Iyov (Book of Job), Chapter 41

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'25 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fish-hook? or press down his tongue with a cord?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'26 Canst thou put a ring into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a hook?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'27 Will he make many supplications unto thee? or will he speak soft words unto thee?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'28 Will he make a covenant with thee, that thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'29 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'30 Will the bands of fishermen make a banquet of him? Will they part him among the merchants?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'31 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish-spears?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'32 Lay thy hand upon him; think upon the battle, thou wilt do so no more.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'1 Behold, the hope of him is in vain; shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'2 None is so fierce that dare stir him up; who then is able to stand before Me?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'3 Who hath given Me anything beforehand, that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is Mine.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'4 Would I keep silence concerning his boastings, or his proud talk, or his fair array of words?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'5 Who can uncover the face of his garment? Who shall come within his double bridle?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'6 Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'7 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'8 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'9 They are joined one to another; they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'10 His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'11 Out of his mouth go burning torches, and sparks of fire leap forth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'12 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot and burning rushes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'13 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'14 In his neck abideth strength, and dismay danceth before him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'15 The flakes of his flesh are joined together; they are firm upon him; they cannot be moved.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'16 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, firm as the nether millstone.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'17 When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid; by reason of despair they are beside themselves.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'18 If one lay at him with the sword, it will not hold; nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'19 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'20 The arrow cannot make him flee; slingstones are turned with him into stubble.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'21 Clubs are accounted as stubble; he laugheth at the rattling of the javelin.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'22 Sharpest potsherds are under him; he spreadeth a threshing-sledge upon the mire.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'23 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot; he maketh the sea like a seething mixture.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'24 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'25 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made to be fearless.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000021-QINU`"'26 He looketh at all high things; he is king over all the proud beasts.
