His bones are as strong pieces of bronze; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the first of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lies under the shady trees, in the hiding of the reeds, and marsh. The shady trees cover him with their shade; the willows of the brook surround him. Behold, though a river rages, he fears not: he is confident though the Jordan rushes into his mouth. He takes it with his eyes: his nose pierces through snares.

Will he make a covenant with you? will you take him for a servant forever? Will you play with him as with a bird? or will you leash him for your maidens?

Lay your hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. Behold, the hope of subduing him is in vain: shall one not be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that would dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? Who has given to me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. I will not conceal his limbs, nor his power, nor his graceful proportion. Who can remove the face of his garment? or who can approach him with a double bridle? Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible all around. His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be parted. By his sneezings a light flashes, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goes smoke, as out of a boiling pot or caldron. His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth. In his neck remains strength, and sorrow is turned into dancing before him. The folds of his flesh are joined together: they are firm on him; they cannot be moved. His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the lower millstone. When he raises up himself, the mighty are afraid: because of his crashings they are beside themselves. The sword of him that reaches him cannot avail: neither the spear, the dart, nor the javelin. He regards iron as straw, and bronze as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee: clingstones with him are turned into stubble. Darts are counted as straw: he laughs at the threat of a javelin. His undersides are like sharp stones: he spreads sharp pointed marks upon the mire. He makes the deep boil like a pot: he makes the sea like a pot of ointment. He leaves a path shining after him; one would think the deep to have white hair. Upon earth there is not his like, which is made without fear. He beholds every high thing: he is a king over all the children of pride.
