When the waters lie hidden as in stone, and the face of the deep holdeth fast together.

Their young ones become strong, they grow up in the open field, they go forth, and return not unto them. Who hath sent out the wild ass free? and who hath loosed the bands of the onager, Whose house I made the wilderness, and the salt plain his dwellings? He laugheth at the tumult of the city, and heareth not the shouts of the driver; The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing. Will the buffalo be willing to serve thee, or will he lodge by thy crib? Canst thou bind the buffalo with his cord in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

The wing of the ostrich beats joyously But is it the stork's pinion and plumage?

What time she lasheth herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider. Hast thou given strength to the horse? hast thou clothed his neck with the quivering mane?

Doth the hawk fly by thine intelligence, and stretch his wings toward the south? Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make his nest on high? He inhabiteth the rock and maketh his dwelling on the point of the cliff, and the fastness: From thence he spieth out the prey, his eyes look into the distance; And his young ones suck up blood; and where the slain are, there is he.

His bones are tubes of bronze, his members are like bars of iron. He is the chief of God's ways: he that made him gave him his sword. For the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under lotus-bushes, in the covert of the reed and fen: Lotus-bushes cover him with their shade; the willows of the brook surround him.
