Psalm 74:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

13 It was you who split the sea in two by your glorious strength.
You smashed the power of Tannin, the sea monster.
14 You crushed the might of Leviathan,[a] the great dragon,
then you took the crumbs and fed them to the sharks.[b]
15 With your glory you opened up springs and fountains,
then you spoke and the ever-flowing springs of Jordan
dried up so we could cross over.


  1. Psalm 74:14 Leviathan is mentioned six times in Job 41. Leviathan means “twisted or coiled” and is considered to be a sea monster. See Gen. 1:21.
  2. Psalm 74:14 The Septuagint says, “You fed them to the black peoples.”
