Job 40:1,41:1-11

40And the Lord said to Job:

41*‘Can you draw out Leviathan* with a fish-hook,
   or press down its tongue with a cord?
2 Can you put a rope in its nose,
   or pierce its jaw with a hook?
3 Will it make many supplications to you?
   Will it speak soft words to you?
4 Will it make a covenant with you
   to be taken as your servant for ever?
5 Will you play with it as with a bird,
   or will you put it on a leash for your girls?
6 Will traders bargain over it?
   Will they divide it up among the merchants?
7 Can you fill its skin with harpoons,
   or its head with fishing-spears?
8 Lay hands on it;
   think of the battle; you will not do it again!
9 *Any hope of capturing it* will be disappointed;
   were not even the gods* overwhelmed at the sight of it?
10 No one is so fierce as to dare to stir it up.
   Who can stand before it?*
11 Who can confront it* and be safe?*
   —under the whole heaven, who?*
