Of God's great power in the leviathan.
Job 41:1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fish hook? or press down his tongue with a cord? Job 41:2 Canst thou put a rope into his nose? or pierce his jaw through with a hook? Job 41:3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? or will he speak soft words unto thee? Job 41:4 Will he make a covenant with thee, that thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever? Job 41:5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? Job 41:6 Shall the bands [of fishermen] make traffic of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Job 41:7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons, or his head with fish spears? Job 41:8 Lay thine hand upon him; remember the battle, and do so no more. Job 41:9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? Job 41:10 None is so fierce that he dare stir him up: who then is he that can stand before me? Job 41:11 Who hath first given unto me, that I should repay him? [whatsoever is] under the whole heaven is mine. Job 41:12 I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his comely proportion. Job 41:13 Who can strip off his outer garment? who shall come within his double bridle? Job 41:14 Who can open the doors of his face? round about his teeth is terror. Job 41:15 His strong scales are [his] pride, shut up together [as with] a close seal. Job 41:16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. Job 41:17 They are joined one to another; they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. Job 41:18 His neesings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Job 41:19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, and sparks of fire leap forth. Job 41:20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goeth, as of a seething pot and [burning] rushes. Job 41:21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth forth from his mouth. Job 41:22 In his neck abideth strength, and terror danceth before him. Job 41:23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm upon him; they cannot be moved. Job 41:24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, firm as the nether millstone. Job 41:25 When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: by reason of consternation they are beside themselves. Job 41:26 If one lay at him with the sword, it cannot avail; nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft. Job 41:27 He counteth iron as straw, [and] brass as rotten wood. Job 41:28 The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Job 41:29 Clubs are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the rushing of the javelin. Job 41:30 His underparts are [like] sharp potsherds: he spreadeth [as it were] a threshing wain upon the mire. Job 41:31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like ointment. Job 41:32 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. Job 41:33 Upon earth there is not his like, that is made without fear. Job 41:34 He beholdeth every thing that is high: he is king over all the sons of pride.
