International Standard Bible EncyclopediaLITTER
lit'-er (tsabh): (1) Used upon backs of camels for easy riding, made of a wooden frame with light mattress and pillows, also a covering above, supported by upright pieces, sometimes having also side awnings for protection from the sun's rays. Mule litters were made with pairs of shafts projecting before and behind, between which the animals were yoked (Isaiah 66:20). Litter-wagons ('eghloth tsabh) are mentioned in Numbers 7:3; the horse litter (phorion) is mentioned in 2 Maccabees 9:8; compare 3:27. (2) miTTah, "palanquin" or "litter of Solomon" (Songs 3:7; compare Songs 3:9).
