Mysterious Beasts in the Bible

I think some of the animals the Bible mentions are quite interesting. Take, for instance, the mention of a unicorn in Psalm 22:21.

A unicorn?!

Hey, those legends had to have come from something. And while man’s imagination has come up with many a strange jabberwocky, the Bible can be trusted on these points, being the inspired Word of God.

And that’s why it’s so interesting.

This morning, as part of my scheduled reading, I was assigned Job 41. This chapter’s detailed description of Leviathan—a mysterious titan of the deep—always leaves me breathless.

This monster has airtight scales that no human weapon can puncture (vv. 16, 26). He kindles coals with his breath and flames come out of his mouth (vv. 21). He is unimaginably powerful—yet gracefully formed, with eyes like the morning (vv. 12, 18). On this earth, there is nothing like him (vv. 33).

Too bad there aren’t any at the zoo.

At any rate, God’s creation is incredible…but not to be worshiped before its Creator. During this Holy Week, don’t forget what He did for us!

Have a blessed day, friends!
