Job 41:19

Context
NETBible

Out of its mouth go flames, 1  sparks of fire shoot forth!

XREF

Ps 18:8

NET © Notes

sn For the animal, the image is that of pent-up breath with water in a hot steam jet coming from its mouth, like a stream of fire in the rays of the sun. The language is hyperbolic, probably to reflect the pagan ideas of the dragon of the deep in a polemical way – they feared it as a fire breathing monster, but in reality it might have been a steamy crocodile.
