Are Dinosaurs Mentioned in the Bible?

What about these three?

1. Behemoth

15 “Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.

16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.

17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.

18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.

19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him."

Job 40:15-19

Behemoth: ate grass like an ox; had a strong belly; a tail like a giant cedar tree; had strong bones; and is called the chief of God’s creatures.

2. Leviathan

1 "Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook?

15 "His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

18 "By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or cauldron.

Job 41:1; 15; 18-20 

13 “Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.

14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.”

Psalm 74:13-14

“In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.”

Isaiah 27:1

Leviathan was real big, it had tough scaly skin, smoke came out of its nostrils, and fire came out from its mouth, and God called it a “dragon that is in the sea.”

3. The Fiery Flying Serpent

“Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.”

Isaiah 14:29
