fantastic rays

Welcome.  This week let’s begin reading about the leviathan.

Job 40:1  Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie his tongue with a rope?  Can you put a cord through
his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook?

Job 41:5  Can you make a pet of him like a bird or put him on a leash for your girls?

Job 41:7  Can you fill his hide with harpoons or his head with fishing spears?

Job 41:14  Who dares open the doors of his mouth, ringed about with his fearsome teeth?  His back has
rows of shields tightly sealed together;  each is so close to the next that no air can pass between.  They are
joined fast to one another;  they cling together and cannot be parted.

Job 41:22  Strength resides in his neck;  dismay goes before him.  The folds of his flesh are tightly joined,
they are firm and immovable.

Job 41:24  His chest is hard like a rock, hard as a millstone.

Job 41:30  His undersides are jagged potsherds (broken pottery fragments) leaving a trail in the mud like a
threshing sledge.

From the descriptions above, the leviathan seems to be similar to an alligator or crocodile.  But the 
leviathan has a rock hard chest.  The alligator and crocodile has a soft belly and chest.  In fact, dolphins
with their sharp fin can attack alligators and crocodiles and split open their bellies.

Next week, we will continue reading the description of the leviathan.  You may be able to identify him from the
picture above.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
