Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor, and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.1
Unleash the fury of your wrath,2 look at every proud man and bring him low,3
look at every proud4 man and humble him,5 crush6 the wicked where they stand.
Bury them all in the dust together;7 shroud their faces in the grave.8
Then I myself will admit to you that your own right hand can save you.9
"Look at the behemoth, which I made10 along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox.11
What strength12 he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly!13
His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit.14
His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs15 like rods of iron.16
He ranks first among the works of God,17 yet his Maker18 can approach him with his sword.19
The hills bring him their produce,20 and all the wild animals play21 nearby.22
