Numbers 23:22  (King James Version)
God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.

22:5 24:8 Exodus 9:16 ; 14:18 20:2 Psalms 68:35

the strength
Deuteronomy 33:17 ; Job 39:10 Job 39:11 ; Psalms 22:21

The {reaim,} most probably denotes the rhinoceros, so called from the horn on its nose. In size he is only exceeded by the elephant; and in strength and power inferior to none. He is at least twelve feet in length, from the snout to the tail; six or seven feet in height; and the circumference of the body is nearly equal to his length. He is particularly distinguished from all other animals by the remarkable and offensive weapon he carries on his nose; which is very hard horn, solid throughout, directed forward. He principally feeds upon large succulent plants, prickly shrubs, and branches; and delights in marshy places.
