Of God's great power

JOB. he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.

20 Surely the mountains 'bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. 21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.

22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.


23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw

Jordan into his mouth.

13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?

14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. 15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

6 Shall thy companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears ?

9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain : shall not one be cast down even at the

22 În his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.

23 ƒ The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.

24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.

25 When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid by reason of breakings they purify themselves.

26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.
