Behemoth in Mythology Edit
In mythology, the Behemoth rules over the domain of gluttony, and is said to be butler and high cupbearer of Hell. There are disagreements about his appearance throughout commentaries; some say he appears as a whale or elephant while others believe he is a species that no longer exists. Urbain Grandier wrote that he was definitely a demon, whereas Delancre sees him as a monstrous animal, who can disguise himself as a dog, elephant, fox, or wolf. The Book of Job describes him as a monstrous creature. Behemoth is not listed in Wierus' hierarchy of demons, though Wierus does admit that Behemoth could be Satan himself.
It is also said that in reference to Chapter 40 of Job, that rabbis make him a great roast on the festival of their Messiah because he can eat as much hay as beef. They make the roast large enough so that Behemoth must gobble up the hay of a thousand mountains a day, which he has eaten since the beginning of the world. He never leaves these mountains, for if he did, time would be disrupted. The rabbis also claim that God killed the female of the species so that they could never reproduce.
