1 40:6Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2 40:7Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou to me.
3 40:8Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
4 40:9Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like his?
5 40:10Deck thyself now with majesty and excellence; and array thyself with glory and beauty.
6 40:11Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.
7 40:12Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
8 40:13Hide them in the dust together; bind their faces in secret.
9 40:14Then will I also confess to thee that thy own right hand can save thee.
10 40:15Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
11 40:16Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
12 40:17He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his male organs are wrapped together.
13 40:18His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
14 40:19He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach him.
15 40:20Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
16 40:21He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
17 40:22The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook encompass him.
18 40:23Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
19 40:24He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.
20 41:1Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?
21 41:2Canst thou put a hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
22 41:3Will he make many supplications to thee? will he speak soft words to thee?
23 41:4Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?
24 41:5Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
25 41:6Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants.
26 41:7Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
27 41:8Lay thy hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.
28 41:9Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?
