1 ! By the greatnes of this monstre Liuiathan God sheweth his greatnes, and his power, which nothing can resist.
1 a If none dare stand against a whale, which is but a creature, who is able to compare with God, the Creator?
2 b Who hathe taught me to accomplish my worke?
3 c The partes, and members of the whale.
4 d That is, who dare pul of his skinne?
4 e Who dare put a bridel in his mouth?
5 f Who dare loke in his mouth?
9 g That is, casteth out flames of fyre.
13 h Nothing is peinful or hard vnto him.
21 i His skinne is so hard that he lieth with as great ease on the stones as in the myre.
22 k Ether he maketh the sea to seme as it boiled by his wallowing, or els he spowteth water in suche abundance, as it wolde seme that the sea boyled.
23 l That is, a white froth, & shinging streame before him.
25 m He despiseth all other beasts & monsters, & is the proudest of all others.
