Job 41:10

10 Is he not too cruel for one to rouse him? Who then is he who can station himself before Me?

Job 40:1-24

1 So Yahweh answered Job and said: 2 Will one contending with Him Who Suffices admonish Him? The one reproving Eloah, let him answer it. 3 Then Job answered Yahweh and said, 4 Behold, I am slight; how can I reply to You? I place my hand upon my mouth. 5 I spoke once but shall not answer further, Twice, but I shall not continue. 6 So Yahweh answered Job from the tempest and said: 7 Belt up your loins then like a master; I shall ask of you, and you inform Me. 8 Indeed, would you ever quash My judgment? Would you condemn Me that you might be just? 9 Do you have an arm like El's? And can you thunder with a voice like His? 10 Ornament yourself then with pride and loftiness, And with splendor and honor you shall clothe yourself. 11 Scatter forth the ragings of your anger; Discern every proud one and abase him. 12 Discern every proud one and make him submit; Crush the wicked where they are. 13 Bury them in the soil together; Bind up their faces in the burial crypt. 14 Then even I Myself shall acclaim you, Because your right hand has brought salvation to you. 15 Behold now, the behemoth that I made as I did you; He eats grass like the ox. 16 Behold now his vigor in his waist, His virility in the muscles of his belly;" 17 He makes his tail taut like a cedar; The sinews of his awesome thighs are intertwined. 18 His bones are tubings of copper, His ribs like bars of iron. 19 He is the first of the ways of El; The One Who made him, He enclosed in him his sword. 20 Indeed the hills bear fodder for him, And all the wild animals of the field gambol there. 21 Under the lotuses he lies In the concealment of reeds and marsh. 22 The lotuses overshadow him for his shade; The oleanders of the watercourse surround him. 23 If the stream threatens he does not hurry away; He is trusting even if Jordan rushes forth up to his mouth. 24 Can anyone take him by his eyes Or pierce his nose with a trap?

Job 40:15-24

15 Behold now, the behemoth that I made as I did you; He eats grass like the ox. 16 Behold now his vigor in his waist, His virility in the muscles of his belly;" 17 He makes his tail taut like a cedar; The sinews of his awesome thighs are intertwined. 18 His bones are tubings of copper, His ribs like bars of iron. 19 He is the first of the ways of El; The One Who made him, He enclosed in him his sword. 20 Indeed the hills bear fodder for him, And all the wild animals of the field gambol there. 21 Under the lotuses he lies In the concealment of reeds and marsh. 22 The lotuses overshadow him for his shade; The oleanders of the watercourse surround him. 23 If the stream threatens he does not hurry away; He is trusting even if Jordan rushes forth up to his mouth. 24 Can anyone take him by his eyes Or pierce his nose with a trap?

Job 40:15

15 Behold now, the behemoth that I made as I did you; He eats grass like the ox.

Job 40:1-41:34

Job 41:1-34

1 Can you draw out the leviathan with a fishhook, Or hold down his tongue with a line? 2 Can you place a rush rope in his nose, Or pierce his cheek with a gaff? 3 Would he make many supplications to you, Or speak to you with tender words? 4 Would he contract a covenant with you That you may take him as a servant for the eon? 5 Can you sport with him as with a bird, Or tie him up for your maidens? 6 Would partners bargain over him That they may divide him up among traffickers? 7 Can you fill his skin with barbs Or his head with the fishing spear? 8 Place your palm on him; Remember the battle; you would certainly not do it again! 9 Behold, one's hope is proved a lie; Even at the sight of him one is hurled down. 10 Is he not too cruel for one to rouse him? Who then is he who can station himself before Me? 11 Who can confront Me and would fare well? Whatever is under the entire heavens, it is Mine. 12 I shall not keep silence about his constitution Or the matter of his grand mastery that is without appraisal. 13 Who has rolled back his surface garment? Who can enter through his double cuirass? 14 Who has opened the doors of his face? All around his teeth is dread. 15 His body is made of channels of shields, Closed by a constricting seal. 16 One to the other, they are so close That the wind cannot enter between them. 17 They are clung together each to its fellow; They seize each other and cannot be parted. 18 His sneezings make the light irradiate, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the dawn. 19 Flaming torches go out from his mouth; Darts of fire escape forth. 20 Out from his snorting nostrils smoke goes forth As from a steaming pannier or burning rushes. 21 His soul sets embers aflame, And a blaze goes forth from his mouth. 22 In his neck lodges strength, And consternation romps before him. 23 The flaps of his flesh cling together, Solidly set upon him; it is immovable. 24 His heart is solidly set like stone, Even solidly set like the nether grindstone. 25 At his lifting up, the subjectors shrink back; At his breaking forth, they recede. 26 Though the sword overtakes him, it does not avail, As also the spear, the dagger and the short arrow. 27 He reckons iron as crushed straw, Copper as rotten wood. 28 The son of the bow cannot make him run away; Sling stones are turned to straw for him. 29 The bludgeon is reckoned by him as straw, And he ridicules the whizzing of the dart. 30 His under parts are sharp pieces of shard; He strews spike marks on the mud. 31 He makes the shadowy deep boil like a pot; He makes the sea appear like foaming ointment. 32 Behind him he makes his track resplendent; One would reckon the abyss to be greyhaired. 33 There is no one on the soil comparable to him, Who was made to be without dismay. 34 He stares down on every haughty creature; He is king over every strutting beast.

Job 3:8

8 May those cursing the day revile it, Who are equipped to rouse the dragon.

Psalms 74:14

14 You Yourself bruised the heads of the dragon; You gave it as food to a people, to desert-tribes."

Job 41:1

1 Can you draw out the leviathan with a fishhook, Or hold down his tongue with a line?

Psalms 104:26

26 The sea monsters are going there, The dragon that You have formed to gambol in it."

Isaiah 27:1

1 In that day Yahweh will check over with His sword, holy and great and steadfast, on the dragon, the fugitive serpent, and on the dragon, the tortuous serpent, and He will kill the monster which is in the sea."

Job 41:1-34
