There is a biblical account of a dragon in the bible.
Yes! But I wasn't thinking Job. I was thinking...
"Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4His tail swept a third
of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour
her child the moment it was born." - Revelation 12:3-4
"And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong
enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down..." Revelation 12:7-9
There's more of course, but nobody takes these parts of the Bible seriously for some reason.
"When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two
wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half
a time, out of the serpent's reach. Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the
torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon was
enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring..."
"The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority..."
"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one
could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name."
