Or his tongue with a cord †which thou lettest down?
Or bore his jaw through with a bthorn?
Will he speak soft words unto thee?
4 Will he dmake a covenant with thee?
Wilt thou take him for a servant efor ever?
5 Wilt thou fplay with him as with a bird?
Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
Or his head with fish spears?
Remember the battle, do no more.
9 Behold, the hope of him lis in vain:
10 None is so ofierce that dare stir him up:
Who then is able to stand before me?
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?
His teeth are tterrible round about.
15 His †scales are his pride,
Shut up together as with a close seal.
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.
And sparks of fire leap out.
21 His breath cckindleth coals,
And a flame goeth out of his mouth.
And †sorrow is turned into joy before him.
They are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.
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.
The spear, the dart, nor the ||habergeon.
And brass as rotten wood.
28 The earrow cannot make him flee:
Slingstones are turned with him into stubble.
He laugheth at the shaking of a fspear.
30 †Sharp stones are under him:
He spreadeth gsharp pointed things upon the mire.
He maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.
One would think hthe deep to be hoary.
||Who is made without fear.
He is a king over all mthe children of pride.
