1Hast you not seen him? and have you not wondered at the things said of him? Do you not fear because preparation has been made by me? for who is there that resists me?
2Or who will resist me, and abide, since the whole world under heaven is mine?
3I will not be silent because of him: though because of his power one shall pity his antagonist.
4Who will open the face of his garment? and who can enter within the fold of his breastplate?
5Who will open the doors of his face? terror is round about his teeth.
6His inwards are as brazen plates, and the texture of his skin as a smyrite stone.
7One part cleaves fast to another, and the air can’t come between them.
8They will remain united each to the other: they are closely joined, and can’t be separated.
9At his sneezing a light shines, and his eyes are as the appearance of the morning star.
10Out of his mouth proceed as it were burning lamps, and as it were hearths of fire are cast abroad.
11Out of his nostrils proceeds smoke of a furnace burning with fire of coals.
12His breath is as live coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth.
13And power is lodged in his neck, before him destruction runs.
14The flesh also of his body is joined together: if one pours violence upon him, he shall not be moved.
15His heart is firm as a stone, and it stands like an unyielding anvil.
16And when he turns, he is a terror to the four-footed wild beasts which leap upon the earth.
17If spears should come against him, men will effect nothing, either with the spear or the breast-plate.
18For he considers iron as chaff, and brass as rotten wood.

19The bow of brass shall not would him, he deems a slinger as grass.
20Mauls are counted as stubble; and he laughs to scorn the waving of the firebrand.
21His lair is formed of sharp points; and all the gold of the sea under him is an immense quantity of clay.
22He makes the deep boil like a brazen cauldron; and he regards the sea as a pot of ointment,
23and the lowest part of the deep as a captive: he reckons the deep as his range.
24There is nothing upon the earth like to him, formed to be sported with by my angels.
25He beholds every high thing: and he is king of all that are in the waters.
