7832H1995H7151H8085H8663H5065 8The mountains are its pastureland, where it searches for every blade of grass.H3491H2022H4829H1875H310H3387 9"Will the wild ox consent to being tamed? Will it spend the night in your stall?H7214H14H5647H3885H18 10Can you hitch a wild ox to a plow? Will it plow a field for you?H7194H7214H5688H8525H7702H6010H310 11Given its strength, can you trust it? Can you leave and trust the ox to do your work?H982H3581H7227H5800H3018 12Can you rely on it to bring home your grain and deliver it to your threshing floor?H539H7725H7725H2233H622H1637 13"The ostrich flaps her wings grandly, but they are no match for the feathers of the stork.H7443H3671H5965H84H2624H5133 14She lays her eggs on top of the earth, letting them be warmed in the dust.H5800H1000H776H2552H6083 15She doesn't worry that a foot might crush them or a wild animal might destroy them.H7911H7272H2115H7704H2416H1758 16She is harsh toward her young, as if they were not her own. She doesn't care if they die.H7188H1121H3808H3018H7385H6343 17For God has deprived her of wisdom. He has given her no understanding.H433H5382H2451H2505H998 18But whenever she jumps up to run, she passes the swiftest horse with its rider.H6256H4754H4791H7832H5483H7392 19"Have you given the horse its strength or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?H5414H5483H1369H3847H6677H7483 20Did you give it the ability to leap like a locust? Its majestic snorting is terrifying!H7493H697H1935H5170H367 21It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength when it charges out to battle.H2658H6010H7797H3581H3318H7125H5402 22It laughs at fear and is unafraid. It does not run from the sword.H7832H6343H2865H7725H6440H2719 23The arrows rattle against it, and the spear and javelin flash.H827H7439H3851H2595H3591 24It paws the ground fiercely and rushes forward into battle when the ram's horn blows.H1572H776H7494H7267H539H6963H7782 25It snorts at the sound of the horn. It senses the battle in the distance. It quivers at the captain's commands and the noise of battle.H559H1767H7782H1889H1889H7306H4421H7350H7482H8269H8643 26"Is it your wisdom that makes the hawk soar and spread its wings toward the south?H5322H82H998H6566H3671H8486 27Is it at your command that the eagle rises to the heights to make its nest?H5404H1361H6310H7311H7064H7311 28It lives on the cliffs, making its home on a distant, rocky crag.H7931H3885H5553H8127H5553H4686 29From there it hunts its prey, keeping watch with piercing eyes.H2658H400H5869H5027H7350 30Its young gulp down blood. Where there's a carcass, there you'll find it."H667H5966H1818H2491H1931
