1. pered. The first reference to this animal is in the time of David: his sons rode upon mules. David had his own mule, upon which Solomon was made to ride when he was proclaimed king. Mules were among the animals that were brought as presents by the nations to Solomon. They were also imported to Tyre. It would appear from Leviticus 19:19 that the Israelites were forbidden to breed them. 2 Samuel 13:29; 2 Samuel 18:9; 1 Kings 1:33,38,44; 1 Kings 10:25; Psalm 32:9; Isaiah 66:20; Ezekiel 27:14; Zechariah 14:15 .

2. rekesh. This was probably a swift horse on which despatches were sent. Esther 8:10,14 . The word is once translated 'dromedary,' 1 Kings 4:28; and once 'swift beast.' Micah 1:13 .

3. yemim. This is acknowledged to be wrongly rendered in the A.V.: it is translated 'hot springs,' by the Revisers and others. Genesis 36:24 .
