Of God's great power in the leviathan.
Job 41:1 Canst thou draw out Leuiathan with an hooke? or his tongue with a corde [which] thou lettest downe? Job 41:2 Canst thou put an hooke into his nose? or bore his iawe through with a thorne? Job 41:3 Will he make many supplications vnto thee? will he speake soft [words] vnto thee? Job 41:4 Will he make a couenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a seruant for euer? Job 41:5 Wilt thou play with him as with a birde? wilt thou binde him for thy maydens? Job 41:6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Job 41:7 Canst thou fill his skinne with barbed irons? or his head with fishspeares? Job 41:8 Lay thine hand vpon him, remember the battell: doe no more. Job 41:9 Behold, the hope of him is in vaine: shall not one be cast downe euen at the sight of him? Job 41:10 None is so fierce that dare stirre him vp: who then is able to stand before me? Job 41:11 Who hath preuented me that I should repay [him? whatsoeuer] is vnder the whole heauen, is mine. Job 41:12 I will not conceale his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. Job 41:13 Who can discouer the face of his garment? or who can come [to him], with his double bridle? Job 41:14 Who can open the doores of his face? his teeth [are] terrible round about. Job 41:15 [His] scales are [his] pride, shut vp together [as with] a close seale. Job 41:16 One is so neere to another, that no ayre can come betweene them. Job 41:17 They are ioyned one to another, they sticke together, that they cannot be sundred. Job 41:18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eye-liddes of the morning. Job 41:19 Out of his mouth goe burning lampes, [and] sparkes of fire leape out. Job 41:20 Out of his nostrels goeth smoke, as [out] of a seething pot or caldron. Job 41:21 His breath kindleth coales, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. Job 41:22 In his necke remaineth strength, and sorrowe is turned into ioy before him. Job 41:23 The flakes of his flesh are ioyned together: they are firme in themselues, they cannot be moued. Job 41:24 His heart is as firme as a stone, yea as hard as a peece of the nether [mil-stone]. Job 41:25 When he rayseth vp himselfe, the mightie are afraid: by reason of breakings they purifie themselues. Job 41:26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the speare, the dart, nor the habergeon. Job 41:27 He esteemeth iron as straw, [and] brasse as rotten wood. Job 41:28 The arrow cannot make him flee: sling-stones are turned with him into stubble. Job 41:29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a speare. Job 41:30 Sharpe stones [are] vnder him: he spreadeth sharpe pointed things vpon the mire. Job 41:31 He maketh the deepe to boyle like a pot: hee maketh the sea like a pot of oyntment. Job 41:32 Hee maketh a path to shine after him; one would thinke the deepe to bee hoarie. Job 41:33 Upon earth there is not his like: who is made without feare. Job 41:34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king ouer all the children of pride.
