40 And the Lord xsaid to Job:
2 “Shall a faultfinder ycontend with the Almighty?
He who argues with God, let him answer it.”
3 Then Job answered the Lord and said:
4 “Behold, I am zof small account; what shall I answer you?
aI lay my hand on my mouth.
5 I have spoken bonce, and I will not answer;
btwice, but I will proceed no further.”
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?
Hebrew Gird up your loins
Hebrew in the hidden place
A large animal, exact identity unknown
Or in his sight
