Of God's great power in the leviathan.
Job 41:1 Darrest thou drawe out Leuiathan with an angle, or bynde his tonge with a snare? Job 41:2 Canst thou put a rynge in the nose of him, or bore his chaftes thorow with a naule? Job 41:3 Wyll he make many fayre wordes with the (thynkest thou) or flatre the: Job 41:4 Wyll he make a couenaunt with the? Or, art thou able for to compell him to do the contynuall seruyce? Job 41:5 Wilt thou take thy pastyne wt him as with a byrde, or geue him vnto thy maydens, Job 41:6 that thy companyons maye hew him in peces, to be parted amonge the marchaunt men? Job 41:7 Canst thou fyll the nett wt his skynne, or ye fysh panyer with his heade? Job 41:8 Darrest thou laye honde vpon him? It is better for the to considre what harme might happe the there thorow and not to touch him. Job 41:9 For when thou thynkest to haue holde vpon him, he shall begyle the: Euery man also that seyth him, shall go backe. And why? Job 41:10 There darre none be so bolde, as to rayse him vp. Who is able to stonde before me? Job 41:11 Or, who hath geuen me eny thynge afore hande, that I am bounde to rewarde him agayne? All thinges vnder heauen are myne. Job 41:12 I feare him not, whether he threaten or speake fayre. Job 41:13 Who lifteth him vp and stripeth him out of his clothes, or who taketh him by the bytt of his brydle? Job 41:14 Who openeth the dore of his face? for he hath horrible tethe rounde aboute. Job 41:15 His body is couered with scales as it were with shyldes, lockte in, kepte, and well copacte together. Job 41:16 One is so ioyned to another, that no ayre can come in: Job 41:17 Yee one hangeth so vpon another, and sticke so together, that they can not be sundered. Job 41:18 His nesinge is like a glisteringe fyre, and his eyes like the mornynge shyne. Job 41:19 Out of his mouth go torches and fyre brandes, Job 41:20 out off his nostrels there goeth a smoke, like as out off an hote seetinge pott. Job 41:21 His breth maketh the coales burne, the flame goeth out of his mouth. Job 41:22 In his necke remayneth strength, and before his face sorowe is turned to gladnesse. Job 41:23 The membres of his body are ioyned so strayte one to another, and cleue so fast together, that he can not be moued. Job 41:24 His hert is as harde as a stone, ad as fast as the styth ye that the hammer man smyteth vpon. Job 41:25 When he goeth: the mightiest off all are afrayed, and the wawes heuy. Job 41:26 Yff he drawe out the swearde, there maye nether speare ner brest plate abyde him. Job 41:27 He setteth as moch by a strawe as by yro, and as moch by a rotten stocke as by metall. Job 41:28 He starteth not awaye for him that bendeth the bowe, & as for slynge stones, he careth as moch for stubble as for them Job 41:29 He counteth the hammer no better then a strawe, he laugheth him to scorne that shaketh the speare. Job 41:30 He treadeth the golde in the myre like ye sharpe potsherdes. Job 41:31 He maketh the depe to seeth and boyle like a pott, and stereth the see together like an oyntment. Job 41:32 The waye is light after him, the depe is his walkynge place. Job 41:33 Vpon earth is there no power like vnto his, for he is so made, that he feareth not. Job 41:34 Yff a man will cosidre all hye thinges, this same is a kynge ouer all the children off pryde.
