sea monster

sea monster

A term that can mean simply “serpent” (Exod 7:9-12; Deut 32:33; Ps 91:13), but more commonly a monster of the deep (Gen 1:21; Ps 148:7) or even a dangerous sea dragon, one of the foes of God (Jer 51:34; Isa 27:1; Isa 51:9; Ps 74:13; Job 7:12). “Sea monster” can also stand for Egypt, the great foe of God’s people (Ezek 29:3; Ezek 32:2).
