|New International Version (© 2011)|
The hills bring it their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby.
King James Bible
Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
American Standard Version
Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the beasts of the field do play.
Young's Literal Translation
For food do mountains bear for him, And all the beasts of the field play there.
Job 40:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The mountains bring him forth food - It cannot therefore be the hippopotamus, as he is seldom found far from the rivers where he has his chief residence.
Where all the beasts of the field play - He frequents those places where he can have most prey. He makes a mock of all the beasts of the field. They can neither resist his power, nor escape from his agility. All this answers to what we know of the mammoth, but not at all to the hippopotamus.
