Do Unicorns Really Exists in the Bible?
I have heard a lot of people say smart claims about Unicorns in the bible. Here's some information for skeptics and an explanation for Christians.
The actual Hebrew word in the texts where described as "Reem", Which actually translates as OX, Wild OX or Bull (A commentor also mentioned it to be a Rhino) and it was a big beast understood to only use one Horn in war or fighting. The scripture refers to it 9 times and it is understood as an animal of war in most of those scriptures, I read them all myself. When the people where translating the bible they felt that was best word to describe this figure which directly translates. Because of modernism it has been painted as a horse with one horn, but it's actually an OX, or wild ox... It comes from the Latin word Unicornus which means Uni=single Cornius= Horn. the original meaning mentions nothing of a horse. The only context historically that it was used as a horse is when there where 3 horses, and one was leading the pack in front of the other two horses, which would take on the figure of a horn.
