CEBA 7 Can you fill his hide with darts, his head with a fishing spear? NIV 7 Can you fill its hide with harpoons or its head with fishing spears? CEBA 8 Should you lay your hand on him, you would never remember the battle. NIV 8 If you lay a hand on it, you will remember the struggle and never do it again! CEBA 9 Such hopes would be delusional; surely the sight of him makes one stumble. NIV 9 Any hope of subduing it is false; the mere sight of it is overpowering. CEBA 10 Nobody is fierce enough to rouse him; who then can stand before me? NIV 10 No one is fierce enough to rouse it. Who then is able to stand against me? CEBA 11 Who opposes me that I must repay? Everything under heaven is mine. NIV 11 Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me. CEBA 12 I'm not awed by his limbs, his strength, and impressive form.

NIV 13 Who can strip off its outer coat? Who can penetrate its double coat of armor ? CEBA 14 Who can open the doors of his mouth, surrounded by frightening teeth? NIV 14 Who dares open the doors of its mouth, ringed about with fearsome teeth? CEBA 15 His matching scales are his pride, closely locked and sealed. NIV 15 Its back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; CEBA 16 One touches another; even air can't come between them. NIV 16 each is so close to the next that no air can pass between. CEBA 17 Each clings to its pair; joined, they can't be separated. NIV 17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted. CEBA 18 His sneezes emit flashes of light; his eyes are like dawn's rays. NIV 18 Its snorting throws out flashes of light; its eyes are like the rays of dawn. CEBA 19 Shafts of fire shoot from his mouth; like fiery sparks they fly out. NIV 19 Flames stream from its mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. CEBA 20 Smoke pours from his nostrils like a boiling pot over reeds. NIV 20 Smoke pours from its nostrils as from a boiling pot over burning reeds. CEBA 21 His breath lights coals; a flame shoots from his mouth. NIV 21 Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth. CEBA 22 Power resides in his neck; violence dances before him. NIV 22 Strength resides in its neck; dismay goes before it. CEBA 23 The folds of his flesh stick together; on him they are tough and unyielding. NIV 23 The folds of its flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. CEBA 24 His heart is solid like a rock, hard like a lower millstone. NIV 24 Its chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone. CEBA 25 The divine beings dread his rising; they withdraw before his thrashing. NIV 25 When it rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before its thrashing. CEBA 26 The sword that touches him won't prevail; neither will the dart, spear, nor javelin. NIV 26 The sword that reaches it has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. CEBA 27 He treats iron as straw, bronze as rotten wood. NIV 27 Iron it treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. CEBA 28 Arrows can't make him flee; slingstones he turns to straw. NIV 28 Arrows do not make it flee; slingstones are like chaff to it. CEBA 29 He treats a club like straw; he laughs at the lance's rattle. NIV 29 A club seems to it but a piece of straw; it laughs at the rattling of the lance. CEBA 30 His abdomen is like jagged pottery shards; its sharp edges leave a trail in the mud. NIV 30 Its undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge. CEBA 31 He causes the depths to churn like a boiling pot, stirs up the sea like a pot of scented oils, NIV 31 It makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment. CEBA 32 leaves a bright wake behind him; the frothy deep seems white-haired. NIV 32 It leaves a glistening wake behind it; one would think the deep had white hair. CEBA 33 None on earth can compare to him; he is made to be without fear. NIV 33 Nothing on earth is its equal— a creature without fear. CEBA 34 He looks on all the proud; he is king over all proud beasts. NIV 34 It looks down on all that are haughty; it is king over all that are proud.”
