Unicorns and the Bible

Posted by c. wagner on November 12, 2009

Dudes. I had no idea that unicorns are named in the Bible. Not kidding.

9 Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib? 10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

That’s from the book of Job, chapter 39, verses 9 and 10, King James version. That’s right: King James version. The one that so many fringe-dwellers claim is the best and greatest English translation of the Bible.

Some more recent translations substitute “wild ox” for “unicorn”.

Does this mean that the folks who support the Invisible Pink Unicorn have a Biblical basis for their arguments?
