The Horse

         

                             

           Do you give the horse its strength or clothe                       its neck with a flowing mane?


   



           Do you make it leap like a locust, striking            terror with its proud snorting?


   It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength,
  and charges into the fray.







It laughs at the fear, afraid of nothing;
it does not shy away from the sword.

The quiver rattles against its side, along
with the flashing spear and lance.







In frenzied excitement it eats up the ground;
it cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.






At the blast of the trumpet it snorts, 'Aha!'
It catches the scent of battle from afar,
the shout of commanders and the battle cry.


Job 39: 19-25
