Ken Ham claims that Psalm 91:13 refers to
dragons. Psalm 91:13 says, "Thou
shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt

The Hebrew word translated dragon is tannîym. According to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, it is;
“a marine or land monster, i.e. sea-serpent or jackal; dragon, sea-monster, serpent, whale.”
The King James Version, which Ham quotes, is the only major version to translate it as “dragon.” The New American Standard (NAS), regarded by scholars as the most literal version, uses “serpent” in Psalm 91 and “jackel” in Isaiah 43. The New International Version and Amplified Version agree with the NAS. The New King James Version also corrects the KJV version, using “serpent” and “jackel.”
