Chapter 40

1

 Moreover Jehovah answered Job, and said,

2

 Shall he that cavilleth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with God, let him answer it.

3

 Then Job answered Jehovah, 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, and I will not answer; Yea, twice, but I will proceed no further.

6

 Then Jehovah 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 annul 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 excellency and dignity; And array thyself with honor and majesty.

11

 Pour forth the overflowings of thine anger; 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 where they stand.

13

 Hide them in the dust together; Bind their faces in the hidden [place].

14

 Then will I also confess of thee That thine own right hand can save thee.

15

 Behold now, behemoth, which I made as well as thee; He eateth grass as an ox.

16

 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, And his force is in the muscles of his belly.

17

 He moveth his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together.

18

 His bones are [as] tubes of brass; His limbs are like bars of iron.

19

 He is the chief of the ways of God: He [only] that made him giveth him his sword.

20

 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the beasts of the field do play.

21

 He lieth under the lotus-trees, In the covert of the reed, and the fen.

22

 The lotus-trees cover him with their shade; The willows of the brook compass him about.

23

 Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; He is confident, though a Jordan swell even to his mouth.

24

 Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?

Job 41
