Job 41Tree of Life Version (TLV)

41 “See, his hope is wrong,
    he is laid low, even the sight of him.
Is he not fierce when he is roused?
    Who then is able to stand before Me?
Who has confronted Me that I should repay?[a]
Everything under heaven belongs to Me.

“I will not keep silent about his limbs,
    or his might or the grace of his arrangement.
Who can strip off his outer garment?
    Who can penetrate his double armor?
Who can open the doors of his face,
    ringed with fearsome teeth?
His rows of shields are his pride,
    shut up closely as with tight seal;
each so close to the next,
    that no air can pass between.
They are joined one to another;
    they clasp each other and cannot be separated.

10 “He sneezes out flashes of light;
    his eyes are like the eyelids of dawn.
11 Out of his mouth go flames,
    sparks of fire shoot out.
12 Smoke pours from his nostrils,
    as a boiling pot over burning reeds.
13 His breath sets coals ablaze
    and flames dart from his mouth.

14 “Strength resides in his neck;
    dismay runs before him.
15 The folds of his flesh are tightly joined;
    they are firm on him, immovable.
16 His heart is hard as rock,
    hard as a lower millstone.

17 “When he rises up, the mighty are afraid;
    at his crashing they retreat.
18 A sword that reaches him has no effect—
    nor with a spear, dart, or javelin.
19 He regards iron as straw,
    bronze as rotten wood.
20 Arrows do not make him flee;
    sling stones become like chaff to him.
21 A club is regarded as stubble;
    he laughs at the rattling of a lance.

22 “His undersides are jagged potsherds,
    leaving a trail like a threshing sledge in mud.
23 He makes the deep boil like a cauldron
    and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment.
24 He leaves a shining wake behind him;
    one would think the deep had white hair.
25 Nothing on dry land is his equal—
    a creature without fear.
26 He sees every haughty thing;
    he is king over all who are proud.”
