40:1 ¶ And the Lord went on, and said to Job:
40:2 Shall he that contendeth with God be so easily silenced? surely he that reproveth God, ought to answer him.
40:3 ¶ Then Job answered the Lord, and said:
40:4 What can I answer, who hath spoken inconsiderately? I will lay my hand upon my mouth.
40:5 One thing I have spoken, which I wish I had not said: and another, to which I will add no more.
40:6 ¶ And the Lord answering Job out of the whirlwind, said:
40:7 Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and do thou tell me.
40:8 Wilt thou make void my judgment: and condemn me, that thou mayst be justified?
40:9 And hast thou an arm like God, and canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
40:10 Clothe thyself with beauty, and set thyself up on high, and be glorious, and put on goodly garments.
40:11 Scatter the proud in thy indignation, and behold every arrogant man, and humble him.
40:12 Look on all that are proud, and confound them, and crush the wicked in their place,
40:13 Hide them in the dust together, and plunge their faces into the pit.
40:14 Then I will confess that thy right hand is able to save thee.
40:15 ¶ Behold behemoth whom I made with thee, he eateth grass like an ox.
40:16 His strength is in his loins, and his force in the navel of his belly.
40:17 He setteth up his tail like a cedar, the sinews of his testicles are wrapped together.
40:18 His bones are like pipes of brass, his gristle like plates of iron.
40:19 He is the beginning of the ways of God, who made him, he will apply his sword.
40:20 To him the mountains bring forth grass: there all the beasts of the field shall play.
40:21 He sleepeth under the shadow, in the covert of the reed, and in moist places.
40:22 The shades cover his shadow, the willows of the brook shall compass him about.
40:23 Behold, he will drink up a river, and not wonder: and he trusteth that the Jordan may run into his mouth.
40:24 In his eyes as with a hook he shall take him, and bore through his nostrils with stakes.
