Or wagons were used in Palestine formerly, though now almost unknown. The roads are generally impassable by any wheeled vehicle; and the chief use of the cart was on a limited scale for agricultural purposes, such as forcing the ripe grain out of the ear, bruising the straw, removing the produce of the fields, etc., Isaiah 5:18 ; 28:27,28 . Wagons were used to carry Israel into Egypt, and for the conveyance of the ark, Genesis 45:27 ; Numbers 7:3-9 . They were often drawn by heifers, etc., 1 Samuel 6:7 , and were usually low, and on solid wooden wheels, sometimes iron-shod.
