      1  Of God's great power in the leviathan.

      The Leviathan, [livyÉthÉn,] described here, has been solidly
      proved by Bochart to denote the crocodile; and the description
      suits no other species of amphibious animals.  It is a species
      of lizard, with a two-edged tail, large oblong head, small but
      vivacious eyes, short legs, and triangular feet, the fore ones
      having four, and the hinder ones five toes, armed with strong,
      sharp claws.  Its length is usually about twenty feet, and its
      circumference about five feet; it has, in proportion to its
      size, the largest mouth of all monsters; moves both its jaws
      equally, the upper of which is armed with not less than forty,
      and the under with thirty-eight sharp, strong, and massy
      teeth; its voice is a loud, hollow growling, of the most
      terrific description; and is furnished with a coat of mail, so
      scaly and callous as to resist the force of a musket-ball in
      every part, except under the belly.  It is a natural
      inhabitant of the Nile, and other African and Asiatic rivers;
      is of enormous voracity and strength, as well as fleetness in
      swimming; attacks mankind and the largest animals with the
      most daring impetuosity; and when taken by means of a powerful
      net, will often overturn the boats that surround it.  Nothing
      that it once seizes can escape; and, shaking its prey to
      pieces, it is swallowed without mastication.
    
    - fish.

    VERSE 31
       When a large crocodile dives to the bottom, the violent
      agitation of the water may justly be compared to liquor
      boiling in a caldron; and his body being strongly impregnated
      with the scent of musk, the water is affected by it to a
      considerable distance.  In the oriental style, great rivers
      and lakes are called seas.

    VERSE 33
      There is no creature among terrestrial animals so thoroughly
      dangerous, so exceedingly strong, and so difficult to be
