1 41:10He is so cruel that no one is ready to go against him. Who then is able to keep his place before me?
2 41:11Who ever went against me, and got the better of me? There is no one under heaven!
3 41:12I will not keep quiet about the parts of his body, or about his power, and the strength of his frame.
4 41:13Who has ever taken off his outer skin? who may come inside his inner coat of iron?
5 41:14Who has made open the doors of his face? Fear is round about his teeth.
6 41:15His back is made of lines of plates, joined tight together, one against the other, like a stamp.
7 41:16One is so near to the other that no air may come between them.
8 41:17They take a grip of one another; they are joined together, so that they may not be parted.
9 41:18His sneezings give out flames, and his eyes are like the eyes of the dawn.
10 41:19Out of his mouth go burning lights, and flames of fire are jumping up.
11 41:20Smoke comes out of his nose, like a pot boiling on the fire.
12 41:21His breath puts fire to coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth.
13 41:22Strength is in his neck, and fear goes dancing before him.
14 41:23The plates of his flesh are joined together, fixed, and not to be moved.
15 41:24His heart is as strong as a stone, hard as the lower crushing-stone.
16 41:25When he gets ready for the fight, the strong are overcome with fear.
17 41:26The sword may come near him but is not able to go through him; the spear, or the arrow, or the sharp-pointed iron.
18 41:27Iron is to him as dry grass, and brass as soft wood.
19 41:28The arrow is not able to put him to flight: stones are no more to him than dry stems.
20 41:29A thick stick is no better than a leaf of grass, and he makes sport of the onrush of the spear.
21 41:30Under him are sharp edges of broken pots: as if he was pulling a grain-crushing instrument over the wet earth.
22 41:31The deep is boiling like a pot of spices, and the sea like a perfume-vessel.
23 41:32After him his way is shining, so that the deep seems white.
24 41:33On earth there is not another like him, who is made without fear.
25 41:34Everything which is high goes in fear of him; he is king over all the sons of pride.
