Job 41 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
1 (40-20) Canst thou draw out the leviathan with a hook, or canst thou tie his tongue with a cord? 2 (40-21) Canst thou put a ring in his nose, or bore through his jaw with a buckle? 3 (40-22) Will he make many supplications to thee, or speak soft words to thee? 4 (40-23) Will he make a covenant with thee, and wilt thou take him to be a servant for ever, 5 (40-24) Shalt thou play with him as with a bird, or tie him up for thy handmaids? 6 (40-25) Shall friends cut him in pieces, shall merchants divide him? 7 (40-26) Wilt thou fill nets with his skin, and the cabins of fishes with his head? 8 (40-27) Lay thy hand upon him: remember the battle, and speak no more. 9 (40-28) Behold his hope shall fail him, and in the sight of all he shall be cast down. 10 (41-1) I will not stir him up, like one that is cruel, for who can resist my countenance? 11 (41-2) Who hath given me before that I should repay him? All things that are under heaven are mine. 12 (41-3) I will not spare him, nor his mighty words, and framed to make supplication. 13 (41-4) Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can go into the midst of his mouth? 14 (41-5) Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. 15 (41-6) His body is like molten shields, shut close up with scales pressing upon one another. 16 (41-7) One is joined to another, and not so much as any air can come between them: 17 (41-8) They stick one to another and they hold one another fast, and shall not be separated. 18 (41-9) His sneezing is like the shining of fire, and his eyes like the eyelids of the morning. 19 (41-10) Out of his mouth go forth lamps, like torches of lighted fire. 20 (41-11) Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, like that of a pot heated and boiling. 21 (41-12) His breath kindleth coals, and a flame cometh forth out of his mouth. 22 (41-13) In his neck strength shall dwell, and want goeth before his face. 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. 24 (41-15) His heart shall be as hard as a stone, and as firm as a smith’s anvil, 25 (41-16) When he shall raise him up, the angels shall fear, and being affrighted shall purify themselves. 26 (41-17) When a sword shall lay at him, it shall not be able to hold, nor a spear, nor a breastplate. 27 (41-18) For he shall esteem iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. 28 (41-19) The archer shall not put him to flight, the stones of the sling are to him like stubble. 29 (41-20) As stubble will he esteem the hammer, and he will laugh him to scorn who shaketh the spear. 30 (41-21) The beams of the sun shall be under him, and he shall strew gold under him like mire. 31 (41-22) He shall make the deep sea to boil like a pot, and shall make it as when ointments boil. 32 (41-23) A path shall shine after him, he shall esteem the deep as growing old. 33 (41-24) There is no power upon earth that can be compared with him who was made to fear no one, 34 (41-25) He beholdeth every high thing, he is king over all the children of pride.
