Job 40:15
Context
Job Humbles Himself Before God

1Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said, 2Shall he that contends with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproves God, let him answer it. 3Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 4Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer you? I will lay my hand on my mouth. 5Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yes, twice; but I will proceed no further. 6Then answered the LORD to Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 7Gird up your loins now like a man: I will demand of you, and declare you to me. 8Will you also cancel my judgment? will you condemn me, that you may be righteous? 9Have you an arm like God? or can you thunder with a voice like him? 10Deck yourself now with majesty and excellency; and array yourself with glory and beauty. 11Cast abroad the rage of your wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him. 12Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place. 13Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret. 14Then will I also confess to you that your own right hand can save you. 15Behold now behemoth, which I made with you; he eats grass as an ox. 16See now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. 17He moves his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. 18His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. 19He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach to him. 20Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. 21He lies under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. 22The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. 23Behold, he drinks up a river, and hastens not: he trusts that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. 24He takes it with his eyes: his nose pierces through snares.

Treasury of Scripture

Behold now behemoth, which I made with you; he eats grass as an ox.

behemoth. or, the elephant, as some think (The Hebrew word is probably the same as the Egyptian Pehemou, Pehemout, (from P, the article, ehe, a bull and mout, water:) the hippopotamus, or river horse. It is nearly as large as the elephant; its head is enormously large, its mouth very wide, the jaws extending upwards of two feet, armed with four cutting teeth, each twelve inches long; its hide is so tough and so thick as to resist the strokes of a sabre, and it thinly covered with hair of lightish colour; its legs are three feet long; though amphibious, its hoofs, which are quadrified??, are unconnected; and its tail is naked, about a foot in length, but exceedingly thick and strong. It inhabits the rivers of Africa; feeds on grass and other vegetables; moves slowly and heavily; swims dexterously; sleeps in reedy places; has a tremendous voice between the lowing of the ox and the roar of the elephant; and when irritated, will attack boats and men with fury.)
