The Darby Bible
Job, Chapter 41

   1: Wilt thou draw out the leviathan with the hook, and press down his tongue with a cord?
   2: Wilt thou put a rush-rope into his nose, and pierce his jaw with a spike?
   3: Will he make many supplications unto thee? or will he speak softly unto thee?
   4: Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him as a bondman for ever?
   5: Wilt thou play with him as with a bird, and wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
   6: Shall partners make traffic of him, will they divide him among merchants?
   7: Wilt thou fill his skin with darts, and his head with fish-spears?
   8: Lay thy hand upon him; remember the battle, -- do no more!
   9: Lo, hope as to him is belied: is not one cast down even at the sight of him?
   10: None is so bold as to stir him up; and who is he that will stand before me?
   11: Who hath first given to me, that I should repay [him]? [Whatsoever is] under the whole heaven is mine.
   12: I will not be silent as to his parts, the story of his power, and the beauty of his structure.
   13: Who can uncover the surface of his garment? who can come within his double jaws?
   14: Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror.
   15: The rows of his shields are a pride, shut up together [as with] a close seal.
   16: One is so near to another that no air can come between them;
   17: They are joined each to its fellow; they stick together, and cannot be sundered.
   18: His sneezings flash light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
   19: Out of his mouth go forth flames; sparks of fire leap out:
   20: Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a boiling pot and cauldron.
   21: His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
   22: In his neck lodgeth strength, and terror danceth before him.
   23: The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are fused upon him, they cannot be moved.
   24: His heart is firm as a stone, yea, firm as the nether [millstone].
   25: When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: they are beside themselves with consternation.
   26: If any reach him with a sword, it cannot hold; neither spear, nor dart, nor harpoon.
   27: He esteemeth iron as straw, bronze as rotten wood.
   28: The arrow will not make him flee; slingstones are turned with him into stubble.
   29: Clubs are counted as stubble; he laugheth at the shaking of a javelin.
   30: His under parts are sharp potsherds: he spreadeth a threshing-sledge upon the mire.
   31: He maketh the deep to boil like a pot; he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment;
   32: He maketh the path to shine after him: one would think the deep to be hoary.
   33: Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.
   34: He beholdeth all high things; he is king over all the proud beasts.
