|New International Version (© 2011)|
When it rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before its thrashing.
King James Bible
When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.
American Standard Version
When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: By reason of consternation they are beside themselves.
Young's Literal Translation
From his rising are the mighty afraid, From breakings they keep themselves free.
Job 41:25 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
By reason of breakings they purify themselves - No version, either ancient or modern, appears to have understood this verse; nor is its true sense known. The Septuagint have, "When he turns himself, he terrifies all the quadrupeds on the earth." The original is short and obscure: משברים יתחטאו mishshebarim yithchattau. Mr. Good takes the plural termination ים im, from the first word, of which he makes the noun ים yam, the sea, and thus translates it, "They are confounded at the tumult of the sea." In this I can find no more light than in our own. Mr. Heath has, "For very terror they fall to the ground." The translations of it are as unsatisfactory as they are various. I shall give both the verses from Coverdale: -
His herte is as harde as a stone; and as fast as the stythye (anvil) that the hammer man smyteth upon: when he goeth the mightiest off all are afrayed, and the waives hevy. The dull swell in the waters proclaims his advance; and when this is perceived, the stout-hearted tremble.
