Other Versions41 Job 41

1Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? 2Canst thou put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook? 3Will he make many supplications unto thee? Or will he speak soft words unto thee? 4Will he make a covenant with thee, That thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever? 5Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? 6Will the bands of fishermen make traffic of him? Will they part him among the merchants? 7Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons, Or his head with fish-spears? 8Lay thy hand upon him; Remember the battle, and do so no more. 9Behold, the hope of him is in vain: Will not one be cast down even at the sight of him? 10None is so fierce that he dare stir him up; Who then is he that can stand before me? 11Who hath first given unto me, that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. 12I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, Nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame. 13Who can strip off his outer garment? Who shall come within his jaws? 14Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror. 15His strong scales are his pride, Shut up together as with a close seal. 16One is so near to another, That no air can come between them. 17They are joined one to another; They stick together, so that they cannot be sundered. 18His sneezings flash forth light, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19Out of his mouth go burning torches, And sparks of fire leap forth. 20Out of his nostrils a smoke goeth, As of a boiling pot and burning rushes. 21His breath kindleth coals, And a flame goeth forth from his mouth. 22In his neck abideth strength, And terror danceth before him. 23The flakes of his flesh are joined together: They are firm upon him; they cannot be moved. 24His heart is as firm as a stone; Yea, firm as the nether millstone. 25When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: By reason of consternation they are beside themselves. 26If one lay at him with the sword, it cannot avail; Nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft. 27He counteth iron as straw, And brass as rotten wood. 28The arrow cannot make him flee: Sling-stones are turned with him into stubble. 29Clubs are counted as stubble: He laugheth at the rushing of the javelin. 30His underparts are like sharp potsherds: He spreadeth as it were a threshing-wain upon the mire. 31He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: He maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. 32He maketh a path to shine after him; One would think the deep to be hoary. 33Upon earth there is not his like, That is made without fear. 34He beholdeth everything that is high: He is king over all the sons of pride.

42 Job 42

1Then Job answered Jehovah, and said, 2I know that thou canst do all things, And that no purpose of thine can be restrained. 3Who is this that hideth counsel without knowledge? Therefore have I uttered that which I understood not, Things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 5I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear; But now mine eye seeth thee: 6Wherefore I abhor myself , And repent in dust and ashes.

7And it was so, that, after Jehovah had spoken these words unto Job, Jehovah said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends; for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. 8Now therefore, take unto you seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt-offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you; for him will I accept, that I deal not with you after your folly; for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. 9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as Jehovah commanded them: and Jehovah accepted Job.

10And Jehovah turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: and Jehovah gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him concerning all the evil that Jehovah had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one a ring of gold. 12So Jehovah blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: And he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses. 13He had also seven sons and three daughters. 14And he called the name of the first, Jemimah: and the name of the second, Keziah; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch. 15And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. 16And after this Job lived a hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations. 17So Job died, being old and full of days.Other Versions
