Job 39:16-18 The Voice (VOICE)

16     She is harsh to her young, as if they were not even hers.
        She is unconcerned at the futility of her labor,
17     For God denied her a share of wisdom,
        and in doling out understanding, He passed her by.
18     Oh and yet, look at her when the time comes to run—
        she spreads her strange wings and laughs at the horse who must be guided by his rider
        although she is an absurd bird who can’t even fly.

Job 39:16-18 New International Version (NIV)

16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers;
    she cares not that her labor was in vain,
17 for God did not endow her with wisdom
    or give her a share of good sense.
18 Yet when she spreads her feathers to run,
    she laughs at horse and rider.
