Strength lodges in its neck, and despair runs before it. The folds of its flesh are tightly joined; they are firm on it, immovable. Its heart is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone.

It regards iron as straw and bronze as rotten wood. Arrows do not make it flee; slingstones become like chaff to it. A club is counted as a piece of straw; it laughs at the rattling of the lance.

It makes the deep boil like a cauldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment, It leaves a glistening wake behind it; one would think the deep had a head of white hair. The likes of it is not on earth, a creature without fear. It looks on every haughty being; it is king over all that are proud."
