He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteththrough the proud (Rahab). Job 26:13By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed thecrooked serpent.
Psa 87:4
I will mention Rahab and Babylon to those who know me; behold, Philistiaand Tyre with Ethiopia; this
was born there.
Psa 89:10
You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one slain; You have scattered Yourenemies with Your mighty arm.

piercing thesea monster?Isa 51:10Was it not You drying up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who set thedepths of the sea a way for the redeemed to pass?Isa 51:11Yea, the ransomed of Jehovah shall return and come to Zion with singing,and everlasting joy

on their head; gladness and joy shall overtake
;sorrow and sighing shall flee.

.בהַרַ, which here also is translated by the lxxτὸ κῆτος, has been discussed already on Job_9:13. It is not meant of the turbulence of the sea, to whichץחַמָ is not appropriate, but of a sea monster, which, like the crocodile and thedragon, are become an emblem of Pharaoh and his power, asIsa_51:9.Without doubt,בהרdenotes a demoniacal monster, like the demons that shallbe destroyed at the end of the world, one of which is called by the Persians
, evil thought, another
, pride. This view is supported by Job_26:13, where one is not at liberty to determine the meaning byIsa_51:9, and to understandחַרִָ שחָנָ, likeןיִתַin that passage, of Egypt.
LeviathanLev-joined to tan-serpent...joined serpent
 Job 41:1
Can you draw out the leviathan with a hook, or hold down his tongue witha cord?Psa 74:12For God
my King of old, who works salvation in the midst of the land.Psa 74:13You broke the sea by Your strength; You burst the heads of sea-monstersin the waters.
Psa 74:14
You cracked open the heads of leviathan; You gave him to
be food
the people of the wilderness.Psa 104:25This
the sea, great and wide on both hands; there
creeping thingseven without number; living things, small and great.
Psa 104:26
There the ships go; You formed this great sea-animal to play in it.
Isa 27:1
In that day Jehovah shall visit the sea monster, the darting serpent, withHis great and fierce and strong sword; even on the sea monster, the twistingserpent; and He shall slay the monster that is in the sea. Job 3:7Behold, let that night be barren; let no joyful voice come in it.
 Job 3:8
Let those curse it who curse the day, those ready to stir up Leviathan. Job 3:9Let the stars of its twilight be dark; let it look for light, but have none, let itwait for eyelids of the dawn.
“Those who curse days” are magicians who know how to change days into
dies infausti
by their incantations. According to vulgar superstition, fromwhich the imagery of  Job_3:8is borrowed, there was a special art of excitingthe dragon, which is the enemy of sun and moon, against them both, so that,by its devouring them, total darkness prevails. The dragon is called in Hindu
; the Chinese, and also the natives of Algeria, even at the present daymake a wild tumult with drums and copper vessels when an eclipse of thesun or moon occurs, until the dragon will release his prey.(Note: On the dragon
, that swallows up sun and moon, vid., Pott, inthe Hallische Lit. Zeitschr. 1849, No. 199; on the custom of the Chinese,Käuffer,
Das chinesische Volk 
, S. 123. A similar custom among the nativesof Algeria I have read of in a newspaper (1856). Moreover, the cloudswhich conceal the sky the Indians represent as a serpent. It is
, thecloud-serpent, which Indra chases away when he divides the clouds withhis lightning. Vid., Westergaard in Weber's
Indischer Zeitschr 
. 1855, S.417.) Job wishes that this monster may swallow up the sun of his birth-day.
Leviathan OurobosYamIn Genesis 36 verse 24 and odd addition of information is given about Anah. He is said to havefound mules (yam) in the wilderness. The word for mules is yam which is translated in theTargum as terror. In the book of Jasher chapter 36 verse 29-35 it is told of 120 great andterrible animals that came out from the wilderness at the other side of the sea and came tothe place where the mules were. These animals were in the shape of men from the middledown and in the shape of different beasts from the middle up. The animals attacked Anah sohe fled to the city and related to his sons and brothers what happened to him.
Hab 3:8
Did Jehovah burn against rivers? Or
Your anger against the rivers? Or Your fury against the sea?
You ride on horses; Your chariots of salvation.
In the JPS footnotes on this verse it is written "Neharim=floods & Yam=Sea were marinemonsters vanquished by the LORD in hoary antiquity. On Yam see Ps 74:13; Job 7:12 Beingcalled both Yam & Nahar figures in early Canaanite literature.
Psa 74:13You broke the sea (yam) by Your strength; You burst the heads of sea-monsters (tanin) in the waters.Psa 74:14You cracked open the heads of leviathan; You gave him to
be food
for thepeople of the wilderness. Job 7:12Am I a sea (yam), or a sea-monster (tanin), that You set a watch over me?
 Job 26:12
With His power He quiets the sea (yam), and by His understanding Heshatters pride (rahab).
 Job 41:1Can you draw out the leviathan with a hook, or hold down his tongue with acord? Job 41:2Can you put a reed rope into his nose, or pierce his jaw with a thorn? Job 41:3Will he multiply pleas for help to you; or will he speak soft words to you? Job 41:4Will he cut a covenant with you; will you take him for a slave forever? Job 41:5Will you play with him as with a bird; or will you tie him up for yourmaidens? Job 41:6Shall
partners bargain over him; shall they divide him among themerchants? Job 41:7Can you fill his skin with barbs, or his head with fishing spears? Job 41:8Put your hand on him; remember the battle; you will not do it again! Job 41:9Behold, his hope has been made false; will he not be cast down at the sightof him? Job 41:10None
is so
fierce as to dare to stir him up. Who then
able to stand beforeMe? Job 41:11Who has gone before Me that I should repay? All under the heavens, it
Mine! Job 41:12I will not keep silent
as to
his limbs, or the matter of 
powers, or thegrace of his frame. Job 41:13Who can take off the face of his covering; who can come with his doublebridle? Job 41:14Who can pry open the doors of his face? Terror
all around his teeth. Job 41:15The rows of shields
his pride, shut up with a tight seal; Job 41:16one is so near to another that no air can come between them; Job 41:17they are joined to one another; they clasp each other, so that they cannotbe separated. Job 41:18His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes
as the eyelids of the dawn. Job 41:19Out of his mouth go burning torches; sparks of fire fly out. Job 41:20Smoke goes out of his nostrils like a boiling pot
by reeds. Job 41:21His breath kindles coals and the flame goes out from his mouth. Job 41:22Strength abides in his neck and terror dances before him. Job 41:23The folds of flesh cleave together, cast firm on him; he cannot be moved. Job 41:24His heart is cast hard as a stone, even cast hard as a piece of a lower
 Job 41:25The mighty are afraid from his arising; from the crashings theymiss the way.
 Job 41:26The sword overtakes him,
will not hold firm,
the spear, the dart, orthe javelin. Job 41:27He counts iron as straw, bronze as rotten wood. Job 41:28A son of a bow cannot make him flee; slingstones are turned to stubble byhim; Job 41:29darts are counted as stubble; he laughs at the shaking of a javelin. Job 41:30Points of potsherds
under him; he spreads sharp
on the mire. Job 41:31He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a pot of ointment; Job 41:32he makes a path to shine after him; one would think the deep
to be
grayheaded. Job 41:33There is nothing like him on earth, one made without fear. Job 41:34He beholds all high
; he
king over all the sons of pride.
Eze 28:2
Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, So says the Lord Jehovah, Becauseyour heart
lifted up, and you have said, I
a god, I sit
the seat of gods, inthe heart of the seas; yet you
a man, and not God, though you give yourheart as the heart of gods.
