To my knowledge there was no warring, marriage or dragons mentioned in the hebrew creation stories or at least what I've read of them.
I have been told thousands of times that the Holy bible is based directly on the Torah, the Hebrew Bible.
You obviously have not read it very well. How many times is the word "Dragon" mentioned in the Bible?
Dragons are mentioned in:
So around 25 times.
Here is a description of the Leviathan:
(Book of Job 41:20) Out of his [Leviathan
] nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or
caldron.21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
And here is description of Yahweh, the ‘God’ of the Bible:
(Psalm 18:8, 2 Samuel 22:9) There went up a smoke out of his [Yahweh] nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
And, according to Bible, what is the leviathan?
(Isaiah 27:1…) Leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; the Dragon
that is in the sea.
"And the great dragon
was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world [through Christianity]: he
was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
The word "war" is mentioned 231 times in the New Testament, King James version. In a previous post, I've listed and counted God's killings in the
Bible. But I only included those that said exactly how many were killed by God. I came up with 2,476,633.
But that didn't include some of God's most impressive slaughters. How many did God drown in the flood or burn to death in Sodom and Gomorrah? How
many first-born Egyptians did he kill? The Bible doesn't say, so there's no way to know for sure. But it's possible to provide rough estimates in
order to get a grand total, and that's what I'm attempting here.
Total with estimates: about 25 million human beings killed by God.
Here is a partial list, if interested in seeing chapter and verse:
How many people did God kill in the Bible?
In the King James version the word "marriage" occurs 19 times.
Just a few....
(Exodus 21:10) If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
(Matthew 22:4) Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are
killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
(Luke 20:34) And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage.
The word "marriages" occurs 3 times
(Genesis 34:9) And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto you.
(Deuteronomy 7:3) Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto
(Joshua 23:12) Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make
marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:
