@Track 
In case you start repeating yourself, check out the ferocious 

Job 40:15-24 King James Version
15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
24 He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

So, you are a Young Earth Creationist?

Between 1982 and 2014, successive surveys had found that between 40% and 47% of adults in the United States inclined to the view that "God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years"

And probably 99% of the DUP.

LOL.
Here's where it is today, in case you are curious:

Will traders bargain over him?

    Will they divide him up among the merchants?

I am doling the lines out slowly, rather than posting them all at once.

Make the audience wait for it.  :D

It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave it as food to the creatures of the desert.
