The Dragon is a fabulous
animal, generally represented as a monstrous winged
serpent or lizard, with a crested head and enormous
claws, and regarded as very powerful and ferocious.
The Dragon represents evil, paganism and Satan.
The following reference to the Dragon is in the
Bible: In Scripture the term dragon refers to any
great monster, whether of the land or sea, usually
to some kind of serpent or reptile, sometimes to
land serpents of a powerful and deadly kind. It is
also applied metaphorically to Satan.
Thou breakest the heads of the dragons in the
waters. -- Ps. lxxiv.13.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder; the young
lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
-- Ps. xci.13.
He laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which
is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand
years. --Rev. xx. 2.
In the New Testament the word "dragon" is found only
in Rev. 12:3, 4, 7, 9, 16, 17, etc., and is there
used metaphorically of "Satan."
