15"Beholdnow, aBehemoth, which1I madebas well as you; He eatsgrass like an ox.
16"Beholdnow, his strength in his loins And his power in the muscles of his belly.
"He bends his taillike a cedar ; The sinews of his thighs are knittogether.
"His bones are tubes of bronze ; His climbs are like bars of iron.
"He is the 2first of the ways of God ; Let his 3makerbringnear his sword.
20"Surely the mountains4bring him food, And all the beasts of the field5playthere.
21"Under the lotusplants he liesdown, In the covert of the reeds and the marsh.
"The lotusplantscover him with dshade ; The willows of the brooksurround him.
23"If a rivererages, he is not alarmed ; He is confident, though the 6Jordanrushes to his mouth.
"Can anyone capture him fwhen he is on watch, With gbarbs can anyone pierce his nose ?
