Scripture speaks of two sorts of these: one for princes and generals to ride in, Genesis 41:43; the other to break the enemy's battalions, by rushing in among them, being "chariots of iron," that is, armed with iron scythes or hooks, projecting from the ends of the axle-trees. These made terrible havoc. The Canaanites, whom Joshua engaged at the waters of Meron, had horsemen, and a multitude of chariots, Joshua 11:4 Judges 1:19 . Sisera, general of Jabin king of Hazor, had nine hundred chariots of iron, Judges 4:3 . See LITTER .
