Job 41

Job 41…”Can you pull in Leviathan with a fishhook or tie down its tongue with a rope?” A large description is here given of the Leviathan (sea creature), specifically the difficulty and danger of taming it. It is shown throughout Job 41 that God made this creature and is sovereign over it. From the several parts of him, his face, teeth, scales, eyes, mouth and neck, flesh and heart, to the terrible things said of him, and ascribed to him. God questions whether Job has this authority over creatures. This is a good reminder to us, that our Lord is mighty and sovereign, and that we aren’t Him.
