Job 41

41 Canst thou draw out ||leviathan with an ahook?

Or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

Canst thou bput an chook into his nose?

Or bore his jaw through with a bthorn?

Will he make many supplications unto thee?

Will he speak soft words unto thee?

Will he dmake a covenant with thee?

Wilt thou take him for a servant efor ever?

Wilt thou fplay with him as with a bird?

Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

Shall gthe companions hmake a banquet of him?

Shall they ipart him among the kmerchants?

Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons?

Or his head with fish spears?

Lay thine hand upon him,

Remember the battle, do no more.

Behold, the hope of him lis in vain:

Shall mnot one be ncast down even at the sight of him?

10  None is so ofierce that dare stir him up:

Who then is able to stand before me?

11  pWho hath ppprevented me, that I should repay him?

qWhatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

12  I will not conceal his rparts,

Nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

13  Who can discover sthe face of his garment?

Or who can come to him ||with his double bridle?

14  Who can open the doors of his face?

His teeth are tterrible round about.

15  His scales are his pride,

Shut up together as with a close seal.

16  One is so near to another,

That no air can come between them.

17  They are ujoined one to another,

They xstick together, that they cannot be sundered.

18  By his neesings a ylight doth shine,

And his eyes are like zthe eyelids of the morning.

19  Out of his mouth go burning lamps,

And sparks of fire leap out.

20  Out of his nostrils goeth smoke,

As out of a aseething pot or bcaldron.

21  His breath cckindleth coals,

And a flame goeth out of his mouth.

22  In his neck remaineth strength,

And sorrow is turned into joy before him.

23  The flakes of his flesh are ujoined together:

They are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.

24  His heart is as firm as a stone;

Yea, as hard as ca piece of the nether millstone.

25  When he raiseth up himself, the dmighty are afraid:

By reason of breakings they purify themselves.

26  The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold:

The spear, the dart, nor the ||habergeon.

27  He esteemeth iron as straw,

And brass as rotten wood.

28  The earrow cannot make him flee:

Slingstones are turned with him into stubble.

29  Darts are counted as stubble:

He laugheth at the shaking of a fspear.

30  Sharp stones are under him:

He spreadeth gsharp pointed things upon the mire.

31  He maketh hthe deep to iboil like a pot:

He maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.

32  He maketh a path to shine after him;

One would think hthe deep to be hoary.

33  kUpon earth there is not his llike,

||Who is made without fear.

34  He beholdeth all high things:

He is a king over all mthe children of pride.
