Cart

Additional Links

A translation of ('agalah). The cart was generally drawn by two oxen, or sometimes by cows, harnessed with cords (Isaiah 5:18). It was used to convey the sacred utensils of the tabernacle (Num. vii 3-8). The Philistines returned the Ark of the Covenant to the Israelites on a cart drawn by two kine (1 Samuel 6:7-11). Carts were also, but not usually, used to convey persons from place to place (Genesis 46:5). Owing to the bad state in which many of the roads were kept, together with the fact that no springs were used in the construction of carts, they traveled very unsteadily and at times threatened to upset; hence Amos 2:13. Compare Chariot.
