For in vain is the net spread in the sight of any bird,
who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the birds of the heavens?
till an arrow strikes through his liver, as a bird hastens to the snare. And he does not know that it is for his life.
The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib, [but] Israel does not know; my people does not consider.
