Job 41

Job 41:1  
Is it possible for Leviathan to be pulled out with a fish-hook, or for a hook to be put through the bone of his mouth?

Job 41:2  
Will you put a cord into his nose, or take him away with a cord round his tongue?

Job 41:3  
Will he make prayers to you, or say soft words to you?

Job 41:4  
Will he make an agreement with you, so that you may take him as a servant for ever?

Job 41:5  
Will you make sport with him, as with a bird? or put him in chains for your young women?

Job 41:6  
Will the fishermen make profit out of him? will they have him cut up for the traders?

Job 41:7  
Will you put sharp-pointed irons into his skin, or fish-spears into his head?

Job 41:8  
Only put your hand on him, and see what a fight you will have; you will not do it again!

Job 41:9  
Truly, the hope of his attacker is false; he is overcome even on seeing him!

Job 41:10  
He is so cruel that no one is ready to go against him. Who then is able to keep his place before me?

Job 41:11  
Who ever went against me, and got the better of me? There is no one under heaven!

Job 41:12  
I will not keep quiet about the parts of his body, or about his power, and the strength of his frame.

Job 41:13  
Who has ever taken off his outer skin? who may come inside his inner coat of iron?

Job 41:14  
Who has made open the doors of his face? Fear is round about his teeth.

Job 41:15  
His back is made of lines of plates, joined tight together, one against the other, like a stamp.

Job 41:16  
One is so near to the other that no air may come between them.

Job 41:17  
They take a grip of one another; they are joined together, so that they may not be parted.

Job 41:18  
His sneezings give out flames, and his eyes are like the eyes of the dawn.

Job 41:19  
Out of his mouth go burning lights, and flames of fire are jumping up.

Job 41:20  
Smoke comes out of his nose, like a pot boiling on the fire.

Job 41:21  
His breath puts fire to coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth.

Job 41:22  
Strength is in his neck, and fear goes dancing before him.

Job 41:23  
The plates of his flesh are joined together, fixed, and not to be moved.

Job 41:24  
His heart is as strong as a stone, hard as the lower crushing-stone.

Job 41:25  
When he gets ready for the fight, the strong are overcome with fear.

Job 41:26  
The sword may come near him but is not able to go through him; the spear, or the arrow, or the sharp-pointed iron.

Job 41:27  
Iron is to him as dry grass, and brass as soft wood.

Job 41:28  
The arrow is not able to put him to flight: stones are no more to him than dry stems.

Job 41:29  
A thick stick is no better than a leaf of grass, and he makes sport of the onrush of the spear.

Job 41:30  
Under him are sharp edges of broken pots: as if he was pulling a grain-crushing instrument over the wet earth.

Job 41:31  
The deep is boiling like a pot of spices, and the sea like a perfume-vessel.

Job 41:32  
After him his way is shining, so that the deep seems white.

Job 41:33  
On earth there is not another like him, who is made without fear.

Job 41:34  
Everything which is high goes in fear of him; he is king over all the sons of pride.
