Job 41

Leviathan

I have no idea whether or not this Leviathan is real….

But what I do know, is that it’s a powerful creature, similar to the Behemoth.

The Leviathan is a creature that is greater than all others.

33 Nothing on earth is its equal—
a creature without fear.
34 It looks down on all that are haughty;
it is king over all that are proud.”

It is a creature that man cannot control.

1 “Can you pull in Leviathan with a fishhook
or tie down its tongue with a rope?
2 Can you put a cord through its nose
or pierce its jaw with a hook?
3 Will it keep begging you for mercy?
Will it speak to you with gentle words?
4 Will it make an agreement with you
for you to take it as your slave for life?

8 If you lay a hand on it,
you will remember the struggle and never do it again!
9 Any hope of subduing it is false;
the mere sight of it is overpowering.

But it’s a creature that God has created.  If God can control it….who are we as mere humans in the presence of God?

10 No one is fierce enough to rouse it.
Who then is able to stand against me?
11 Who has a claim against me that I must pay?
Everything under heaven belongs to me.
