Job 41

41:1 Canst thou draw out Leuiathan with an hooke or his tongue with a corde which thou lettest downe 41:2 Canst thou put an hooke into his nose or bore his iawe through with a thorne 41:3 Will he make many supplications vnto thee will he speake soft words vnto thee 41:4 Will he make a couenant with thee wilt thou take him for a seruant for euer 41:5 Wilt thou play with him as with a birde wilt thou binde him for thy maydens 41:6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him shall they part him among the merchants 41:7 Canst thou fill his skinne with barbed irons or his head with fishspeares 41:8 Lay thine hand vpon him, remember the battell: doe no more. 41:9 Behold, the hope of him is in vaine: shall not one be cast downe euen at the sight of him 41:10 None is so fierce that dare stirre him vp: who then is able to stand before me 41:11 Who hath preuented me that I should repay him whatsoeuer is vnder the whole heauen, is mine. 41:12 I will not conceale his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. 41:13 Who can discouer the face of his garment or who can come to him, with his double bridle 41:14 Who can open the doores of his face his teeth are terrible round about. 41:15 His scales are his pride, shut vp together as with a close seale. 41:16 One is so neere to another, that no ayre can come betweene them. 41:17 They are ioyned one to another, they sticke together, that they cannot be sundred. 41:18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eye-liddes of the morning. 41:19 Out of his mouth goe burning lampes, and sparkes of fire leape out. 41:20 Out of his nostrels goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. 41:21 His breath kindleth coales, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. 41:22 In his necke remaineth strength, and sorrowe is turned into ioy before him. 41:23 The flakes of his flesh are ioyned together: they are firme in themselues, they cannot be moued. 41:24 His heart is as firme as a stone, yea as hard as a peece of the nether mil-stone. 41:25 When he rayseth vp himselfe, the mightie are afraid: by reason of breakings they purifie themselues. 41:26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the speare, the dart, nor the habergeon. 41:27 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brasse as rotten wood. 41:28 The arrow cannot make him flee: sling-stones are turned with him into stubble. 41:29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a speare. 41:30 Sharpe stones are vnder him: he spreadeth sharpe pointed things vpon the mire. 41:31 He maketh the deepe to boyle like a pot: hee maketh the sea like a pot of oyntment. 41:32 Hee maketh a path to shine after him; one would thinke the deepe to bee hoarie. 41:33 Upon earth there is not his like: who is made without feare. 41:34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king ouer all the children of pride.
