KJV 1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down ? NIV 1 "Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie down his tongue with a rope? KJV 2 Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? NIV 2 Can you put a cord through his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? KJV 3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? NIV 3 Will he keep begging you for mercy? Will he speak to you with gentle words? KJV 4 Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou 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? KJV 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? KJV 6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? NIV 6 Will traders barter for him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? KJV 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? KJV 8 Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more . NIV 8 If you lay a hand on him, you will remember the struggle and never do it again! KJV 9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain : shall 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. KJV 10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up : who then is able to stand before me? NIV 10 No one is fierce enough to rouse him. Who then is able to stand against me? KJV 11 Who hath prevented 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. KJV 12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power , nor his comely proportion. NIV 12 "I will not fail to speak of his limbs, his strength and his graceful form. KJV 13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? NIV 13 Who can strip off his outer coat? Who would approach him with a bridle? KJV 14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. NIV 14 Who dares open the doors of his mouth, ringed about with his fearsome teeth? KJV 15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. NIV 15 His back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; KJV 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. KJV 17 They are joined one to another, they stick together , that they cannot be sundered . NIV 17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted. KJV 18 By his neesings a light doth shine , 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. KJV 19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out . NIV 19 Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. KJV 20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. NIV 20 Smoke pours from his nostrils as from a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. KJV 21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. NIV 21 His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth. KJV 22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. NIV 22 Strength resides in his neck; dismay goes before him. KJV 23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together : they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved . NIV 23 The folds of his flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. KJV 24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. NIV 24 His chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. KJV 25 When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid : by reason of breakings they purify themselves. NIV 25 When he rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before his thrashing. KJV 26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold : the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon. NIV 26 The sword that reaches him has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. KJV 27 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. NIV 27 Iron he treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. KJV 28 The arrow cannot make him flee : slingstones are turned with him into stubble. NIV 28 Arrows do not make him flee; slingstones are like chaff to him. KJV 29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear. NIV 29 A club seems to him but a piece of straw; he laughs at the rattling of the lance. KJV 30 Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire. NIV 30 His undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. KJV 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. KJV 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. KJV 33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. NIV 33 Nothing on earth is his equal-- a creature without fear. KJV 34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride. NIV 34 He looks down on all that are haughty; he is king over all that are proud."
