רֶסֶן m.

(1)  a curb or halter, which goes over a horse’s nose, Isaiah 30:28 gener. a bridle, Psalms 32:9. Job 30:11, רֶסֶן מִפָּנַי שִׁלֵּחוּ “they cast off the bridle before me,” i.e. they use unbridled license; compare the Arabic phrase طلق زمامه to loose his halter, of an unbridled person. Hence

(2) the inner part of the mouth, where the bit (das Gebiß) is put, like the Greek χαλινοί, teeth, Job 41:5, כֶּפֶל רִסְנוֹ used of the double row of teeth (of the crocodile).
