"Do you hunt the prey for the lioness and satisfy the hunger of the lions
King James Bible
Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
American Standard Version
Canst thou hunt the prey for the lioness, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,
Young's Literal Translation
Dost thou hunt for a lion prey? And the desire of young lions fulfil?
Job 38:39 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? - Rather the lioness, or strong lion. Hast thou his instinct? Dost thou know the habits and haunts of such animals as he seeks for his food? Thou hast neither his strength, his instinct nor his cunning. In the best Hebrew Bibles, the thirty-ninth chapter begins with this verse, and begins properly, as a new subject now commences, relating to the natural history of the earth, or the animal kingdom; as the preceding chapter does to astronomy and meteorology.
