Geneva Study Bible
   1: Is it possible for Leviathan to be pulled out with a fish-hook, or for a hook to be put through the bone of his mouth?
   2: Will you put a cord into his nose, or take him away with a cord round his tongue?
   3: Will he make prayers to you, or say soft words to you?
   4: Will he make an agreement with you, so that you may take him as a servant for ever?
   5: Will you make sport with him, as with a bird? or put him in chains for your young women?
   6: Will the fishermen make profit out of him? will they have him cut up for the traders?
   7: Will you put sharp-pointed irons into his skin, or fish-spears into his head?
   8: Only put your hand on him, and see what a fight you will have; you will not do it again!
   9: Truly, the hope of his attacker is false; he is overcome even on seeing him!
   10: He is so cruel that no one is ready to go against him. Who then is able to keep his place before me?
   11: Who ever went against me, and got the better of me? There is no one under heaven!
   12: I will not keep quiet about the parts of his body, or about his power, and the strength of his frame.
   13: Who has ever taken off his outer skin? who may come inside his inner coat of iron?
   14: Who has made open the doors of his face? Fear is round about his teeth.
   15: His back is made of lines of plates, joined tight together, one against the other, like a stamp.
   16: One is so near to the other that no air may come between them.
   17: They take a grip of one another; they are joined together, so that they may not be parted.
   18: His sneezings give out flames, and his eyes are like the eyes of the dawn.
   19: Out of his mouth go burning lights, and flames of fire are jumping up.
   20: Smoke comes out of his nose, like a pot boiling on the fire.
   21: His breath puts fire to coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth.
   22: Strength is in his neck, and fear goes dancing before him.
   23: The plates of his flesh are joined together, fixed, and not to be moved.
   24: His heart is as strong as a stone, hard as the lower crushing-stone.
   25: When he gets ready for the fight, the strong are overcome with fear.
   26: The sword may come near him but is not able to go through him; the spear, or the arrow, or the sharp-pointed iron.
   27: Iron is to him as dry grass, and brass as soft wood.
   28: The arrow is not able to put him to flight: stones are no more to him than dry stems.
   29: A thick stick is no better than a leaf of grass, and he makes sport of the onrush of the spear.
   30: Under him are sharp edges of broken pots: as if he was pulling a grain-crushing instrument over the wet earth.
   31: The deep is boiling like a pot of spices, and the sea like a perfume-vessel.
   32: After him his way is shining, so that the deep seems white.
   33: On earth there is not another like him, who is made without fear.
   34: Everything which is high goes in fear of him; he is king over all the sons of pride.
