In the king James version, it is used 22 times in the old testament and 12 times in the new testament. (how do I know this? I looked it up and counted. Lol no Jk I have an awesome app that tells me when I look up a word) and like odd said, it isn't literally meaning "dragon" it can be translated into other meanings if you look into the footnotes. It's symbolic I don't think it's literal.
The Bible uses the word "Dragon" several times in both the Old and New Testaments. Many people have assumed that the Biblical Dragon is an imaginary creature.
However, the Biblical Dragon is a real animal with a firm foundation in reality There are a number of places where it appears that dinosaurs or other similar creatures are mentioned in the scriptures. Remember that the Bible was translated into English long before the word "dinosaur" was coined. However, the word "dragon" appears 21 times in the Old Testament alone.
The book of Revelation is your source. 12:3 12:4 12:7 12:9 12:13 12:16 12:17 13:2 13:4 13:11 16:13 20:2 That would be (12) in the new testament I will check out the old testament when I get time to answer.
