Job 40 ©
God challengeth an answer. Job humbleth himself. God calleth upon Job to shew by instances of power that he is able to save himself. God's great power is seen in the behemoth.
MOREOVER the LORD answered Job, and said,
¶Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
¶Behold now 1*behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth qgrass as an ox.
Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
2He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
He is the chief of the rways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
He lieth under the shady trees, in the *covert of the reed, and *fens.
The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook *compass him about.
4He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.
