Of God's great power in the leviathan.
Job 41:1 Darrest thou drawe out Leuyathan wt an angle, or bynde hys tonge with a snare? Job 41:2 Canste thou put a rynge in the nose of hym, or bore hys chaftes thorow wt a naule. Job 41:3 Wil he make many fayre wordes wyth the (thinckest thou) or flattre the? Job 41:4 Wyll he make a couenaunt wyth the? Or art thou able for to compel him to do the contynuall seruyce? Job 41:5 Wylt thou take thy pastyme wyth hym as with a byrd, or geue him vnto thy maydens, Job 41:6 that thy companyons maye hewe hym in peces, to be parted amonge the marchaunt men? Job 41:7 Canste thou fyl þe net with his skinne, or the fyshe pannyer with hys heade? Job 41:8 Darrest thou laye hande vpon him? It is better for the to consydre what harme might happen the there thorow & not to touche hym. Job 41:9 For when thou thinkest to haue hold vpon hym, he shall begyle the: Euery man also that seyth hym, shal go backe. And why? Job 41:10 there darre none be so bolde as to rayse hym vp. Who is able to stande before me? Job 41:11 Or, who hath geuen me anye thynge afore hande, that I am bound to reward hym againe? All thynges vnder heauen are myne. Job 41:12 I feare hym not, whether he threaten or speake fayre. Job 41:13 Who lyfteth hym vp, & strypeth hym out of hys clothes, or who taketh him by the byt of hys brydle? Job 41:14 Who openeth the dore of hys face? for he hath horryble tethe rounde aboute. Job 41:15 Hys body is couered with scales as it were wyth shyldes, lockt in, kepte, & wel compacte together. Job 41:16 One is so ioyned to another, þt no ayre can come in Job 41:17 Yea one hangeth so vpon another, & stycketh so together, that they can not be sundered. Job 41:18 His nesynge is lyke a glysteryng fyre, & his eyes lyke the morning shyne. Job 41:19 Oute of hys mouthe go torches & fyre brandes Job 41:20 oute of hys nostrels there goeth a smoke, like as oute of an hote sethinge pot. Job 41:21 His breth maketh the cotes burne, the flamme goeth out of hys mouth. Job 41:22 In his necke remayneth strength & before hys face sorow is turned to gladnes. Job 41:23 The membres of his body are ioyned so strait one to another, and cleue so fast together, that he can not be moued. Job 41:24 His hert is as herde as a stone, & as faste as the stithye that the hammer man smyteth vpon. Job 41:25 When he goeth, the myghtiest of al are afrayed, & the waues heauy. Job 41:26 If he drawe out the swearde, there maye neyther speare nor brest plate, abyde hym Job 41:27 He setteth as much by a strawe as by yron, and as muche by a rotten stocke as by metall. Job 41:28 He starteth not away for hym that bendeth the bowe: & as for slynge stones, he careth as muche for stubble as for them. Job 41:29 He counteth the hammer no better then a strawe, he laugheth hym to scorne that shaketh the speare. Job 41:30 He treadeth the golde in the myre lyke the sharpe potsherdes. Job 41:31 He maketh the depe to seethe and boyle lyke a pot, & stereth the sea together lyke an oyntment. Job 41:32 The waye is lyght after hym, the depe is hys walkynge place. Job 41:33 Vpon earth 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 thinges, thys same is a kynge ouer all the chyldren of pryde.
