Is The Leviathan The Dracorex?

(Job 41:1 HRB)  Can you draw out the leviathan with a hook, or hold down his tongue with a cord?

(Job 41:2 HRB)  Can you put a reed rope into his nose, or pierce his jaw with a thorn?

(Job 41:3 HRB)  Will he multiply pleas for help to you; or will he speak soft words to you?

(Job 41:4 HRB)  Will he cut a covenant with you; will you take him for a slave forever?

(Job 41:5 HRB)  Will you play with him as with a bird; or will you tie him up for your maidens?

(Job 41:6 HRB)  Shall your partners bargain over him; shall they divide him among the merchants?

(Job 41:7 HRB)  Can you fill his skin with barbs, or his head with fishing spears?

(Job 41:8 HRB)  Put your hand on him; remember the battle; you will not do it again!

(Job 41:9 HRB)  Behold, his hope has been made false; will he not be cast down at the sight of him?

(Job 41:10 HRB)  None is so fierce as to dare to stir him up. Who then is able to stand before Me?

(Job 41:11 HRB)  Who has gone before Me that I should repay? All under the heavens, it is Mine!

(Job 41:12 HRB)  I will not keep silent as to his limbs, or the matter of his powers, or the grace of his frame.

(Job 41:13 HRB)  Who can take off the face of his covering; who can come with his double bridle?

(Job 41:14 HRB)  Who can pry open the doors of his face? Terror is all around his teeth.

(Job 41:15 HRB)  The rows of shields are his pride, shut up with a tight seal;

(Job 41:16 HRB)  one is so near to another that no air can come between them;

(Job 41:17 HRB)  they are joined to one another; they clasp each other, so that they cannot be separated.

(Job 41:18 HRB)  His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are as the eyelids of the dawn.

(Job 41:19 HRB)  Out of his mouth go burning torches; sparks of fire fly out.

(Job 41:20 HRB)  Smoke goes out of his nostrils like a boiling pot fired by reeds.

(Job 41:21 HRB)  His breath kindles coals and the flame goes out from his mouth.

(Job 41:22 HRB)  Strength abides in his neck and terror dances before him.

(Job 41:23 HRB)  The folds of flesh cleave together, cast firm on him; he cannot be moved.

(Job 41:24 HRB)  His heart is cast hard as a stone, even cast hard as a piece of a lower millstone.

(Job 41:25 HRB)  The mighty are afraid from his arising; from the crashings they miss the way.

(Job 41:26 HRB)  The sword overtakes him, but will not hold firm, nor the spear, the dart, or the javelin.

(Job 41:27 HRB)  He counts iron as straw, bronze as rotten wood.

(Job 41:28 HRB)  A son of a bow cannot make him flee; slingstones are turned to stubble by him;

(Job 41:29 HRB)  darts are counted as stubble; he laughs at the shaking of a javelin.

(Job 41:30 HRB)  Points of potsherds are under him; he spreads sharp marks on the mire.

(Job 41:31 HRB)  He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a pot of ointment;

(Job 41:32 HRB)  he makes a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be gray headed.

(Job 41:33 HRB)  There is nothing like him on earth, one made without fear.

(Job 41:34 HRB)  He beholds all high things; he is king over all the sons of pride.
