6 Then the Lord canswered Job out of the whirlwind and said:
eI will question you, and you make it known to me.
Will you condemn me that fyou may be in the right?
9 Have you gan arm like God,
and can you thunder with ha voice like his?
iclothe yourself with glory and splendor.
and look on everyone who is jproud and abase him.
bind their faces in the world below.2
that your own oright hand can save you.
15 “Behold, Behemoth,3
which I made as I made you;
he eats pgrass like an ox.
and his power in the muscles of his belly.
the sinews of his thighs are knit together.
his limbs like bars of iron.
let him who made him bring near his sword!
where all the wild beasts play.
in the shelter of sthe reeds and in the marsh.
the willows of the brook surround him.
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?
or press down his tongue with a cord?
2 Can you put va rope in his nose
or pierce his jaw with va hook?
Will he speak to you soft words?
to take him for wyour servant forever?
or will you put him on a leash for your girls?
Will they divide him up among the merchants?
or his head with fishing spears?
remember the battle—you will not do it again!
9 3 Behold, the hope of a man is false;
he is laid low even at the sight of him.
Who then is he who can stand before me?
11 xWho has first given to me, that I should repay him?
yWhatever is under the whole heaven is mine.
or his mighty strength, or his goodly frame.
Who would come near him with a bridle?
Around his teeth is terror.
15 His back is made of4 rows of shields,
shut up closely as with a seal.
that no air can come between them.
17 They are zjoined one to another;
they clasp each other and cannot be separated.
and his eyes are like athe eyelids of the dawn.
sparks of fire leap forth.
as from a boiling pot and burning rushes.
21 His breath bkindles coals,
and a flame comes forth from his mouth.
and terror dances before him.
23 The folds of his flesh cstick together,
firmly cast on him and immovable.
hard as the lower millstone.
25 When he raises himself up, the mighty5 are afraid;
at the crashing they are beside themselves.
nor the spear, the dart, or the javelin.
and bronze as rotten wood.
for him, sling stones are turned to stubble.
he laughs at the rattle of javelins.
30 His underparts are like sharp dpotsherds;
he spreads himself like ea threshing sledge on the mire.
he makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
one would think the deep to be white-haired.
33 fOn earth there is not his like,
a creature without fear.
he is king over all the gsons of pride.”

A large animal, exact identity unknown
Or in his sight

A large sea animal, exact identity unknown

Or His pride is in his
