New Defender's Study Bible Notes

30:29 brother to dragons. Modern translations commonly render this as “brother to jackals.” However, the Hebrew word is tannin and really means “dragons.” These doleful creatures, coming in various species and sizes, had not yet become extinct in Job’s time, and were probably equivalent to the extinct animals we now call dinosaurs. See note on Lamentations 4:3.
