Gesenius: בְּהֵמָה (H929 in 24 WLC links below)

constr. בֶּהֱמַת with suff. בְּהֶמְתֹּו, בְּהֶמְתְּךָ (as if from בְהֵמֶת), pl. בַּהֵמֹות constr. בַּהֲמֹות fem. a beast (so called from being unable to speak), used of large land quadrupeds (see however Pl. No. 2); Arab. بَهِيمَةُ. Opp. to birds and reptiles, Gen 6:7, 20 7:2 , , 23 8:20 Exo 9:25 Lev 11:2 Pro 30:30, גִּבֹּור בַּבְּהֵמָה לַיִשׁ “the lion is a mighty one amongst beasts.” Specially signifying-

(1) domestic animals, cattle, used collect., like the Latin pecus [or Eng. cattle]. Opp. to הַיַּת הָאָרֶץ Gen 1:24 חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה Gen 2:20 Gen 3:14 הַחַיָּה Gen 7:14, 21 Lev 25:7, beasts of the field, wild beasts. It embraces צאֹן and בָּקָר Gen 47:18 Lev 1:2. Elsewhere-

(2) it signifies only beasts of burden, as asses, camels; opp. to מִקְנֶה Gen 34:23 Gen 36:6 Num 32:26 2Ki 3:17. Compare Isa 30:6 Isa 46:1 .

(3) poet. used also of beasts of the field and wild beasts. So in pl. בְּהֵמֹות Deu 32:24 Hab 2:17 especially when followed by הָאָרֶץ Deu 28:26 Isa 18:6 הַשָּׂדֶה, שָׂדַי 1Sa 17:44 Joe 1:20 יַעַר Mic 5:7.

Pl. בְּהֵמֹות-

(1) beasts, quadrupeds, see above.

(2) pl. majest. (and therefore followed by sing. m.), a large, great beast, by which name, Job 40:15, the hippopotamus is designated. I regard the description as being of this animal, and not the elephant, as thought by Drusius, Grotius, Schultens, J. D. Michaëlis, on the place, Schoder in Hieroz. specially i. p. 2, seq.; in this I follow the judgment of Bochart (Hieroz. ii. p. 754, seq.), and Ludolf (Hist. Ethiop. i. 11). But it is probable that the form בְּהֵמֹות really conceals an Egyptian word, signifying the hippopotamus, but so inflected as to appear Phœnicio-Shemitic (see אַבְרֵךְ ); ⲡ-ⲉⲍⲉ-ⲙⲱⲟⲩⲧ [P-ehe-mout] denotes water-ox, by which name (bomarino) the Italians also call the hippopotamus (see Jablonskii Opuscc. ed. te Water, i. 52). [“It is true that the word so compounded is not now found in the remains of the Coptic language; but the objection urged (Lee’s Heb. Lex. p. 74), that it is formed contrary to the laws of language, is not valid. It is said indeed, that ehe, ox, is of the fem. gender, and that the word for water is mou, and not mout. But ehe is of the comm. gender, and is frequently used as masc., see Peyron, page 46; and the t in mout can be an article postpositive, see Lepsius, Lettre à Rosellini, page 63.” Ges. add.]
