The Leviathan

Solve the World, Episode 2: The Leviathan

Listen to the whole episode here.

From the middle of the episode:

Rabbi Levi continued,

“They were three: Ziz, Behemoth, Leviathan. And so they were, growing in wisdom and strength generation after generation, causing man to fear them while watching over their kind.

"But even though these made the race of man tremble, to the animals under their protection, they served as kind and benevolent mentors. The lion asked Behemoth how to roar. The Ziz taught penguins how to fly, and great Leviathan showed the shark how to hunt. The three kept order in the world. No species went extinct on their watch.

"There was however, a growing enemy for the three. Remember, Leviathan, Ziz, and Behemoth were blessed with a strong vitality, but they were not invincible. They could be killed. Man, who had learned from Cain how to kill, hated the three. He envied them. He wanted their fame. He wanted their strength. And, I tell you truly children, every hunter in the world, in the darkest corridor of his heart, no matter how nice a person, secretly yearns to be the one who slays the ultimate beast..."
