Job 41

ASV 1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? NIV 1 "Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie down his tongue with a rope? ASV 2 Canst thou put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook? NIV 2 Can you put a cord through his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? ASV 3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? Or will he speak soft words unto thee? NIV 3 Will he keep begging you for mercy? Will he speak to you with gentle words? ASV 4 Will he make a covenant with thee, That thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever? NIV 4 Will he make an agreement with you for you to take him as your slave for life? ASV 5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? NIV 5 Can you make a pet of him like a bird or put him on a leash for your girls? ASV 6 Will the bands [of fishermen] make traffic of him? Will they part him among the merchants? NIV 6 Will traders barter for him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? ASV 7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons, Or his head with fish-spears? NIV 7 Can you fill his hide with harpoons or his head with fishing spears? ASV 8 Lay thy hand upon him; Remember the battle, and do so no more. NIV 8 If you lay a hand on him, you will remember the struggle and never do it again! ASV 9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: Will not one be cast down even at the sight of him? NIV 9 Any hope of subduing him is false; the mere sight of him is overpowering. ASV 10 None is so fierce that he dare stir him up; Who then is he that can stand before me? NIV 10 No one is fierce enough to rouse him. Who then is able to stand against me? ASV 11 Who hath first given unto me, that I should repay him? [Whatsoever is] under the whole heaven is mine. NIV 11 Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me. ASV 12 I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, Nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame. NIV 12 "I will not fail to speak of his limbs, his strength and his graceful form. ASV 13 Who can strip off his outer garment? Who shall come within his jaws? NIV 13 Who can strip off his outer coat? Who would approach him with a bridle? ASV 14 Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror. NIV 14 Who dares open the doors of his mouth, ringed about with his fearsome teeth? ASV 15 [His] strong scales are [his] pride, Shut up together [as with] a close seal. NIV 15 His back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; ASV 16 One is so near to another, That no air can come between them. NIV 16 each is so close to the next that no air can pass between. ASV 17 They are joined one to another; They stick together, so that they cannot be sundered. NIV 17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted. ASV 18 His sneezings flash forth light, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. NIV 18 His snorting throws out flashes of light; his eyes are like the rays of dawn. ASV 19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, And sparks of fire leap forth. NIV 19 Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. ASV 20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goeth, As of a boiling pot and [burning] rushes. NIV 20 Smoke pours from his nostrils as from a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. ASV 21 His breath kindleth coals, And a flame goeth forth from his mouth. NIV 21 His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth. ASV 22 In his neck abideth strength, And terror danceth before him. NIV 22 Strength resides in his neck; dismay goes before him. ASV 23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: They are firm upon him; They cannot be moved. NIV 23 The folds of his flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. ASV 24 His heart is as firm as a stone; Yea, firm as the nether millstone. NIV 24 His chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. ASV 25 When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: By reason of consternation they are beside themselves. NIV 25 When he rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before his thrashing. ASV 26 If one lay at him with the sword, it cannot avail; Nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft. NIV 26 The sword that reaches him has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. ASV 27 He counteth iron as straw, [And] brass as rotten wood. NIV 27 Iron he treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. ASV 28 The arrow cannot make him flee: Sling-stones are turned with him into stubble. NIV 28 Arrows do not make him flee; slingstones are like chaff to him. ASV 29 Clubs are counted as stubble: He laugheth at the rushing of the javelin. NIV 29 A club seems to him but a piece of straw; he laughs at the rattling of the lance. ASV 30 His underparts are [like] sharp potsherds: He spreadeth [as it were] a threshing-wain upon the mire. NIV 30 His undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. ASV 31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: He maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. NIV 31 He makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment. ASV 32 He maketh a path to shine after him; One would think the deep to be hoary. NIV 32 Behind him he leaves a glistening wake; one would think the deep had white hair. ASV 33 Upon earth there is not his like, That is made without fear. NIV 33 Nothing on earth is his equal-- a creature without fear. ASV 34 He beholdeth everything that is high: He is king over all the sons of pride. NIV 34 He looks down on all that are haughty; he is king over all that are proud."
