Cart
        a vehicle moving on wheels, and usually drawn by oxen (2 Sam.
        6:3). The Hebrew word thus rendered, _'agalah_ (1 Sam. 6:7, 8),
        is also rendered "wagon" (Gen. 45:19). It is used also to denote
        a war-chariot (Ps. 46:9). Carts were used for the removal of the
        ark and its sacred utensils (Num. 7:3, 6). After retaining the
        ark amongst them for seven months, the Philistines sent it back
        to the Israelites. On this occasion they set it in a new cart,
        probably a rude construction, with solid wooden wheels like that
        still used in Western Asia, which was drawn by two milch cows,
        which conveyed it straight to Beth-shemesh.
        A "cart rope," for the purpose of fastening loads on carts, is
        used (Isa. 5:18) as a symbol of the power of sinful pleasures or
        habits over him who indulges them. (See CORD T0000898.) In
        Syria and Israel wheel-carriages for any other purpose than
        the conveyance of agricultural produce are almost unknown.
