Chapter 40

1

\40:6\Then the Lord made answer to Job out of the storm-wind, and said,

2

\40:7\Get your strength together like a man of war: I will put questions to you, and you will give me the answers.

3

\40:8\Will you even make my right of no value? will you say that I am wrong in order to make clear that you are right?

4

\40:9\Have you an arm like God? have you a voice of thunder like his?

5

\40:10\Put on the ornaments of your pride; be clothed with glory and power:

6

\40:11\Let your wrath be overflowing; let your eyes see all the sons of pride, and make them low.

7

\40:12\Send destruction on all who are lifted up, pulling down the sinners from their places.

8

\40:13\Let them be covered together in the dust; let their faces be dark in the secret place of the underworld.

9

\40:14\Then I will give praise to you, saying that your right hand is able to give you salvation.

10

\40:15\See now the Great Beast, whom I made, even as I made you; he takes grass for food, like the ox.

11

\40:16\His strength is in his body, and his force in the muscles of his stomach.

12

\40:17\His tail is curving like a cedar; the muscles of his legs are joined together.

13

\40:18\His bones are pipes of brass, his legs are like rods of iron.

14

\40:19\He is the chief of the ways of God, made by him for his pleasure.

15

\40:20\He takes the produce of the mountains, where all the beasts of the field are at play.

16

\40:21\He takes his rest under the trees of the river, and in the pool, under the shade of the water-plants.

17

\40:22\He is covered by the branches of the trees; the grasses of the stream are round him.

18

\40:23\Truly, if the river is overflowing, it gives him no cause for fear; he has no sense of danger, even if Jordan is rushing against his mouth.

19

\40:24\Will anyone take him when he is on the watch, or put metal teeth through his nose?

20

\41:1\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?

21

\41:2\Will you put a cord into his nose, or take him away with a cord round his tongue?

22

\41:3\Will he make prayers to you, or say soft words to you?

23

\41:4\Will he make an agreement with you, so that you may take him as a servant for ever?

24

\41:5\Will you make sport with him, as with a bird? or put him in chains for your young women?

25

\41:6\Will the fishermen make profit out of him? will they have him cut up for the traders?

26

\41:7\Will you put sharp-pointed irons into his skin, or fish-spears into his head?

27

\41:8\Only put your hand on him, and see what a fight you will have; you will not do it again!

28

\41:9\Truly, the hope of his attacker is false; he is overcome even on seeing him!

Job 41
