- Canst thou drawe out Liuiathan with an hooke, and with a line which thou shalt cast downe vnto his tongue?
- Canst thou cast an hooke into his nose?
canst thou perce his iawes with an angle?
- Will he make many prayers vnto thee, or speake thee faire?
- Will hee make a couenant with thee?
and wilt thou take him as a seruant for euer?
- Wilt thou play with him as with a bird?
or wilt thou bynd him for thy maydes?
- Shall the companions baket with him?
shal they deuide him among the marchants?
- Canst thou fill the basket with his skinne?
or the fishpanier with his head?
- Lay thine hand vpon him: remember the battel, and do no more so.
- Behold, his hope is in vaine: for shal not one perish euen at the sight of him?
- None is so fearce that dare stirre him vp.
Who is he then that can stand before me?
- Who hath preuented mee that I shoulde make an ende?
Al vnder heauen is mine.
- I will not keepe silence concerning his partes, nor his power nor his comely proportion.
- Who can discouer the face of his garmet?
or who shall come to him with a double bridle?
- Who shall open the doores of his face?
his teeth are fearefull ronnd about.
- The maiestie of his scales is like strog shields, and are sure sealed.
- One is set to another, that no winde can come betweene them.
- One is ioyned to another: they sticke together, that they cannot be sundered.
- His niesings make the light to shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
- Out of his mouth go lampes, and sparkes of fire leape out.
- Out of his nostrels commeth out smoke, as out of a boyling pot or caldron.
- His breath maketh the coales burne: for a flame goeth out of his mouth.
- In his necke remayneth strength, & labour is reiected before his face.
- The members of his bodie are ioyned: they are strong in themselues, and cannot be mooued.
- His heart is as strong as a stone, & as hard as the nether milstone.
- The mightie are afrayd of his maiestie, and for feare they faint in themselues.
- When the sword doeth touch him, he will not rise vp, nor for the speare, dart nor habergeon.
- He esteemeth yron as strawe, and brasse as rotten wood.
- The archer canot make him flee: ye stones of the sling are turned into stubble vnto him:
- The dartes are counted as strawe: and hee laugheth at the shaking of the speare.
- Sharpe stones are vnder him, and he spreadeth sharpe things vpon the myre.
- He maketh the depth to boyle like a pot, and maketh the sea like a pot of oyntment.
- He maketh a path to shine after him: one would thinke the depth as an hoare head.
- In the earth there is none like him: hee is made without feare.
- He beholdeth al hie things: he is a King ouer all the children of pride.
