He is a king over all the children of pride

1 Canst thou draw out leviathan (לִוְיָתָן) with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?
2 Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?
4 Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?
5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?
7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
8 Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

Leviathan's limbs have enormous strength and graceful form. His scales are his pride. He is made without fear.

9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? Jer 50, 44.
10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? Exo 19, 5. Deu 10, 14. Psa 24, 1.
11 Who hath prevented me, that I should repay [him? whatsoever is] under the whole heaven is mine.
12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.
13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?
14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.
15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.
16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
17 They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.
18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.
20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.
21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.
23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.
24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.
25 When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.
26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.
27 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.
28 The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.
29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.
30 Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire.
31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.
32 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.
33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.
34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

In that day the LORD with his strong sword shall punish leviathan

1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan (לִוְיָתָן) the piercing serpent, even leviathan (לִוְיָתָן) that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. Job 26, 13. Rev 19, 20.
12 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem. Isa 2, 2. Eze 20, 40.

Leviathan, whom Thou hast made to play in the sea

24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psa 33, 5. Psa 92, 5.
25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. Srh 43, 27.
26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan (לִוְיָתָן), whom thou hast made to play therein. Job 41, 1.
27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season. Psa 145, 15.

12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. Exo 14, 21.
14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan (לִוְיָתָן) in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers. Exo 17, 5-6. Num 20, 11. Jos 3, 13.
16 The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.

7 Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
8 Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning. Job 41, 1.

  • Blue Letter Bible: לִוְיָתָן livyâthân, liv-yaw-thawn' — 1.leviathan, sea monster, dragon
    a. large aquatic animal
    b. perhaps the extinct dinosaur, plesiosaurus, exact meaning unknown
    Some think this to be a crocodile but from the description in Job 41:1-34 this is patently absurd. It appears to be a large fire breathing animal of some sort. Just as the bomardier beetle has an explosion producing mechanism, so the great sea dragon may have an explosive producing mechanism to enable it to be a real fire breathing dragon.
