New International Version
Strength resides in its neck; dismay goes before it.
King James Bible
In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.
Darby Bible Translation
In his neck lodgeth strength, and terror danceth before him.
World English Bible
There is strength in his neck. Terror dances before him.
Young's Literal Translation
In his neck lodge doth strength, And before him doth grief exult.
Job 41:22 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
In his neck remaineth strength - Literally, "strength has its dwelling in his neck." The neck is the seat of strength of most animals; but the head and shoulders must be here meant, as the crocodile has no neck, being shaped nearly like a lizard.
And sorrow is turned into joy before him - ולפניו תדוץ דאבה ulephanaiv taduts deabah; "And destruction exulteth before him." This is as fine an image as can well be conceived. It is in the true spirit of poetry, the legitimate offspring of the genie createur. Our translation is simply insignificant.

is turned into joy. Heb. rejoiceth
It is here proposed to show, that every incumbent duty ought, in suitable circumstances, to be engaged to in the exercise of Covenanting. The law and covenant of God are co-extensive; and what is enjoined in the one is confirmed in the other. The proposals of that Covenant include its promises and its duties. The former are made and fulfilled by its glorious Originator; the latter are enjoined and obligatory on man. The duties of that Covenant are God's law; and the demands of the law are all made …
John Cunningham—The Ordinance of Covenanting
Whether the Devil Can Induce Man to Sin of Necessity?
How Sowers of Strifes and Peacemakers are to be Admonished.
Whether Wisdom Should be Reckoned among the Gifts of the Holy Ghost?
Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth.
The folds of its flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable.
