the Week of Proper 19 / Ordinary 24
Morrish Bible Dictionary
The vehicle on which the Philistines sent back the Ark. David in error also used a 'new cart' to fetch it from Gibeah: a human arrangement which displeased the Lord. 1 Samuel 6; 2 Samuel 6:3 . The same word, agalah , is translated 'wagons,' which were sent from Egypt to bring Jacob and his family, Genesis 45:19; and used for the carrying of parts of the tabernacle, Numbers 7:3 , where they are called 'covered wagons,' but which some prefer to call 'litter-wagons.' On the Egyptian and Ninevite monuments many carts are portrayed with two wheels, and some of the wheels were made with spokes.
