Behemoth (Hebraice בהמות ; recentius behemot [sing. bəhēmāh 'animal domesticum']; Arabice بھيمة bahimah, plur. بهائم bahaëm) est bestia in Libro Iob (40:10–24) commemorata.

Identitates opinabiles variant a creatura mythologica ad elephantem, hippopotamum, rhinocerotem, et buffalonem.[1] Nonnulli creationistae false credunt behemoth esse sauropodum, quia eius cauda ut arbor cedrus describitur. Per rationem metaphoricam, nomen ullam entitatem maximam vel potentissimam attingere potest.
