The Lord’s Challenge Continues

41 "Can you catch Leviathan with a hook or put a noose around its jaw?H4900H3882H2443H3956H2256H8257 2Can you tie it with a rope through the nose or pierce its jaw with a spike?H7760H100H639H5344H3895H2336 3Will it beg you for mercy or implore you for pity?H7235H8469H1696H7390 4Will it agree to work for you, to be your slave for life?H3772H1285H3947H5650H5769 5Can you make it a pet like a bird, or give it to your little girls to play with?H7832H6833H7194H5291 6Will merchants try to buy it to sell it in their shops?H2271H3739H2673H3669 7Will its hide be hurt by spears or its head by a harpoon?H4390H5785H7905H7218H1709H6767 8If you lay a hand on it, you will certainly remember the battle that follows. You won't try that again!H7760H3709H2142H4421H3254 9No, it is useless to try to capture it. The hunter who attempts it will be knocked down.H8431H3576H2904H4758 10And since no one dares to disturb it, who then can stand up to me?H393H5782H5782H3320H6440 11Who has given me anything that I need to pay back? Everything under heaven is mine.H6923H7999H8064 12"I want to emphasize Leviathan's limbs and its enormous strength and graceful form.H2790H907H1369H1697H2433H6187 13Who can strip off its hide, and who can penetrate its double layer of armor?H1540H6440H3830H935H3718H7448 14Who could pry open its jaws? For its teeth are terrible!H6605H1817H6440H8127H367H5439 15Its scales are like rows of shields tightly sealed together.H4043H650H1346H5462H6862H2368 16They are so close together that no air can get between them.H259H5066H259H7307H935 17Each scale sticks tight to the next. They interlock and cannot be penetrated.H1692H376H251H3920H6504 18"When it sneezes, it flashes light! Its eyes are like the red of dawn.H5846H216H1984H5869H6079H7837 19Lightning leaps from its mouth; flames of fire flash out.H6310H1980H3940H3590H784H4422 20Smoke streams from its nostrils like steam from a pot heated over burning rushes.H5156H3318H6227H5301H1731H100 21Its breath would kindle coals, for flames shoot from its mouth.H5315H3857H1513H3851H3318H6310 22"The tremendous strength in Leviathan's neck strikes terror wherever it goes.H6677H3885H5797H1670H1750H6440 23Its flesh is hard and firm and cannot be penetrated.H4651H1320H1692H3332H4131 24Its heart is hard as rock, hard as a millstone.H3820H3332H68H3332H6400H8482 25When it rises, the mighty are afraid, gripped by terror.H7613H352H1481H7667H2398 26No sword can stop it, no spear, dart, or javelin.H2719H5381H6965H2595H4551H8302 27Iron is nothing but straw to that creature, and bronze is like rotten wood.H2803H1270H8401H5154H7539H6086 28Arrows cannot make it flee. Stones shot from a sling are like bits of grass.H1121H7198H1272H68H7050H2015H7179 29Clubs are like a blade of grass, and it laughs at the swish of javelins.H8455H2803H7179H7832H7494H3591 30Its belly is covered with scales as sharp as glass. It plows up the ground as it drags through the mud.H2303H2789H7502H2742H2916 31"Leviathan makes the water boil with its commotion. It stirs the depths like a pot of ointment.H4688H7570H5518H7760H3220H4841 32The water glistens in its wake, making the sea look white.H5410H215H310H2803H8415H7872 33Nothing on earth is its equal, no other creature so fearless.H6083H4915H6213H1097H2844 34Of all the creatures, it is the proudest. It is the king of beasts."H7200H1364H4428H1121H7830
