Dinosaurs in Idumea

The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.

And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.

(Isaiah 34:6, 13) KJV

Depending on which English Bible translation you read, you may or may not see the word dragon occur. Several Hebrew words are translated dragon in the KJV, but are rendered as various other creatures in newer translations.

This doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with the KJV. It means that newer translations were unlikely to use an English word for something which is widely regarded as mythological. Newer translations have tried to become compatible with the popular science paradigm (SciPop) and so that’s the reason why so much meaning has been lost.

Were there dragons or dinosaurs in Idumea? What’s Idumea.

Edom (/ˈiːdəm/;Edomite: ??? ’Edām; Hebrew: אֱדוֹם‎ ʼÉḏōm, lit.: “red”; Akkadian: Uduma; Syriac: ܐܕܘܡ‎) was an ancient kingdom in Transjordan located between Moab to the northeast, the Arabah to the west and the Arabian Desert to the south and east. Most of its former territory is now divided between Israel and Jordan. Edom appears in written sources relating to the late Bronze Age and to the Iron Age in the Levant, such as the Hebrew Bible and Egyptian and Mesopotamian records. In classical Greek, the name was rendered as the cognate Idumea, which geographically was a smaller area in the same general region.

– Idumea/Edom (Wikipedia)

The area referred to as Idumea may include the region around the Jordan River. In reference to Behemoth, which we have identified as a sauropod:

Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.

(Job 40:23) KJV

So yes, there were dinosaurs in Idumea.

We don’t find human and dinosaur remains in the same bed of a strata because humans and Dinosaurs didn’t live in the same habitats.
