Only quakes delivered by the behemoth's hooves can quell the leviathan's massive whirlpools. It is little wonder that port towns celebrate the behemoth as a guardian god.
The Behemoth is a mythological beast mentioned in the Biblical Book of Job 40:15-24. It has been thought to be a reference to a hippopotamus. The word comes from the Hebrew b'hemah meaning "beast".
