15  “Behold, Behemoth,3

which I made as I made you;

he eats pgrass like an ox.

16  Behold, his strength in his loins,

and his power in the muscles of his belly.

17  He makes his tail stiff like a cedar;

the sinews of his thighs are knit together.

18  His bones are tubes of bronze,

his limbs like bars of iron.

19  “He is qthe first of rthe works4 of God;

let him who made him bring near his sword!

20  For the mountains yield food for him

where all the wild beasts play.

21  Under the lotus plants he lies,

in the shelter of sthe reeds and in the marsh.

22  For his shade the lotus trees cover him;

the willows of the brook surround him.

23  Behold, if the river is turbulent he is not frightened;

he is confident though Jordan rushes against his mouth.

24  Can one take him by his eyes,5

or pierce his nose with a snare?

41 1 “Can you draw out uLeviathan2 with a fishhook

or press down his tongue with a cord?

Can you put va rope in his nose

or pierce his jaw with va hook?

Will he make many pleas to you?

Will he speak to you soft words?

Will he make a covenant with you

to take him for wyour servant forever?
