Job 41: There be Dragon Snails here!!!
Job Part 41 of 42
1 “Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook,
I suppose it depends on the bait I use.
or press down his tongue with a cord?
If I could get close enough, safely.
2 Can you put a rope into his nose,
or pierce his jaw through with a hook?
If it tranquilised him first, yes.
3 Will he make many petitions to you,
or will he speak soft words to you?
Ewwwwww, I hope not.
4 Will he make a covenant with you,
that you should take him for a servant forever?
5 Will you play with him as with a bird?
Or will you bind him for your girls?
Why don’t you ask reasonable questions instead of this crap?
6 Will traders barter for him?
Will they part him among the merchants?
7 Can you fill his skin with barbed irons,
or his head with fish spears?
If I had enough, then quite possibly yes.
8 Lay your hand on him.
Remember the battle, and do so no more.
Stick your finger in your ear and go ting a ling a loo?
9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain.
Won’t one be cast down even at the sight of him?
10 None is so fierce that he dare stir him up.
Who then is he who can stand before me?
Whatever this behemoth is, if it’s real, I can stand before it. I may not last long, but I can stand. You on the other hand are easy. You aren’t real. I’d be wasting my time standing before something that doesn’t exist. Then again, I’m talking to you and you don’t exist.
11 Who has first given to me, that I should repay him?
Everything under the heavens is mine.
No it’s not. Would you take away my child’s teddy bear? Do you claim ownership of children’s toys?
12 “I will not keep silence concerning his limbs,
nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.
13 Who can strip off his outer garment?
Who shall come within his jaws?
14 Who can open the doors of his face?
Around his teeth is terror.
15 Strong scales are his pride,
shut up together 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, so that they can’t be pulled apart.
18 His sneezing flashes out light.
Only if you are relying on candles placed close to the beast. Or is this just another example proving that we’ve grown out of needing a skyfairy? We have electricity, so this has no meaning and neither do you.
His eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
19 Out of his mouth go burning torches.
Sparks of fire leap forth.
Dragons be here!!!
20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goes,
as of a boiling pot over a fire of reeds.
21 His breath kindles coals.
A flame goes forth from his mouth.
22 There is strength in his neck.
Terror dances before him.
23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together.
They are firm on him.
They can’t be moved.
24 His heart is as firm as a stone,
yes, firm as the lower millstone.
25 When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid.
They retreat before his thrashing.
The mighty have never been afraid of dragons. They’ve never seen one.
26 If one attacks him with the sword, it can’t prevail;
nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.
You haven’t watched enough movies then. I suggest something in 3D.
27 He counts iron as straw;
and brass as rotten wood.
28 The arrow can’t make him flee.
Sling stones are like chaff to him.
29 Clubs are counted as stubble.
He laughs at the rushing of the javelin.
A laughing dragon?
30 His undersides are like sharp potsherds,
leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge.
31 He makes the deep to boil like a pot.
He makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
32 He makes a path shine after him.
A Dragon Snail?
One would think the deep had white hair.
33 On earth there is not his equal,
that is made without fear.
34 He sees everything that is high.
He is king over all the sons of pride.”
Fossils or it ain’t true.
