Job 39

King James Version
The First Speech of the Lord (continued)
1 Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?
2 Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
3 They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.
4 Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.
5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?
6 Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.
7 He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.
8 The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.
9 Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?
12 Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?
13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,
15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her's: her labour is in vain without fear;
17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
19 Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?
20 Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
21 He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.
22 He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.
23 The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.
24 He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.
25 He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
26 Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.1

Division

God proceeds here to show Job what little reason he had to charge him with unkindness who was so compassionate to the inferior creatures and took such a tender care of them, or to boast of himself, and his own good deeds before God, which were nothing to the divine mercies. He shows him also what great reason he had to be humble who knew so little of the nature of the creatures about him and had so little influence upon them, and to submit to that God on whom they all depend. He discourses particularly,
I. Concerning the wild goats and hinds, Job 39:1-4.
II. Concerning the wild ass, Job 39:5-8.
III. Concerning the unicorn, Job 39:9-12.
IV. Concerning the peacock, Job 39:13.
V. Concerning the ostrich, Job 39:13-18.
VI. Concerning the horse, Job 39:19-25.
VII. Concerning the hawk and the eagle, Job 39:26-30.2

 

 

Lesson for Job

If the leviathan of Job 41 were a Nile River crocodile, as suggested by commentators, it could be captured. But the leviathan is more wild and fierce; all of chapter 41 is devoted to its description. According to 41:19-21. this creature breathed out fire and smoke. Implication is that Job is behaving like a lion, like a wild goat, wild ox, wild ass, stupid ostrich, even like a brachiosaurus and plesiosaurus. Job is wild and stupid in accusing God of being unfair. From these wild animals Job is to learn that by nature he too is stubbornly unchangeable except through the Gospel. Job can no more change himself than these wild animals can change themselves. Only the miracle of the Redeemer (19:25), Pardoner (7:21), Advocate (9:33) and Angel above a thousand (33:23) can accomplish this. Job realized the implication, which few commentators have. Job repents in dust and ashes (42:6) and then a miracle occurs. His flesh, diseased with cancerous and leprous sores, becomes fresh as that of a young child. What Elihu had foretold in 33:25 came about. Then Job received double of all he had lost, including a whole new family and, it seems, his lifespan was doubled.3
