Ever since we moved into our RV we have been trying to come up with a name for our rig. We went through so many ideas but we kept coming back to Behemoth. It seemed so apropos.
The first time I saw our RV I was impressed by how big it was and how strong it looked. Driving it only strengthened (no pun intended) that feeling of what a powerful beast of an RV it was. My mind quickly began likening it to the Biblical beast, Behemoth.
“Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you; He eats grass like an ox. See now, his strength is in his hips, and
his power is in his stomach muscles. He moves his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are tightly knit. His bones are like beams of bronze, his ribs like bars of iron…” (Job 40:15-18)
Everything about this beast sounds impressively strong, and that’s what I wanted our RV’s name to symbolize.
So there’s the story behind the name! From now on whenever we refer to Behemoth you’ll know what we’re talking about. 😉
