Jacque Harper, woodcut

Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
Shall the companions make a banquet of him? Shall they part him among the merchants?
Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? Or his head with fish spears?
Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

- Book of Job, Chapter 41
