Behold, [as] wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness [yieldeth] food for them [and] for [their] children.
Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell [there], and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.
A wild ass used to the wilderness, [that] snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her.
The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
[So is] this great and wide sea, wherein [are] things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep [forth].
Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.
And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
