Beasts
Beast: This word is used of flocks or herds of grazing animals (Exodus 22:5) (Numbers 20:4,8,11; Psalms 78:48) of beasts of burden (Genesis 45:17) of eatable beasts (Proverbs 9:2) and of swift beasts or dromedaries (Isaiah 60:6) In the New Testament it is used of a domestic animal as property (Revelation 18:13) as used for food (1 Corinthians 15:39) for service (Luke 10:34) (Acts 23:24) and for sacrifice (Acts 7:42) When used in contradistinction to man (Psalms 36:6) it denotes a brute creature generally, and when in contradistinction to creeping things (Leviticus 11:2-7; 27:26) a four- footed animal. The Mosaic law required that beasts of labour should have rest on the Sabbath (Exodus 20:10; 23:12) and in the Sabbatical year all cattle were allowed to roam about freely, and eat whatever grew in the fields (Exodus 23:11; Leviticus 25:7) Animals of different kinds were to be always kept separate (Leviticus 19:19; Deuteronomy 22:10) Oxen when used in threshing were not to be prevented from eating what was within their reach (Deuteronomy 25:4; 1 Corinthians 9:9) This word is used figuratively of an infuriated multitude (1 Corinthians 15:32; Acts 19:29) comp. (Psalms 22:12,16; Ecclesiastes 3:18; Isaiah 11:6-8) and of wicked men (2 Peter 2:12) The four beasts of Daniel (Daniel 7:3,17,23) represent four kingdoms or kings.
