Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
This was an instrument of music known in the court of the Chaldeans; but we do not find mention of it elsewhere. (Daniel 3:1-30) The Hebrews had a variety of stringed and wind instruments as well as a kind of tympanum or drum. The Hebrews called it Taph. But certain it is that very little hath ever been understood, even among the Jews themselves, after their return from Babylon, concerning the instruments to which their fathers had been so partial.
