Job 41 (WEBP)

[1] “Can you draw out Leviathan° with a fish hook, or press down his tongue with a cord?
[2] Can you put a rope into his nose, or pierce his jaw through with a hook?
[3] Will he make many petitions to you, or will he speak soft words to you?
[4] Will he make a covenant with you, that you should take him for a servant forever?
[5] Will you play with him as with a bird? Or will you bind him for your girls?
[6] Will traders barter for him? Will they part him among the merchants?
[7] Can you fill his skin with barbed irons, or his head with fish spears?
[8] Lay your hand on him. Remember the battle, and do so no more.
[9] Behold, the hope of him is in vain. Won’t one be cast down even at the sight of him?
[10] None is so fierce that he dare stir him up. Who then is he who can stand before me?
[11] Who has first given to me, that I should repay him? Everything under the heavens is mine.
[12] “I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.
[13] Who can strip off his outer garment? Who will come within his jaws?
[14] Who can open the doors of his face? Around his teeth is terror.
[15] Strong scales are his pride, shut up together with a close seal.
[16] One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
[17] They are joined to one another. They stick together, so that they can’t be pulled apart.
[18] His sneezing flashes out light. His eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
[19] Out of his mouth go burning torches. Sparks of fire leap out.
[20] Out of his nostrils a smoke goes, as of a boiling pot over a fire of reeds.
[21] His breath kindles coals. A flame goes out of his mouth.
[22] There is strength in his neck. Terror dances before him.
[23] The flakes of his flesh are joined together. They are firm on him. They can’t be moved.
[24] His heart is as firm as a stone, yes, firm as the lower millstone.
[25] When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid. They retreat before his thrashing.
[26] If one attacks him with the sword, it can’t prevail; nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.
[27] He counts iron as straw, and bronze as rotten wood.
[28] The arrow can’t make him flee. Sling stones are like chaff to him.
[29] Clubs are counted as stubble. He laughs at the rushing of the javelin.
[30] His undersides are like sharp potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge.
[31] He makes the deep to boil like a pot. He makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
[32] He makes a path shine after him. One would think the deep had white hair.
[33] On earth there is not his equal, that is made without fear.
[34] He sees everything that is high. He is king over all the sons of pride.”

Job 41:1 Leviathan is a name for a crocodile or similar creature.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 41 (KJVS)

[1] Canst thou draw out H4900 (8799) leviathan H3882 with an hook H2443? or his tongue H3956 with a cord H2256 [which] thou lettest down H8257 (8686)?
[2] Canst thou put H7760 (8799) an hook H100 into his nose H639? or bore H5344 (8799) his jaw H3895 through with a thorn H2336?
[3] Will he make many H7235 (8686) supplications H8469 unto thee? will he speak H1696 (8762) soft H7390 [words] unto thee?
[4] Will he make H3772 (8799) a covenant H1285 with thee? wilt thou take H3947 (8799) him for a servant H5650 for ever H5769?
[5] Wilt thou play H7832 (8762) with him as [with] a bird H6833? or wilt thou bind H7194 (8799) him for thy maidens H5291?
[6] Shall the companions H2271 make a banquet H3739 (8799) of him? shall they part H2673 (8799) him among the merchants H3669?
[7] Canst thou fill H4390 (8762) his skin H5785 with barbed irons H7905? or his head H7218 with fish H1709 spears H6767?
[8] Lay H7760 (8798) thine hand H3709 upon him, remember H2142 (8798) the battle H4421, do no more H3254 (8686).
[9] Behold, the hope H8431 of him is in vain H3576 (8738): shall not [one] be cast down H2904 (8714) even at the sight H4758 of him?
[10] None [is so] fierce H393 that dare stir him up H5782 (8799) (8675) H5782 (8686): who then is able to stand H3320 (8691) before H6440 me?
[11] Who hath prevented H6923 (8689) me, that I should repay H7999 (8762) [him? whatsoever is] under the whole heaven H8064 is mine.
[12] I will not conceal H2790 (8686) his parts H907, nor his power H1369 H1697, nor his comely H2433 proportion H6187.
[13] Who can discover H1540 (8765) the face H6440 of his garment H3830? [or] who can come H935 (8799) [to him] with his double H3718 bridle H7448?
[14] Who can open H6605 (8765) the doors H1817 of his face H6440? his teeth H8127 [are] terrible H367 round about H5439.
[15] [His] scales H4043 H650 [are his] pride H1346, shut up together H5462 (8803) [as with] a close H6862 seal H2368.
[16] One H259 is so near H5066 (8799) to another H259, that no air H7307 can come H935 (8799) between them.
[17] They are joined H1692 (8792) one H376 to another H251, they stick together H3920 (8691), that they cannot be sundered H6504 (8691).
[18] By his neesings H5846 a light H216 doth shine H1984 (8686), and his eyes H5869 [are] like the eyelids H6079 of the morning H7837.
[19] Out of his mouth H6310 go H1980 (8799) burning lamps H3940, [and] sparks H3590 of fire H784 leap out H4422 (8691).
[20] Out of his nostrils H5156 goeth H3318 (8799) smoke H6227, as [out] of a seething H5301 (8803) pot H1731 or caldron H100.
[21] His breath H5315 kindleth H3857 (8762) coals H1513, and a flame H3851 goeth out H3318 (8799) of his mouth H6310.
[22] In his neck H6677 remaineth H3885 (8799) strength H5797, and sorrow H1670 is turned into joy H1750 (8799) before H6440 him.
[23] The flakes H4651 of his flesh H1320 are joined together H1692 (8804): they are firm H3332 (8803) in themselves; they cannot be moved H4131 (8735).
[24] His heart H3820 is as firm H3332 (8803) as a stone H68; yea, as hard H3332 (8803) as a piece H6400 of the nether H8482 [millstone].
[25] When he raiseth up H7613 himself, the mighty H352 are afraid H1481 (8799): by reason of breakings H7667 they purify H2398 (8691) themselves.
[26] The sword H2719 of him that layeth H5381 (8688) at him cannot hold H6965 (8799): the spear H2595, the dart H4551, nor the habergeon H8302.
[27] He esteemeth H2803 (8799) iron H1270 as straw H8401, [and] brass H5154 as rotten H7539 wood H6086.
[28] The arrow H1121 H7198 cannot make him flee H1272 (8686): slingstones H68 H7050 are turned H2015 (8738) with him into stubble H7179.
[29] Darts H8455 are counted H2803 (8738) as stubble H7179: he laugheth H7832 (8799) at the shaking H7494 of a spear H3591.
[30] Sharp H2303 stones H2789 [are] under him: he spreadeth H7502 (8799) sharp pointed things H2742 upon the mire H2916.
[31] He maketh the deep H4688 to boil H7570 (8686) like a pot H5518: he maketh H7760 (8799) the sea H3220 like a pot of ointment H4841.
[32] He maketh a path H5410 to shine H215 (8686) after H310 him; [one] would think H2803 (8799) the deep H8415 [to be] hoary H7872.
[33] Upon earth H6083 there is not his like H4915, who is made H6213 (8803) without H1097 fear H2844.
[34] He beholdeth H7200 (8799) all high H1364 [things]: he [is] a king H4428 over all the children H1121 of pride H7830.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 41 (YLT)

[1] Dost thou draw leviathan with an angle? And with a rope thou lettest down-his tongue?
[2] Dost thou put a reed in his nose? And with a thorn pierce his jaw?
[3] Doth he multiply unto thee supplications? Doth he speak unto thee tender things?
[4] Doth he make a covenant with thee? Dost thou take him for a servant age-during?
[5] Dost thou play with him as a bird? And dost thou bind him for thy damsels?
[6] (Feast upon him do companions, They divide him among the merchants!)
[7] Dost thou fill with barbed irons his skin? And with fish-spears his head?
[8] Place on him thy hand, Remember the battle-do not add!
[9] Lo, the hope of him is found a liar, Also at his appearance is not one cast down?
[10] None so fierce that he doth awake him, And who is he before Me stationeth himself?
[11] Who hath brought before Me and I repay? Under the whole heavens it is mine.
[12] I do not keep silent concerning his parts, And the matter of might, And the grace of his arrangement.
[13] Who hath uncovered the face of his clothing? Within his double bridle who doth enter?
[14] The doors of his face who hath opened? Round about his teeth are terrible.
[15] A pride-strong ones of shields, Shut up-a close seal.
[16] One unto another they draw nigh, And air doth not enter between them.
[17] One unto another they adhere, They stick together and are not separated.
[18] His sneezings cause light to shine, And his eyes are as the eyelids of the dawn.
[19] Out of his mouth do flames go, sparks of fire escape.
[20] Out of his nostrils goeth forth smoke, As a blown pot and reeds.
[21] His breath setteth coals on fire, And a flame from his mouth goeth forth.
[22] In his neck lodge doth strength, And before him doth grief exult.
[23] The flakes of his flesh have adhered- Firm upon him-it is not moved.
[24] His heart is firm as a stone, Yea, firm as the lower piece.
[25] From his rising are the mighty afraid, From breakings they keep themselves free.
[26] The sword of his overtaker standeth not, Spear-dart-and lance.
[27] He reckoneth iron as straw, brass as rotten wood.
[28] The son of the bow doth not cause him to flee, Turned by him into stubble are stones of the sling.
[29] As stubble have darts been reckoned, And he laugheth at the shaking of a javelin.
[30] Under him are sharp points of clay, He spreadeth gold on the mire.
[31] He causeth to boil as a pot the deep, The sea he maketh as a pot of ointment.
[32] After him he causeth a path to shine, One thinketh the deep to be hoary.
[33] There is not on the earth his like, That is made without terror.
[34] Every high thing he doth see, He is king over all sons of pride.
