Job 41
Douay-Rheims Bible

God's Power Shown in Creatures

1{40:20}Canst thou draw out the leviathan with a hook, or canst thou tie his tongue with a cord?

2{40:21}Canst thou put a ring in his nose, or bore through his jaw with a buckle?

3{40:22}Will he make many supplications to thee, or speak soft words to thee?

4{40:23}Will he make a covenant with thee, and wilt thou take him to be a servant for ever?

5{40:24}Shalt thou play with him as with a bird, or tie him up for thy handmaids?

6{40:25}Shall friends cut him in pieces, shall merchants divide him?

7{40:26}Wilt thou fill nets with his skin, and the cabins of fishes with his head?

8{40:27}Lay thy hand upon him: remember the battle, and speak no more.

9{40:28}Behold his hope shall fail him, and in the sight of all he shall be cast down.

10{1}I will not stir him up, like one that is cruel, for who can resist my countenance?

11{2}Who hath given me before that I should repay him? All things that are under heaven are mine.

12{3}I will not spare him, nor his mighty words, and framed to make supplication.

13{4}Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can go into the midst of his mouth?

14{5}Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.

15{6}His body is like molten shields, shut close up with scales pressing upon one another.

16{7}One is joined to another, and not so much as any air can come between them:

17{8}They stick one to another and they hold one another fast, and shall not be separated.

18{9}His sneezing is like the shining of fire, and his eyes like the eyelids of the morning.

19{10}Out of his mouth go forth lamps, like torches of lighted fire.

20{11}Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, like that of a pot heated and boiling.

21{12}His breath kindleth coals, and a flame cometh forth out of his mouth.

22{13}In his neck strength shall dwell, and want goeth before his face.

23{14}The members of his flesh cleave one to another: he shall send lightnings against him, and they shall not be carried to another place.

24{15}His heart shall be as hard as a stone, and as firm as a smith's anvil.

25{16}When he shall raise him up, the angels shall fear, and being affrighted shall purify themselves.

26{17}When a sword shall lay at him, it shall not be able to hold, nor a spear, nor a breastplate.

27{18}For he shall esteem iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.

28{19}The archer shall not put him to flight, the stones of the sling are to him like stubble.

29{20}As stubble will he esteem the hammer, and he will laugh him to scorn who shaketh the spear.

30{21}The beams of the sun shall be under him, and he shall strew gold under him like mire.

31{22}He shall make the deep sea to boil like a pot, and shall make it as when ointments boil.

32{23}A path shall shine after him, he shall esteem the deep as growing old.

33{24}There is no power upon earth that can be compared with him who was made to fear no one.

34{25}He beholdeth every high thing, he is king over all the children of pride.
