Job 39:19-25 Common English Bible (CEB)

Horse

19 Did you give strength to the horse,
        clothe his neck with a mane,
20     cause him to leap like a locust,
        his majestic snorting, a fright?
21 He[a] paws in the valley, prances proudly,
        charges at battle weapons,
22     laughs at fear, unafraid.
He doesn’t turn away from the sword;
23     a quiver of arrows flies by him,
        flashing spear and dagger.
24 Excitedly, trembling, he swallows the ground;
    can’t stand still at a trumpet’s blast.
25 At a trumpet’s sound, he says, “Aha!”
    smells the battle from afar,
        hears[b] officers’ shouting and the battle cry.
