Remember your battle with him; you will not do [such an ill-advised thing] again! Behold, the hope of [his assailant] is disappointed; one is cast down even at the sight of him! No one is so fierce [and foolhardy] that he dares to stir up [the crocodile]; who then is he who can stand before Me [the beast's Creator, or dares to contend with Me]? Who has first given to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heavens is Mine. [Therefore, who can have a claim against God, God Who made the unmastered crocodile?] I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame. Who can strip off [the crocodile's] outer garment? [Who can penetrate his double coat of mail?] Who shall come within his jaws? Who can open the doors of his [lipless] mouth? His [extended jaws and bare] teeth are terrible round about. His scales are [the crocodile's] pride, [for his back is made of rows of shields] shut up together [as with] a tight seal; One is so near to another that no air can come between them. They are joined one to another; they stick together so that they cannot be separated. His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the [reddish] eyelids of the dawn. Out of his mouth go burning torches, [and] sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goes forth smoke, as out of a seething pot over a fire of rushes. His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes forth from his mouth. In [the crocodile's] neck abides strength, and terror dances before him. The folds of his flesh cleave together; they are firm upon him, and they cannot shake [when he moves]. His heart is as firm as a stone, indeed, as solid as a nether millstone. When [the crocodile] raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; because of terror and the crashing they are beside themselves. Even if one strikes at him with the sword, it cannot get any hold, nor does the spear, the dart, or the javelin. He counts iron as straw and bronze as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make [the crocodile] flee; slingstones are treated by him as stubble. Clubs [also] are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rushing and the rattling of the javelin. His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he spreads [grooves like] a threshing sledge upon the mire. He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a [foaming] pot of ointment. [His swift darting] makes a shining track behind him; one would think the deep to be hoary [with foam]. Upon earth there is not [the crocodile's] equal, a creature made without fear and he behaves fearlessly. He looks all mighty [beasts of prey] in the face [without terror]; he is monarch over all the sons of pride. [And now, Job, who are you who dares not arouse the unmastered crocodile, yet who dares resist Me, the beast's Creator, to My face? Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore, who can have a claim against God?]
