lost in stellar translation

The idea of the unicorn mentioned in the Bible is intriguing. Job 39:9-11 reads, in early authorized 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? But later versions translate it as the wild ox. Some scholars think it may refer to a rhinoceros or buffalo. Whatever the real animal was, it must have been wild, horned, and powerful!
