30:30 A lion [H3918] [which is] strongest [H1368] among beasts [H929] , and turneth not away [H7725] for [H6440] any;
30:31 A greyhound [H4975] [H2223] ; an he goat [H8495] also [H176] ; and a king [H4428] , against whom [there is] no rising up [H510] .(greyhound: or, horse: Heb. girt in the loins)

30:33 Surely the churning [H4330] of milk [H2461] bringeth forth [H3318] butter [H2529] , and the wringing [H4330] of the nose [H639] bringeth forth [H3318] blood [H1818] : so the forcing [H4330] of wrath [H639] bringeth forth [H3318] strife [H7379] .
