Of God's great power in the leviathan.
Job 41:1 Darrest thou drawe out Leuiathan wyth an Angle, or bynde hys tonge wyth a snare? Job 41:2 Canst thou put a ryng in the nose of him, or bore hys chawe thorow with a naule? Job 41:3 Wyll he make many fayre wordes with the (thynkest thou) or flatter the? Job 41:4 Will he make a couenaunt with the? Or art thou able for to compell hym to do the continuall seruyce? Job 41:5 Wylt thou take thy pastyme wyth hym, as with a byrde, or geue him vnto thy maydens, Job 41:6 that thy companyons may make a refeccion of hym, or that he maye be parted amonge the marchaunt men? Job 41:7 Canst thou fyll the baskett with his skynne, or the fysh pannyer wt his heade? Job 41:8 Darrest þu laye hande vpon hym? It is better for the to consydre what harme myght happen the there thorow, and not to touch him. Job 41:9 For when thou thynkest to haue holde vpon him, he shall begyle the. Job 41:10 No man is so cruell, þt is able to stere him vp. Who is able to stande before me? Job 41:11 Or who hath geuen me any thyng afore hande, þt I maye rewarde him agayne? All thynges vnder heauen are myne: Job 41:12 I feare him not, whether he threaten or speake fayre. Job 41:13 Who lyfteth him vp, and stripeth hym out of his clothes, or who taketh him by the bytt of his brydle? Job 41:14 Who openeth þe dore of his face? for he hath horrible tethe rounde about. Job 41:15 His body is couered wyth scales as it were with shyldes, lockte in, kepte, and well compacte together: Job 41:16 One is so ioyned to another, þt no ayre can come in: Job 41:17 Yee, one hangeth so vpon another, and stycketh so together, þt they cannot be sundered. Job 41:18 His nesyng is lyke a glystering fyre, and his eyes lyke þe mornynge shyne. Job 41:19 Out of his mouth go torches, Job 41:20 and out of his nostrels ther goeth a smoke, lyke as out of an hote sething pot. Job 41:21 His breth maketh the coales burne, and the flamme goeth out of hys mouth. Job 41:22 In his necke remayneth strength, and nothing is to laborious for him. Job 41:23 The membres of his body are ioyned so strayte one to another, and cleaue so fast together, that he cannot be moued. Job 41:24 His hert is as herd as a stone, and as fast as the stythye that the smyth smyteth vpon. Job 41:25 When he goeth: the myghtye are afrayed, and feare troubleth them. Job 41:26 If any man draw out a swearde at him, it shall not hurt him: there may nether speare, iauelinge ner brest plate, abyde hym. Job 41:27 He setteth as moch by a strawe as by yron, and as moch by a rotten stocke as by brasse. Job 41:28 He starteth not awaye for hym that bendeth the bowe: and as for slynge stones, he careth as moch for stubble as for them. Job 41:29 He counteth the dartes no better then a strawe, he laugheth hym to scorne that shaketh the speare. Job 41:30 He treadeth the gold in the myre lyke the sharpe potsherdes. Job 41:31 He maketh the depe to boyle lyke a pot, and stereth the see together lyke an oyntment. Job 41:32 He maketh a path to be sene after hym, the depe is hys walkynge place. Job 41:33 Upon erth is there no power lyke vnto hys, for he is so made that he feareth not. Job 41:34 If a man wyll consydre all hye thynges, thys same is a kynge ouer all the chyldren of pryde.
