[Gavest thou] the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
From thence she seeketh the prey, [and] her eyes behold afar off.
She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, [and] stretch her wings toward the south?
What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
She is hardened against her young ones, as though [they were] not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;
And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,
Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain [are], there [is] she.
