Are Unicorns in the Bible??

Yes they are mentioned in scripture, and yes, they do exist:

Job 39:4-6 “Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee? Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him? Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?”

Unicorn is actually a shortened way of saying Rhinoceros unicornis. But unfortunately, when people read this, they picture something Lisa Frank because of our culture. Rhinos traditionally are identified as a bicornus creature as seen below. I believe Unicorns are more specific to India where Bicorns are more common in Africa.

This fellow got really close to the car. I would be lying to say I wasn’t a bit uncomfortable. Honestly, the lions don’t scare me because I know they won’t take on a car. But this thing looks like it could take a whole vehicle out.

Anyways, Job 39 definitely came to mind! This beast was quite something to marvel at first hand!
