Unto whom I made a house in the wilderness, and his dwellings in the salty land. He laughs at the multitude of the city, neither does he hearken to the voice of the exactor of tribute. The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searches after every green thing. Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee or abide by thy crib? Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? Will he harrow the valleys after thee? Wilt thou trust him because his strength is great? Or wilt thou leave thy labour to him? Wilt thou trust him, that he will bring home thy seed and gather it into thy barn? Didst thou give beautiful wings unto the peacock, or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he shall drink up a river and not change; he trusts that he can draw up the Jordan into his mouth. His maker shall take him by the weakness of his eyes in a snare, and pierce through his nose.
