40:1Then the Lord made answer to Job out of the storm-wind, and said,
40:2Get your strength together like a man of war: I will put questions to you, and you will give me the answers.
40:3Will you even make my right of no value? will you say that I am wrong in order to make clear that you are right?
40:4Have you an arm like God? have you a voice of thunder like his?
40:5Put on the ornaments of your pride; be clothed with glory and power:
40:6Let your wrath be overflowing; let your eyes see all the sons of pride, and make them low.
40:7Send destruction on all who are lifted up, pulling down the sinners from their places.
40:8Let them be covered together in the dust; let their faces be dark in the secret place of the underworld.
40:9Then I will give praise to you, saying that your right hand is able to give you salvation.
40:10See now the Great Beast, whom I made, even as I made you; he takes grass for food, like the ox.
40:11His strength is in his body, and his force in the muscles of his stomach.
40:12His tail is curving like a cedar; the muscles of his legs are joined together.
40:13His bones are pipes of brass, his legs are like rods of iron.
40:14He is the chief of the ways of God, made by him for his pleasure.
40:15He takes the produce of the mountains, where all the beasts of the field are at play.
40:16He takes his rest under the trees of the river, and in the pool, under the shade of the water-plants.
40:17He is covered by the branches of the trees; the grasses of the stream are round him.
40:18Truly, 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.
40:19Will anyone take him when he is on the watch, or put metal teeth through his nose?
40:20Is 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?
40:21Will you put a cord into his nose, or take him away with a cord round his tongue?
40:22Will he make prayers to you, or say soft words to you?
40:23Will he make an agreement with you, so that you may take him as a servant for ever?
40:24Will you make sport with him, as with a bird? or put him in chains for your young women?
40:25Will the fishermen make profit out of him? will they have him cut up for the traders?
40:26Will you put sharp-pointed irons into his skin, or fish-spears into his head?
40:27Only put your hand on him, and see what a fight you will have; you will not do it again!
40:28Truly, the hope of his attacker is false; he is overcome even on seeing him!
