Psalms 104:26

26 There do ships go: leviathan, That Thou hast formed to play in it.

Genesis 1:24-31

24 And God saith, `Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind:' and it is so. 25 And God maketh the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, and God seeth that it is good.
26 And God saith, `Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.' 27 And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them. 28 And God blesseth them, and God saith to them, `Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over every living thing that is creeping upon the earth.'
29 And God saith, `Lo, I have given to you every herb sowing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree sowing seed, to you it is for food; 30 and to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heavens, and to every creeping thing on the earth, in which is breath of life, every green herb is for food:' and it is so.
31 And God seeth all that He hath done, and lo, very good; and there is an evening, and there is a morning—day the sixth.

Job 40:15

15 Lo, I pray thee, Behemoth, that I made with thee: Grass as an ox he eateth.

Job 41:1-34

1 Dost thou draw leviathan with an angle? And with a rope thou lettest down—his tongue? 2 Dost thou put a reed in his nose? And with a thorn pierce his jaw? 3 Doth he multiply unto thee supplications? Doth he speak unto thee tender things? 4 Doth he make a covenant with thee? Dost thou take him for a servant age-during? 5 Dost thou play with him as a bird? And dost thou bind him for thy damsels? 6 (Feast upon him do companions, They divide him among the merchants!) 7 Dost thou fill with barbed irons his skin? And with fish-spears his head? 8 Place on him thy hand, Remember the battle—do not add! 9 Lo, the hope of him is found a liar, Also at his appearance is not one cast down? 10 None so fierce that he doth awake him, And who is he before Me stationeth himself?
11 Who hath brought before Me and I repay? Under the whole heavens it is mine. 12 I do not keep silent concerning his parts, And the matter of might, And the grace of his arrangement. 13 Who hath uncovered the face of his clothing? Within his double bridle who doth enter? 14 The doors of his face who hath opened? Round about his teeth are terrible. 15 A pride—strong ones of shields, Shut up—a close seal. 16 One unto another they draw nigh, And air doth not enter between them. 17 One unto another they adhere, They stick together and are not separated. 18 His sneezings cause light to shine, And his eyes are as the eyelids of the dawn. 19 Out of his mouth do flames go, sparks of fire escape. 20 Out of his nostrils goeth forth smoke, As a blown pot and reeds. 21 His breath setteth coals on fire, And a flame from his mouth goeth forth. 22 In his neck lodge doth strength, And before him doth grief exult. 23 The flakes of his flesh have adhered—Firm upon him—it is not moved. 24 His heart is firm as a stone, Yea, firm as the lower piece. 25 From his rising are the mighty afraid, From breakings they keep themselves free. 26 The sword of his overtaker standeth not, Spear—dart—and lance. 27 He reckoneth iron as straw, brass as rotten wood. 28 The son of the bow doth not cause him to flee, Turned by him into stubble are stones of the sling. 29 As stubble have darts been reckoned, And he laugheth at the shaking of a javelin. 30 Under him are sharp points of clay, He spreadeth gold on the mire. 31 He causeth to boil as a pot the deep, The sea he maketh as a pot of ointment. 32 After him he causeth a path to shine, One thinketh the deep to be hoary. 33 There is not on the earth his like, That is made without terror. 34 Every high thing he doth see, He is king over all sons of pride.

Isaiah 27:1

1 In that day lay a charge doth Jehovah, With his sword—the sharp, and the great, and the strong, On leviathan—a fleeing serpent, And on leviathan—a crooked serpent, And He hath slain the dragon that is in the sea.

Job 40:15-24

15 Lo, I pray thee, Behemoth, that I made with thee: Grass as an ox he eateth. 16 Lo, I pray thee, his power is in his loins, And his strength in the muscles of his belly. 17 He doth bend his tail as a cedar, The sinews of his thighs are wrapped together, 18 His bones are tubes of brass, His bones are as a bar of iron. 19 He is a beginning of the ways of God, His Maker bringeth nigh his sword; 20 For food do mountains bear for him, And all the beasts of the field play there. 21 Under shades he lieth down, In a secret place of reed and mire. 22 Cover him do shades, with their shadow, Cover him do willows of the brook. 23 Lo, a flood oppresseth—he doth not haste, He is confident though Jordan Doth come forth unto his mouth. 24 Before his eyes doth one take him, With snares doth one pierce the nose?
