What Do Hyenas Symbolize

Hyenas are not mentioned specifically in the Bible, so they do not have any particular symbolism in a Biblical context. However, there are several passages in the Bible that mention animals that are similar to hyenas or share some of their traits.

For example, in Isaiah 13:22 and 34:14, jackals are mentioned as inhabiting desolate areas and ruins. Jackals are similar to hyenas in appearance and behavior, as both are scavengers and nocturnal hunters.
