Abstract
The focus of the article is on the poetic paraphrases of the last fragment of God's admonition towards Job, in which the Behemoth and the Leviathan are described (Job, 40:10-41:26). The first paraphrase under discussion is by M.V. Lomonosov in his famous ‘Ode Paraphrased from Job' (1751). The authors of the subsequent paraphrases drew upon Lomonosov's work to various extents; namely, N.P. Nikolev in the ode of the same name (1795), S.A. Shirinsky-Shikhmatov in his lyrical poem ‘The Song to the Creator of All' (1817) and F.N. Glinka in the last books of his poem ‘Job: A Free Imitation of the Holy Book of Job' (1859). Depending on their purposes, the poets omitted different details of the source text or expanded it. By doing so, they either identified the mysterious biblical beasts with familiar animals, or emphasized their allegorical dimension as incarnations of the devil.
