TABER . Only in Nahum 2:7 ‘her handmaids mourn as with the voice of doves, tabering (Amer. RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘beating’) upon their breasts.’ Beating the breast was a familiar Oriental custom in mourning (cf. Isaiah 32:12 ). The word here used means lit. ‘drumming’ (cf. Psalms 68:26 , its only other occurrence). The English word ‘taber’ means a small drum, usually accompanying a pipe, both instruments being played by the same performer. Other forms are ‘tabor,’ ‘tabour,’ and ‘tambour’; and dim. forms are ‘ tabret ’ and ‘ tambourine .’
