Of God's great power in the leviathan.
Job 41:1 Canst thou drawe out Liuiathan with an hooke, and with a line which thou shalt cast downe vnto his tongue? Job 41:2 Canst thou cast an hooke into his nose? canst thou perce his iawes with an angle? Job 41:3 Will he make many prayers vnto thee, or speake thee faire? Job 41:4 Will hee make a couenant with thee? and wilt thou take him as a seruant for euer? Job 41:5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bynd him for thy maydes? Job 41:6 Shall the companions baket with him? shal they deuide him among the marchants? Job 41:7 Canst thou fill the basket with his skinne? or the fishpanier with his head? Job 41:8 Lay thine hand vpon him: remember the battel, and do no more so. Job 41:9 Behold, his hope is in vaine: for shal not one perish euen at the sight of him? Job 41:10 None is so fearce that dare stirre him vp. Who is he then that can stand before me? Job 41:11 Who hath preuented mee that I shoulde make an ende? Al vnder heauen is mine. Job 41:12 I will not keepe silence concerning his partes, nor his power nor his comely proportion. Job 41:13 Who can discouer the face of his garmet? or who shall come to him with a double bridle? Job 41:14 Who shall open the doores of his face? his teeth are fearefull ronnd about. Job 41:15 The maiestie of his scales is like strog shields, and are sure sealed. Job 41:16 One is set to another, that no winde can come betweene them. Job 41:17 One is ioyned to another: they sticke together, that they cannot be sundered. Job 41:18 His niesings make the light to shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Job 41:19 Out of his mouth go lampes, and sparkes of fire leape out. Job 41:20 Out of his nostrels commeth out smoke, as out of a boyling pot or caldron. Job 41:21 His breath maketh the coales burne: for a flame goeth out of his mouth. Job 41:22 In his necke remayneth strength, & labour is reiected before his face. Job 41:23 The members of his bodie are ioyned: they are strong in themselues, and cannot be mooued. Job 41:24 His heart is as strong as a stone, & as hard as the nether milstone. Job 41:25 The mightie are afrayd of his maiestie, and for feare they faint in themselues. Job 41:26 When the sword doeth touch him, he will not rise vp, nor for the speare, dart nor habergeon. Job 41:27 He esteemeth yron as strawe, and brasse as rotten wood. Job 41:28 The archer canot make him flee: ye stones of the sling are turned into stubble vnto him: Job 41:29 The dartes are counted as strawe: and hee laugheth at the shaking of the speare. Job 41:30 Sharpe stones are vnder him, and he spreadeth sharpe things vpon the myre. Job 41:31 He maketh the depth to boyle like a pot, and maketh the sea like a pot of oyntment. Job 41:32 He maketh a path to shine after him: one would thinke the depth as an hoare head. Job 41:33 In the earth there is none like him: hee is made without feare. Job 41:34 He beholdeth al hie things: he is a King ouer all the children of pride.
