15 “Behold now, [a]Behemoth, which I made [b]as well as you; He eats grass like an ox. 16 “Behold now, his strength in his loins And his power in the muscles of his belly. 17 “He bends his tail like a cedar; The sinews of his thighs are knit together. 18 “His bones are tubes of bronze; His [c]limbs are like bars of iron.
19 “He is the first of the ways of God; Let his maker bring near his sword. 20 “Surely the mountains bring him food, And all the beasts of the field play there. 21 “Under the lotus plants he lies down, In the covert of the reeds and the marsh. 22 “The lotus plants cover him with [d]shade; The willows of the brook surround him. 23 “If a river [e]rages, he is not alarmed; He is confident, though the Jordan rushes to his mouth. 24 “Can anyone capture him [f]when he is on watch, With [g]barbs can anyone pierce his nose?
God’s Power Shown in Creatures
41 “[h]Can you draw out [i]Leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? 2 “Can you put a [j]rope in his nose Or pierce his jaw with a [k]hook? 3 “Will he make many supplications to you, Or will he speak to you soft words? 4 “Will he make a covenant with you? Will you take him for a servant forever? 5 “Will you play with him as with a bird, Or will you bind him for your maidens? 6 “Will the [l]traders bargain over him? Will they divide him among the merchants? 7 “Can you fill his skin with harpoons, Or his head with fishing spears? 8 “Lay your hand on him; Remember the battle; [m]you will not do it again! 9 “[n]Behold, [o]your expectation is false; Will [p]you be laid low even at the sight of him? 10 “No one is so fierce that he dares to arouse him; Who then is he that can stand before Me? 11 “Who has [q]given to Me that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine.
