39:5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? Or who hath loosed the bonds of the swift ass,

39:10 Canst thou bind the wild-ox with his band in the furrow? Or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
39:12 Wilt thou confide in him, that he will bring home thy seed, And gather [the grain] of thy threshing-floor?

39:26 Is it by thy wisdom that the hawk soareth, (And) stretcheth her wings toward the south?
39:27 Is it at thy command that the eagle mounteth up, And maketh her nest on high?
39:30 Her young ones also suck up blood: And where the slain are, there is she.
