Job 40

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

40:1 Then the Lord made answer to Job out of the storm-wind, and said,

40:2 Get your strength together like a man of war: I will put questions to you, and you will give me the answers.

40:3 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?

40:4 Have you an arm like God? have you a voice of thunder like his?

40:5 Put on the ornaments of your pride; be clothed with glory and power:

40:6 Let your wrath be overflowing; let your eyes see all the sons of pride, and make them low.

40:7 Send destruction on all who are lifted up, pulling down the sinners from their places.

40:8 Let them be covered together in the dust; let their faces be dark in the secret place of the underworld.

40:9 Then I will give praise to you, saying that your right hand is able to give you salvation.

40:10 See now the Great Beast, whom I made, even as I made you; he takes grass for food, like the ox.

40:11 His strength is in his body, and his force in the muscles of his stomach.

40:12 His tail is curving like a cedar; the muscles of his legs are joined together.

40:13 His bones are pipes of brass, his legs are like rods of iron.

40:14 He is the chief of the ways of God, made by him for his pleasure.

40:15 He takes the produce of the mountains, where all the beasts of the field are at play.

40:16 He takes his rest under the trees of the river, and in the pool, under the shade of the water-plants.

40:17 He is covered by the branches of the trees; the grasses of the stream are round him.

40:18 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.

40:19 Will anyone take him when he is on the watch, or put metal teeth through his nose?

40:20 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?

40:21 Will you put a cord into his nose, or take him away with a cord round his tongue?

40:22 Will he make prayers to you, or say soft words to you?

40:23 Will he make an agreement with you, so that you may take him as a servant for ever?

40:24 Will you make sport with him, as with a bird? or put him in chains for your young women?

40:25 Will the fishermen make profit out of him? will they have him cut up for the traders?

40:26 Will you put sharp-pointed irons into his skin, or fish-spears into his head?

40:27 Only put your hand on him, and see what a fight you will have; you will not do it again!

40:28 Truly, the hope of his attacker is false; he is overcome even on seeing him!
