1 [40:25] Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? 2 [40:26] Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? 3 [40:27] Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? 4 [40:28] Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? 5 [40:29] Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? 6 [40:30] Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? 7 [40:31] Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? 8 [40:32] Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. 9 [41:1] Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? 10 [41:2] None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? 11 [41:3] Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. 12 [41:4] I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. 13 [41:5] Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? 14 [41:6] Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. 15 [41:7] His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. 16 [41:8] One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. 17 [41:9] They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. 18 [41:10] By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19 [41:11] Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. 20 [41:12] Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. 21 [41:13] His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. 22 [41:14] In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. 23 [41:15] The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. 24 [41:16] His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. 25 [41:17] When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. 26 [41:18] The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon. 27 [41:19] He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. 28 [41:20] The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. 29 [41:21] Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear. 30 [41:22] Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire. 31 [41:23] He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. 32 [41:24] He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. 33 [41:25] Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. 34 [41:26] He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.
