The Book of Job

Chapter 41

1

Canst thou draw out4 leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord [which] thou lettest down?55

2

Canst thou put4 an hook into his nose? or bore4 his jaw through with a thorn?

3

Will he make many55 supplications unto thee? will he speak17 soft [words] unto thee?

4

Will he make4 a covenant with thee? wilt thou take4 him for a servant for ever?

5

Wilt thou play17 with him as [with] a bird? or wilt thou bind4 him for thy maidens?

6

Shall the companions make a banquet4 of him? shall they part4 him among the merchants?

7

Canst thou fill17 his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

8

Lay3 thine hand upon him, remember3 the battle, do no more.55

9

Behold, the hope of him is in vain:8 shall not [one] be cast down93 even at the sight of him?

10

None [is so] fierce that dare stir him up:4 5782 55 who then is able to stand101 before me?

11

Who hath prevented52 me, that I should repay17 [him? whatsoever is] under the whole heaven is mine.

12

I will not conceal55 his parts, nor his power, 1697 nor his comely proportion.

13

Who can discover14 the face of his garment? [or] who can come4 [to him] with his double bridle?

14

Who can open14 the doors of his face? his teeth [are] terrible round about.

15

[His] scales 650 [are his] pride, shut up together7 [as with] a close seal.

16

One is so near4 to another, that no air can come4 between them.

17

They are joined29 one to another, they stick together,101 that they cannot be sundered.101

18

By his neesings a light doth shine,55 and his eyes [are] like the eyelids of the morning.

19

Out of his mouth go4 burning lamps, [and] sparks of fire leap out.101

20

Out of his nostrils goeth4 smoke, as [out] of a seething7 pot or caldron.

21

His breath kindleth17 coals, and a flame goeth out4 of his mouth.

22

In his neck remaineth4 strength, and sorrow is turned into joy4 before him.

23

The flakes of his flesh are joined together:1 they are firm7 in themselves; they cannot be moved.11

24

His heart is as firm7 as a stone; yea, as hard7 as a piece of the nether [millstone].

25

When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid:4 by reason of breakings they purify101 themselves.

26

The sword of him that layeth56 at him cannot hold:4 the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.

27

He esteemeth4 iron as straw, [and] brass as rotten wood.

28

The arrow 7198 cannot make him flee:55 slingstones 7050 are turned8 with him into stubble.

29

Darts are counted8 as stubble: he laugheth4 at the shaking of a spear.

30

Sharp stones [are] under him: he spreadeth4 sharp pointed things upon the mire.

31

He maketh the deep to boil55 like a pot: he maketh4 the sea like a pot of ointment.

32

He maketh a path to shine55 after him; [one] would think4 the deep [to be] hoary.

33

Upon earth there is not his like, who is made7 without fear.

34

He beholdeth4 all high [things]: he [is] a king over all the children of pride.
