In his neck strength shall dwell, and want goeth before his face.

The members of his flesh cleave one to another: he shall send lightnings against him, and they shall not be carried to another place.
||cor eius indurabitur quasi lapis et stringetur quasi malleatoris incus
His heart shall be as hard as a stone, and as firm as a smith's anvil,
||cum sublatus fuerit timebunt angeli et territi purgabuntur

||cum adprehenderit eum gladius subsistere non poterit neque hasta neque torax
When a sword shall lay at him, it shall not be able to hold, nor a spear, nor a breastplate.

||post eum lucebit semita aestimabit abyssum quasi senescentem
A path shall shine after him, he shall esteem the deep as growing old.
||non est super terram potestas quae conparetur ei qui factus est ut nullum timeret
There is no power upon earth that can be compared with him who was made to fear no one,
||omne sublime videt ipse est rex super universos filios superbiae
He beholdeth every high thing, he is king over all the children of pride.
