Job Chapter 40

-; . 1 {S} Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said:
, - ; . 2 Shall he that reproveth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with God, let him answer it. {P}
-; . 3 {S} Then Job answered the LORD, and said:
, ; , -. 4 Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer Thee? I lay my hand upon my mouth.
, ; , . 5 Once have I spoken, but I will not answer again; yea, twice, but I will proceed no further. {P}
- -, ( ); . 6 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
- ; , . 7 Gird up thy loins now like a man; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto Me.
, ; , . 8 Wilt thou even make void My judgment? Wilt thou condemn Me, that thou mayest be justified?
- ; , . 9 Or hast thou an arm like God? And canst thou thunder with a voice like Him?
; . 10 Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency, and array thyself with glory and beauty.
, ; -, . 11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath; and look upon every one that is proud, and abase him.
-, ; . 12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
; , . 13 Hide them in the dust together; bind their faces in the hidden place.
- : - . 14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
- , - ; , . 15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
- ; , . 16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the stays of his body.
-; . 17 He straineth his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together.
, ; , . 18 His bones are as pipes of brass; his gristles are like bars of iron.
, -; , . 19 He is the beginning of the ways of God; He only that made him can make His sword to approach unto him.
-, -; - , -. 20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, and all the beasts of the field play there.
- -- . 21 He lieth under the lotus-trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
; , -. 22 The lotus-trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
, ; , - -. 23 Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; he is confident, though the Jordan rush forth to his mouth.
; , -. 24 Shall any take him by his eyes, or pierce through his nose with a snare?
; , . 25 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fish-hook? or press down his tongue with a cord?
; , . 26 Canst thou put a ring into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a hook?
, ; - . 27 Will he make many supplications unto thee? or will he speak soft words unto thee?
; , . 28 Will he make a covenant with thee, that thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever?
-, ; , . 29 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
, ; , . 30 Will the bands of fishermen make a banquet of him? Will they part him among the merchants?
; . 31 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish-spears?
- ; , -. 32 Lay thy hand upon him; think upon the battle, thou wilt do so no more.
