Horse

Always referred to in the Bible in connection with warlike operations, except Isaiah 28:28. The war-horse is described Job 39:19-25. For a long period after their settlement in Canaan the Israelites made no use of horses, according to the prohibition, Deuteronomy 17:16. David was the first to form a force of cavalry (2 Samuel 8:4). But Solomon, from his connection with Egypt, greatly multiplied their number (1 Kings 4:26; 10:26,29). After this, horses were freely used in Israel (1 Kings 22:4; 2Kings 3:7; 9:21,33; 11:16). The furniture of the horse consisted simply of a bridle (Isaiah 30:28) and a curb (Psalms 32:9).
