KJV term for tambourine. Scripture associates the tambourine with occasions of strong emotion: farewells (Genesis 31:27 ); prophetic ecstasy (1 Samuel 10:5 ); a victory procession (1 Samuel 18:6 ); the procession of the ark to Jerusalem (2 Samuel 6:5 ). Tambourine music often accompanied festive occasions of drinking and merrymaking (Isaiah 5:12; Isaiah 24:8; Isaiah 30:32; Jeremiah 31:4 ).

Often women were the musicians (1 Samuel 18:6; 2 Samuel 6:5; Psalm 68:25 ). See Music, Instruments, Dancing .
