15 Behold now the behemoth that I have made with you; he eats grass like cattle. 16 Behold now his strength is in his loins and his power is in the navel of his belly. 17 His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together. 18 His limbs are as strong as copper, his bones as a load of iron. 19 His is the first of God’s ways; [only] his Maker can draw His sword [against him]. 20 For the mountains bear food for him, and all the beasts of the field play there. 21 Does he lie under the shadows, in the cover of the reeds and the swamp? 22 Do the shadows cover him as his shadow? Do the willows of the brook surround him? 23 Behold, he plunders the river, and [he] does not harden; he trusts that he will draw the Jordan into his mouth. 24 With His eyes He will take him; with snares He will puncture his nostrils.
Baal is a Christian demon.According to Christian demonology, Baal was ranked as the first and principal king in Hell, ruling over the East. According to some authors Baal is a Duke, with sixty-six legions of demons under his command. The term “Baal” is used in various ways in the Old Testament, with the usual meaning of master, or owner. It came to sometimes mean the local pagan god of a particular people, and at the same time all of the idols of the land. It is also found in several places in the plural Baalim, or Baals (Judges 2:11, 10:10). There were many variations, such as the sun god, the god of fertility, and Beelzebub, or the “lord of flies”.
