Animals in the Bible

Where are animals mentioned in the Bible?  You might be surprised…

  • Job 38-41 speaks of God as over creation, as the Creator.  Chapter 39 specifically discusses animals.  My favorite part is about the ostrich…  Job 40:15-24 is about the behemoth (possibly a hippo or elephant) and Job 41 is about the leviaton.
  • Proverbs 30:18-19, 24-31  Observations about animals
  • Psalm 104 – how the Lord takes care of animals
  • Leviticus 11 specifies clean and unclean animals.
  • Genesis 6:18-7:4 Noah to bring 2 of every kind of animal, 7 pairs of clean animals.
  • This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but provides some observations about animals.

To supplement any animal study, I recommend these drawing resources.
