WHALE . 1. tannîn . See Dragon ( 4 ). 2 . dâg gâdôl , the ‘great fish’ of Jonah 1:17 , is in the LXX [Note: Septuagint.] and in Matthew 12:40 rendered in Gr. by kçtos and tr. [Note: translate or translation.] ‘whale,’ though the Gr. word has a much wider significance. It is impossible to say what kind of fish is intended in the narrative. See, further, art. Jonah.

E. W. G. Masterman.
