Although the leviathan was a real animal, God also uses the leviathan to describe powerful governments.  Here is
one example.

Psalms 74:12-14  But you, O God, are my King of old, you bring salvation upon the earth.  It was you who split
open the sea by your power;  you broke the heads (plural) of the monster in the water.  It was you who crushed
the leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert.

Now let’s read the verses that proceed this one.

Psalms 74:4  Your foes roared in the place where you met with us;

Psalms 74:6  They smashed all the carved paneling (in the temple of God) with their axes and hatches.

Psalms 74:7  They burned your sanctuary to the ground;  they defiled the dwelling place of your name.

Psalms 74:8  They said in their hearts, “We will crush them completely!”  They burned every place where God 
was worshipped in the land.

Psalms 74:10  How long will the enemy mock you, O God?

These 5 verses describe the Egyptians that enslaved the Jewish people and destroyed the Holy Temple.

Now let’s read the first verses again in there context.

Psalms 74:12-14  But you O God, are my King of old, you bring salvation upon the earth.  It was you who split open
the sea (red sea) by your power;  you broke the heads (Egyptian warriors/pharaoh) of the monster
(Egyptian government) in the water.  It was you who crushed the leviathan (Egyptian empire) and gave him
as food to the creatures of the desert (as the waters resided, the Egyptian bodies were left for food 
to the creatures of the desert).

You probably know this story as Noah separating the red sea and freeing the Jewish slaves.  When the waters were
released, the Egyptian warriors and the pharaoh were killed.  When the waters resided, they were left for food to the
creatures of the desert.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
