Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 בְּהֵמוֺת noun masculine behemoth, i.e. hippopotamus (apparently plural intensive of foregoing; according to D1Job 40:15 compare De Isaiah 30:6 from an (assumed) Egyptain p-ehemau, ox of the water) Job 40:15 (on identity, compare further Bo Hieroz. iii. 705); probably also Psalm 73:22 בְּהֵמוֺתהָיִיתִי עִמָּ֑ךְ a behemoth was I with ( toward) thee (so Hi De; Che beasts); according to De Or also in בַּהֲמוֺת Isaiah 30:6 the burden of the behemoth of the south (supposed to be a designation of Egypt; but this unlikely, compare Che Di, read therefore) rather beasts of the south, namely of Judah.

בהן (compare Arabic IV. shut, cover (see foregoing) whence also = בֹּהֶן; as closing and covering the hand, compare Lane).
