Job 41

RHE 1 (40-20) Canst thou draw out the leviathan with a hook, or canst thou tie his tongue with a cord? NIV 1 "Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie down his tongue with a rope? RHE 2 (40-21) Canst thou put a ring in his nose, or bore through his jaw with a buckle? NIV 2 Can you put a cord through his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? RHE 3 (40-22) Will he make many supplications to thee, or speak soft words to thee? NIV 3 Will he keep begging you for mercy? Will he speak to you with gentle words? RHE 4 (40-23) Will he make a covenant with thee, and wilt thou take him to be a servant for ever, NIV 4 Will he make an agreement with you for you to take him as your slave for life? RHE 5 (40-24) Shalt thou play with him as with a bird, or tie him up for thy handmaids? NIV 5 Can you make a pet of him like a bird or put him on a leash for your girls? RHE 6 (40-25) Shall friends cut him in pieces, shall merchants divide him? NIV 6 Will traders barter for him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? RHE 7 (40-26) Wilt thou fill nets with his skin, and the cabins of fishes with his head? NIV 7 Can you fill his hide with harpoons or his head with fishing spears? RHE 8 (40-27) Lay thy hand upon him: remember the battle, and speak no more. NIV 8 If you lay a hand on him, you will remember the struggle and never do it again! RHE 9 (40-28) Behold his hope shall fail him, and in the sight of all he shall be cast down. NIV 9 Any hope of subduing him is false; the mere sight of him is overpowering. RHE 10 (41-1) I will not stir him up, like one that is cruel, for who can resist my countenance? NIV 10 No one is fierce enough to rouse him. Who then is able to stand against me? RHE 11 (41-2) Who hath given me before that I should repay him? All things that are under heaven are mine. NIV 11 Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me. RHE 12 (41-3) I will not spare him, nor his mighty words, and framed to make supplication. NIV 12 "I will not fail to speak of his limbs, his strength and his graceful form. RHE 13 (41-4) Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can go into the midst of his mouth? NIV 13 Who can strip off his outer coat? Who would approach him with a bridle? RHE 14 (41-5) 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? RHE 15 (41-6) His body is like molten shields, shut close up with scales pressing upon one another. NIV 15 His back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; RHE 16 (41-7) One is joined to another, and not so much as any air can come between them: NIV 16 each is so close to the next that no air can pass between. RHE 17 (41-8) They stick one to another and they hold one another fast, and shall not be separated. NIV 17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted. RHE 18 (41-9) His sneezing is like the shining of fire, and his eyes like the eyelids of the morning. NIV 18 His snorting throws out flashes of light; his eyes are like the rays of dawn. RHE 19 (41-10) Out of his mouth go forth lamps, like torches of lighted fire. NIV 19 Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. RHE 20 (41-11) Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, like that of a pot heated and boiling. NIV 20 Smoke pours from his nostrils as from a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. RHE 21 (41-12) His breath kindleth coals, and a flame cometh forth out of his mouth. NIV 21 His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth. RHE 22 (41-13) In his neck strength shall dwell, and want goeth before his face. NIV 22 Strength resides in his neck; dismay goes before him. RHE 23 (41-14) The members of his flesh cleave one to another: he shall send lightnings against him, and they shall not be carried to another place. NIV 23 The folds of his flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. RHE 24 (41-15) His heart shall be as hard as a stone, and as firm as a smith’s anvil, NIV 24 His chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. RHE 25 (41-16) When he shall raise him up, the angels shall fear, and being affrighted shall purify themselves. NIV 25 When he rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before his thrashing. RHE 26 (41-17) When a sword shall lay at him, it shall not be able to hold, nor a spear, nor a breastplate. NIV 26 The sword that reaches him has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. RHE 27 (41-18) For he shall esteem iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. NIV 27 Iron he treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. RHE 28 (41-19) The archer shall not put him to flight, the stones of the sling are to him like stubble. NIV 28 Arrows do not make him flee; slingstones are like chaff to him. RHE 29 (41-20) As stubble will he esteem the hammer, and he will laugh him to scorn who shaketh the spear. NIV 29 A club seems to him but a piece of straw; he laughs at the rattling of the lance. RHE 30 (41-21) The beams of the sun shall be under him, and he shall strew gold under him like mire. NIV 30 His undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. RHE 31 (41-22) He shall make the deep sea to boil like a pot, and shall make it as when ointments boil. NIV 31 He makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment. RHE 32 (41-23) A path shall shine after him, he shall esteem the deep as growing old. NIV 32 Behind him he leaves a glistening wake; one would think the deep had white hair. RHE 33 (41-24) There is no power upon earth that can be compared with him who was made to fear no one, NIV 33 Nothing on earth is his equal-- a creature without fear. RHE 34 (41-25) He beholdeth every high thing, he is 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."
