Behemoth is a ‘sign’ for the final judgment and the binding of chaos. Because Leviathan is split in half, its other half will receive the same judgment. Behemoth will have its ‘head’ crushed –– a ‘shadow’ of what will happen to the Adversary.
has an outer garment of double armor, fearsome teeth, and his rows of scales are his pride. He sneezes fire and has black eyelids. His mouth shoots out flames and his breath sets coals on fire. Smoke pours from his nostrils like a pot burning reeds. His neck is strong, his flesh is folded and immovable, his heart is hard as a rock, hard as a millstone. His underside is like earth that leaves a trail in the mud. He leaves a shining wake behind him giving him the appearance of white hair.
Different versions of the Bible have differing words for verse 13. The Hebrew says “a watcher and a holy one descend.” There are three references to ‘watchers’ in the book of Daniel, and they are good ‘Watchers’ as opposed to the rebellious“Watchers” who descended from heaven in the days of Noah and had children with the daughters of men. Scholars believe these ‘watchers, holy ones’ that Nebuchadnezzar sees shows the influence of Babylonian gods recognizing the God of Israel as the Most High.
