- "Can you draw out Levi'athan with a fishhook, or press down his tongue with a cord?
- Can you put a rope in his nose, or pierce his jaw with a hook?
- Will he make many supplications to you? Will he speak to you soft words?
- Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant for ever?
- Will you play with him as with a bird, or will you put him on leash for your maidens?
- Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants?
- Can you fill his skin with harpoons, or his head with fishing spears?
- Lay hands on him; think of the battle; you will not do it again!
- Behold, the hope of a man is disappointed; he is laid low even at the sight of him.
- No one is so fierce that he dares to stir him up. Who then is he that can stand before me?
- Who has given to me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is mine.
- "I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, or his mighty strength, or his goodly frame.
- Who can strip off his outer garment? Who can penetrate his double coat of mail?
- Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror.
- His back is made of rows of shields, shut up closely as with a seal.
- One is so near to another that no air can come between them.
- They are joined one to another; they clasp each other and cannot be separated.
- His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the dawn.
- Out of his mouth go flaming torches; sparks of fire leap forth.
- Out of his nostrils comes forth smoke, as from a boiling pot and burning rushes.
- His breath kindles coals, and a flame comes forth from his mouth.
- In his neck abides strength, and terror dances before him.
- The folds of his flesh cleave together, firmly cast upon him and immovable.
- His heart is hard as a stone, hard as the nether millstone.
- When he raises himself up the mighty are afraid; at the crashing they are beside themselves.
- Though the sword reaches him, it does not avail; nor the spear, the dart, or the javelin.
- He counts iron as straw, and bronze as rotten wood.
- The arrow cannot make him flee; for him slingstones are turned to stubble.
- Clubs are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rattle of javelins.
- His underparts are like sharp potsherds; he spreads himself like a threshing sledge on the mire.
- He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
- Behind him he leaves a shining wake; one would think the deep to be hoary.
- Upon earth there is not his like, a creature without fear.
- He beholds everything that is high; he is king over all the sons of pride."
- Then Job answered the LORD:
- "I know that thou canst do all things, and that no purpose of thine can be thwarted.
- 'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
- 'Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.'
- I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees thee;
- therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes."
- After the LORD had spoken these words to Job, the LORD said to Eli'phaz the Te'manite: "My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.
- Now therefore take seven bulls 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 I will accept his prayer not to deal with you according to your folly; for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has."
- So Eli'phaz the Te'manite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Na'amathite went and did what the LORD had told them; and the LORD accepted Job's prayer.
- And the LORD restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends; and the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
- Then came to him all his brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and ate bread with him in his house; and they showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him; and each of them gave him a piece of money and a ring of gold.
- And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; and he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses.
- He had also seven sons and three daughters.
- And he called the name of the first Jemi'mah; and the name of the second Kezi'ah; and the name of the third Ker'en-hap'puch.
- And in all the land there were no women so fair as Job's daughters; and their father gave them inheritance among their brothers.
- And after this Job lived a hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, four generations.
- And Job died, an old man, and full of days.
