Are dinosaurs mentioned in the Bible?

MuseumHere are some references from the Bible, most of which, refer to dinosaurs. The word “Dinosaur” was not in use until 1841, so we won’t find it in the Bible because the King James Version was translated in 1611, 230 years before Sir Richard Owen created the word “dinosaur”. The word dragon(s), in the Bible, in many cases, refers to dinosaurs. Be careful, when you read “dragon” because it sometimes refers to Satan. Look at the context of the passage before you consider it as referring to dinosaurs.
