    The author of the Book of Job has God add to His use of the leviathan a portrait of the behemoth (another Hebrew word brought into English by the King-James translators). The two beasts are coupled in adjacent verses, both linked to God’s creativity, but also brought into being along side of man, as if the beasts are one with the bestial part. Leviathan. a transliterated Hebrew word (livyathan), meaning "twisted," "coiled." In Job , Revised Version, and marg. of Authorized Version, it denotes the dragon which, according to Eastern tradition, is an enemy of light; in the crocodile is meant; in Psalms it "denotes any large animal that moves by writhing or wriggling the body, the whale, the monsters of the .

    The Apocryphal Book of Enoch gives the following description of this monster's origins: 'And that day will two monsters be parted, one monster, a female named Leviathan in order to dwell in the abyss of the ocean over the fountains of water; and (the other), a male called Behemoth, which holds his chest in an invisible desert whose name is Dundayin, east of the garden of Eden.' - 1 .   Job’s acquaintance with a dinosaur is not far-fetched at all, given that the book of Job is set in a very early time of history. The point God makes in Job 41 is that Leviathan is under God’s sovereign control. Job had been questioning God (Job 26—31), but God turns the tables and uses the leviathan’s might to emphasize Job’s weakness.

    In this article we want to address two beasts who figure prominently in the story of Job—behemoth and leviathan. Outline of Job While the book of Job is generally treated as a general lesson as to why God permits evil, with Job representing all of mankind; the story may be treated equally well with Job picturing the nation of Israel. “What is the leviathan mentioned in Job, chapter 41?” In this section of the book of Job, there is a record of God’s interrogation of the patriarch of Uz. Job had criticized Jehovah, claiming that the Lord had been mistreating him (he had, in fact, suffered much).
