Verses 2:23-24 seem almost comical to our western culture but in the Middle East they would know exactly what is being said here. Even today, a young female camel is extremely unreliable. They wonder around aimlessly. The wild donkey is something very different. They aren’t aimless walkers; they get mad, really mad. They chase down the male donkeys until they get what they want…it’s not a pretty sight! I wonder if we chase these idols like Israel did.
