βουλήσεται δέ σοι μονόκερως δουλεῦσαι, ἢ κοιμηθῆναι ἐπὶ φάτνης σου;
δήσεις δὲ ἐν ἱμᾶσι ζυγὸν αὐτοῦ, ἢ ἑλκύσει σου αὔλακας ἐν πεδίῳ;
πέποιθας δὲ ἐπ' αὐτῷ, ὅτι πολλὴ ἡ ἰσχὺς αὐτοῦ, ἐπαφήσεις δὲ αὐτῷ τὰ ἔργα σου;
πιστεύσεις δὲ ὅτι ἀποδώσει σοι τὸν σπόρον, εἰσοίσει δέ σου τὸν ἅλωνα;

numquid volet rinoceros servire tibi aut morabitur ad praesepe tuum
numquid alligabis rinocerota ad arandum loro tuo aut confringet glebas vallium post te
numquid fiduciam habebis in magna fortitudine eius et derelinques ei labores tuos
numquid credes ei quoniam reddat sementem tibi et aream tuam congreget

English King James Version[]

Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?
Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?

“Will the wild ox consent to serve you? Will it stay by your manger at night?
Can you hold it to the furrow with a harness? Will it till the valleys behind you?
Will you rely on it for its great strength? Will you leave your heavy work to it?
Can you trust it to haul in your grain and bring it to your threshing floor?
