What's the original Greek for "hanging with the beasts"?

and, of course, we can't forget what is perhaps the most noble of moments for the post-fall beasts in the Bible: the beasts of Nineveh were covered with sackcloth (Jonah 3:8).

God pities the beasts of this city, for Nineveh has 12,000 people and "also much cattle" (Jonah 4:11).
