In the Old Testament[1], the behemoth is a herbivore that resembles the hippopotamus or the elephant.

In the Book of Job, Job who has been tormented by Satan, wants an explanation from God for his misfortunes. God speaks to Job, asking Job who he thinks he is. He tells Job to "brace [himself] like a man". God points out his greatest creations, one of which is the behemoth (as well as the leviathan). God says that a person who cannot even take on the behemoth, a creation of God, should not be in the position to contend with God.
