1Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook? Or tie up his jaws with a cord?
2Can you put a rope into his nose, or pierce his jaw through with a hook?
3Will he make many pleas to you? Will he speak soft words to you?
4Will he make a covenant with you, that you should take him for a servant forever?
5Will you play with him as you would with a bird? Will you tie him up for your servant girls?
6Will the groups of fishermen bargain for him? Will they divide him up to trade among the merchants?
7Can you fill his hide with harpoons or his head with fishing spears?
8Put your hand on him just once, and you will remember the battle and do it no more.
9See, the hope of anyone who does that is a lie; will not anyone be thrown down to the ground just by the sight of him?
10None is so fierce that he dare stir Leviathan up; who, then, is he who can stand before me?
11Who has first given anything to me in order that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole sky is mine.
12I will not keep silent concerning Leviathan's legs, nor about the matter of his strength, nor about his graceful form.
13Who can strip off his outer covering? Who can penetrate his double armor?
14Who can open the doors of his face— ringed with his teeth, which are a terror?
15his back is made up of rows of shields, tight together as with a close seal.
16One is so near to another that no air can come between them.
17They are joined to each other; they stick together, so that they cannot be pulled apart.
18Light flashes out from his snorting; his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning dawn.

19Out of his mouth go burning torches, sparks of fire leap out.
20Out of his nostrils goes smoke like a boiling pot on a fire that has been fanned to be very hot.
21His breath kindles coals into flame; fires go out from his mouth.
22In his neck is strength, and terror dances in front of him.
23The folds of his flesh are joined together; they are firm on him; they cannot be moved.
24His heart is as hard as a stone— indeed, as hard as a lower millstone.
25When he raises himself up, even the gods become afraid; because of fear, they draw back.
26If a sword strikes him, it does nothing— and neither does a spear, an arrow, or any other pointed weapon.
27He thinks of iron as if it were straw, and of bronze as if it were rotten wood.
28An arrow cannot make him flee; to him sling stones become chaff.
29Clubs are regarded as straw; he laughs at the whirring flight of a spear.
30His lower parts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he leaves a spreading trail in the mud as if he were a threshing sledge.
31He makes the deep to foam up like a pot of boiling water; he makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
32He makes a shining wake behind him; one would think the deep had gray hair.
33On earth there is no equal to him, who has been made to live without fear.
34He sees everything that is proud; he is king over all the sons of pride.”
