Apologists have pointed out that one of Job’s most contentious chapters appears to detail what they claim can only be described as depictions of dinosaurs.
Speaking in Job 40, God describes the Behemoth, the largest land animal he has ever created.
Job 40:15-24 / New International Version
15“Look at Behemoth,
which I made along with you
and which feeds on grass like an ox.
16 What strength it has in its loins,
what power in the muscles of its belly!
17 Its tail sways like a cedar;
the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.
18 Its bones are tubes of bronze,
its limbs like rods of iron.
19 It ranks first among the works of God,
yet its Maker can approach it with his sword.
20 The hills bring it their produce,
and all the wild animals play nearby.
21 Under the lotus plants it lies,
hidden among the reeds in the marsh.
22 The lotuses conceal it in their shadow;
the poplars by the stream surround it.
23 A raging river does not alarm it;
it is secure, though the Jordan should surge against its mouth.
24 Can anyone capture it by the eyes,
or trap it and pierce its nose?
Although the word “dinosaur” is not used in the Book of Job, apologists point out that the name did not exist before to the 19th century, and the description of the beast known as the Behemoth undoubtedly sounds a lot like a large plant-eating Sauropod. With reference to the gigantic animal’s tail, which sways like a seater, the scene is finished. In the Middle East, the seater is a huge tree.
