Job 41

WBT 1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a 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? WBT 2 Canst thou put a 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? WBT 3 Will he make many supplications to thee? will he speak soft [words] to thee? NIV 3 Will he keep begging you for mercy? Will he speak to you with gentle words? WBT 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? WBT 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? WBT 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? WBT 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? WBT 8 Lay thy 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! WBT 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. WBT 10 None [is so] fierce that he dare rouse him: 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? WBT 11 Who hath first benefited me, that I should repay [him]? [whatever 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. WBT 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. WBT 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? WBT 14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth [are] terrible around. NIV 14 Who dares open the doors of his mouth, ringed about with his fearsome teeth? WBT 15 [His] scales [are his] pride, shut together [as with] a close seal. NIV 15 His back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 18 His sneezings flash 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. WBT 19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, [and] sparks of fire dart forth. NIV 19 Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. WBT 20 Out of his nostrils issueth 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. WBT 21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame issueth from his mouth. NIV 21 His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yes, as hard as a piece of the nether [millstone]. NIV 24 His chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. WBT 25 When he raiseth 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. WBT 26 The sword of him that attacketh 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. WBT 27 He esteemeth iron as straw, [and] brass as rotten wood. NIV 27 Iron he treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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."
