Bell
        The bells first mentioned in Scripture are the small golden
        bells attached to the hem of the high priest's ephod (Ex. 28:33,
        34, 35). The "bells of the horses" mentioned by Zechariah
        (14:20) were attached to the bridles or belts round the necks of
        horses trained for war, so as to accustom them to noise and
        tumult.
