What Is A Biblical Unicorn

In Western art, unicorns are equine beasts with a single horn in the forehead, hence the name. But is this the same creature the writers of the Old Testament meant when they referred to unicorns?

Yes just as I have already posted the truth, the nine places that the Hebrew ream is mentioned in the old testament, it is accurately translated as the "ox": for one place mentions them together with the bullocks. Therefore unicorn is an english mistranslation, which is not found in the Hebrew text.

eloy, cluny is just giving you some of your own medicine.

I have not replied to cluny for quite a long time because of his continued dissing and dissension, and yet he strangely addresses me asking that I not address him...peculiar behavior.
---Eloy on 2/3/12


Eloy, please do not respond to my posts unless you are willing to receive the truth.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\Cluny, What do you think the Bible is referring to when it mentions the unicorn?
---Reba on 2/1/12\\

I basically believe the Bible is speaking poetically here.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\and according to the couple contexts in which the word is found, it is more accurately translated "ox".

Youm are wrong again, Eloy.

Oxen have been used for plow and draft animals since plowshares and carts were invented.

But in Job 39:10, the unicorn can NOT be used for these purposes.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

"unicorn" is a english mistranslation of the Hebrew word "ream", which is first found in Numbers 23:22. lit.Hb: "God whom brought them out of Egypt, lofty like the horns of the ream for him. The hebrew "ream" is probably named after the animals horns, and according to the couple contexts in which the word is found, it is more accurately translated "ox".

Yes. Unfortunately, there is so much of that going on around here, that it can be hazardous to post without wearing kevlar.

StrongAxe, Sorry I didn't mean to be offensive, just so used to being shot down that I snapped back!
Not sharp enough to catch the little symbols!

I was amused, not offended. Your comment was in jest, and so was mine. Hence, the smiley-face at the end.

But rhinoceros were indigenous to Europe and are indigenous to Africa and India.
yet not Palestine, the center of all?
---micha9344 on 1/26/12


Strong Axe, Actually the song is a children's fantasy song, but if it offends "MR-Straight-lace", I'll try to be a little more "religious" in my comments!

\\What about a narwal? Don't narwals have one horn? \\

So I've heard.

Of course, it behooves us all to seek long lost biblical truths in drinking songs from Irish bands... :)

Oh . . . Cluny, you asked this. Well, first thought to come to my mind was the a unicorn is a cousin of popcorn.

But . . . you're not going to buy that, I know you.

What about a narwal? Don't narwals have one horn?

Oh . . . and the rhinoceros . . . ooh, I just thought of this. So, if this is it, I offer God the credit! My memory needs miracles (c: I know there are rhinoceroses with two horns, but does one species have only one horn? I just looked it up > there are one-horned species. Also, the two-horned can have one horn much bigger so it can seem one-horned, I consider.

Sorry, "teaches" in my earlier post should've been,"teachers". I didn't proof read before posting:-(
---Reba on 1/24/12


Cluny, All you have to do is listen to that song:
They were playing silly games and drowned in the flood! (I think it was the Irish Rovers)
"Long time ago when the earth was green,there was more kind of animals than you've ever seen...."la la la
---1st_cliff on 1/24/12


Elder, "unicorn", by its very formation, could have only ONE horn.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I've heard Bible teaches refer to it as a bull(cow), but since the Bible gives no details on what it is, I prefer to think of it as the fantasy horned,winged horse we've all seen in art & movies. There may not be any here on this earth but I like to think there will be some in heaven.:-))
---Reba on 1/24/12


Cluny, I think a Unicorn is a Sunday School bus with two horns on it, beep, beep!!

\\You are thinking in English not Rabbinic Hebrew. All you have to do is look it up in Strong's H7214 pronounced "rem" or "reym" it is a Wild Bull Ox.\\

Aside from the fact that the lexicas in the back of Strong's Concordance are not the final words in Biblical philology, it is impossible for an ox to be a bull, or vice versa.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
