Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Chariot
CHARIOT . The original home of the chariot was Western Asia, from which it passed to Egypt and other countries. In OT chariots are associated mainly with war-like operations, although they also appear not infrequently as the ‘carriages,’ so to say, of kings, princes, and high dignitaries ( Genesis 50:9 , 2 Kings 5:9 , Jeremiah 17:25 ; cf. Acts 8:28 ff. the case of the Ethiopian eunuch) in times of peace. When royal personages drove in state, they were preceded by a body of ‘runners’ ( 2 Samuel 15:1 , 1 Kings 1:5 ).
The war chariot appears to have been introduced among the Hebrews by David (2 Samuel 8:4 LXX [1] ), but it did not become part of the organized military equipment of the State till the reign of Solomon. This monarch is said to have organized a force of 1400 chariots ( 1 Kings 10:26 , 2 Chronicles 1:14 ), which he distributed among the principal cities of his realm ( 1 Kings 9:19 ; 1 Kings 10:26 ). At this time, also, a considerable trade sprang up in connexion with the importation of chariots and horses. It was not from Egypt, however, which was never a horse-breeding country, that these were imported as stated in the corrupt text of 1 Kings 10:28 f., but from two districts of Asia Minor, in the region of Cappadocia and Cilicia, named Musri and Kuë (see Skinner, Cent. Bible, in loc ). In the following verse a chariot from Musri is said to have cost 600 shekels of silver (see Money), and a horse 150, hut the Gr. text gives 100 shekels and 50 shekels respectively. Similarly in 2 Kings 7:6 the reference is to the chariotry of the Hittites and their allies of Musri.
Until the Macedonian period, when we first hear of chariots armed with scythes ( 2Ma 13:2 ), the war chariot of antiquity followed one general type, alike among the Assyrians and the Egyptians, the Hittites and the Syrians. It consisted of a light wooden body, which was always open behind. The axle, fitted with stout wheels with 6 or 8 spokes (for the Heb. terms see 1 Kings 7:33 ), was set as far back as possible for the sake of greater steadiness, and consequently a surer aim. The pole was fixed into the axle, and after passing beneath the floor of the chariot was bent upwards and connected by a band of leather to the front of the chariot. The horses, two in number, were yoked to the pole. Traces were not used. In Assyrian representations a third horse sometimes appears, evidently as a reserve. The body of the chariot naturally received considerable decoration, for which, and for other details, reference may be made to Wilkinson’s Anc. Egyp. (1878), i. 224 241, and Rawlinson’s Five Great Monarchies (1864), ii. 1 21, where numerous illustrationss are also given. The ‘chariots of iron’ of the ancient Canaanites ( Joshua 17:16 , Judges 1:19 ; Judges 4:3 ) were chariots of which the woodwork was strengthened hy metal plates.
In Egypt and Assyria the normal number of the occupants of a war chariot was two the driver, who was often armed with a whip, and the combatant, an archer whose bow-case and quiver were usually attached to the right-hand side of the car. Egyptian representations of Hittite chariots, however, show three occupants, of whom the third carries a shield to protect his comrades. This was almost certainly the practice among the Hebrews also, since a frequently recurring military term, shâlîsh , signifies ‘the third man,’ presumably in such a chariot.
Mention may be made, finally, of the chariots set up at the entrance to the Temple at Jerusalem, which were destroyed by Josiah. They were doubtless dedicated originally to J″ [2] , although they are termed by the Hebrew historian ‘chariots of the sun’ (2 Kings 23:11 ), their installation having been copied from the Babylonian custom of representing Shamash, the sun-god, riding in a chariot.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Chariot
The first mention of the chariot is when Joseph, as a mark of distinction, was placed in Pharaoh's second state chariot (Genesis 41:43 ); and the next, when he went out in his own chariot to meet his father Jacob (46:29). Chariots formed part of the funeral procession of Jacob (50:9). When Pharaoh pursued the Israelites he took 600 war-chariots with him (Exodus 14:7 ). The Canaanites in the valleys of Palestine had chariots of iron (Joshua 17:18 ; Judges 1:19 ). Jabin, the king of Canaan, had 900 chariots (Judges 4:3 ); and in Saul's time the Philistines had 30,000. In his wars with the king of Zobah and with the Syrians, David took many chariots among the spoils (2 Samuel 8:4 ; 10:18 ). Solomon maintained as part of his army 1,400 chariots (1 Kings 10:26 ), which were chiefly imported from Egypt (29). From this time forward they formed part of the armies of Israel (1 Kings 22:34 ; 2 Kings 9:16,21 ; 13:7,14 ; 18:24 ; 23:30 ).
In the New Testament we have only one historical reference to the use of chariots, in the case of the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:28,29,38 ).
This word is sometimes used figuratively for hosts (Psalm 68:17 ; 2 Kings 6:17 ). Elijah, by his prayers and his counsel, was "the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof." The rapid agency of God in the phenomena of nature is also spoken of under the similitude of a chariot (Psalm 104:3 ; Isaiah 66:15 ; Habakkuk 3:8 ).
Chariot of the cherubim (1 Chronicles 28:18 ), the chariot formed by the two cherubs on the mercy-seat on which the Lord rides.
Chariot cities were set apart for storing the war-chariots in time of peace (2 Chronicles 1:14 ).
Chariot horses were such as were peculiarly fitted for service in chariots (2 Kings 7:14 ).
Chariots of war are described in Exodus 14:7 ; 1 Samuel 13:5 ; 2 Samuel 8:4 ; 1 Chronicles 18:4 ; Joshua 11:4 ; Judges 4:3,13 . They were not used by the Israelites till the time of David. Elijah was translated in a "chariot of fire" (2 Kings 2:11 ). Compare 2 Kings 6:17 . This vision would be to Elisha a source of strength and encouragement, for now he could say, "They that be with us are more than they that be with them."
Webster's Dictionary - Chariot

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Chariot
Except in Song of Solomon 3:9 , where the word is appiryon and signifies 'sedan, portable couch,' the chariots were vehicles with two wheels, used either for travelling or for war: they are often seen portrayed on Egyptian and Assyrian monuments. Genesis 41:43 ; Genesis 50:9 ; 1 Kings 4:26 ; Ezekiel 23:24 ; Acts 8:28 ; Revelation 9:9 . In Revelation 18:13 the word is ῥέδα, and some describe it as a vehicle with four wheels. The CHARIOT MAN in 2 Chronicles 18:33 is the driver, as in 1 Kings 22:34 . A CHARIOT OF FIRE and horses of fire appeared when Elijah was carried up into heaven. 2 Kings 2:11,12 . When the king of Syria sought to take Elisha at Dothan he was protected by invisible chariots of fire. 2 Kings 6:17 .

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Chariot
The word is used repeatedly in Scripture, both as a real representation of the thing itself, and also figuratively. Very terrible were the war chariots, with which men fought in battle. Jabin, king of Canaan, it is said, had nine hundred chariots of iron, and mightily oppressed the children of Israel. (Judges 4:3) But when the term of chariot is applied to express spiritual things, the matter becomes more interesting. Thus Elijah's chariot, by which he went up into heaven; is called, the chariots of Israel, and the horsemen thereof; by which is meant, the ascension of Elijah's fervent prayers for Israel, were more powerful and prevailing than all the chariots of Israel in their defence. And doubtless, as the prophet in this instance became a type of Christ, in his priestly and regal office, the whole is abundantly plain and evident. (2 Kings 2:12) So again, in the book of the Songs, (Song of Song of Solomon 3:9) Solomon is said to have made a chariot of the wood of Lebanon; the pillars silver, the bottom of gold, the covering purple, and the midst thereof paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem."There can be no doubt, but that this is designed to speak of the Lord Jesus Christ, whose chariot of love, founded in himself, both in his GODHEAD and manhood, whose acts of grace, are richer than gold and silver, and whose whole heart is full of love to his beloved Jerusalem. Hence, the church in return, feeling all her affections awakened by grace, to the love of Jesus, cries out in an holy rapture of joy and delight," Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Ammi-nadib?' (Song of Song of Solomon 6:12)

CHARIOT,n.
1. A half coach a carriage with four wheels and one seat behind, used for convenience and pleasure. 2. A car or vehicle used formerly in war, drawn by two or more horses, and conveying two men each. These vehicles were sometimes armed with hooks or sythes. CHARIOT, To convey in a chariot.
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Chariot,
a vehicle used either for warlike or peaceful purposes, but most commonly the former. The Jewish chariots were patterned after the Egyptian, and consisted of a single pair of wheels on an axle, upon which was a car with high front and sides, but open at the back. The earliest mention of chariots in Scripture is in Egypt, where Joseph, as a mark of distinction, was placed in Pharaoh's second chariot. (Genesis 41:43 ) Later on we find mention of Egyptian chariots for a warlike purpose. (Exodus 14:7 ) In this point of view chariots among some nations of antiquity, as elephants among others, may be regarded as filling the place of heavy artillery in modern times, so that the military power of a nation might be estimated by the number of its chariots. Thus Pharaoh in pursuing Israel took with him 600 chariots. The Philistines in Saul's time had 30,000. (1 Samuel 13:5 ) David took from Hadadezer, king of Zobah, 1000 chariots, (2 Samuel 8:4 ) and from the Syrians a little later 700, (2 Samuel 10:18 ) who in order to recover their ground, collected 32,000 chariots. (1 Chronicles 19:7 ) Up to this time the Israelites possessed few or no chariots. They were first introduced by David, (2 Samuel 8:4 ) who raised and maintained a force of 1400 chariots, (1 Kings 10:25 ) by taxation on certain cities agreeably to eastern custom in such matters. (1 Kings 9:19 ; 10:25 ) From this time chariots were regarded as among the most important arms of war. (1 Kings 22:34 ; 2 Kings 9:16,21 ; 13:7,14 ; 18:24 ; 23:30 ; Isaiah 31:1 ) Most commonly two persons, and sometimes three, rode in the chariot, of whom the third was employed to carry the state umbrella. (1 Kings 22:34 ; 2 Kings 9:20,24 ; Acts 8:38 ) The prophets allude frequently to chariots as typical of power. (Psalm 20:7 ; 104:3 ; Jeremiah 51:21 ; Zechariah 6:1 )
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Chariot
When the Israelites entered Canaan under Joshua, they were successful in conquering the hill country, but had difficulty in conquering the plains. The reason for this was that the local Canaanites were well equipped with chariots (Joshua 11:4; Joshua 17:16; Judges 1:19; Judges 4:13; 1 Samuel 13:5).
The use of chariots did not become common in Israel till the time of David, when Israel conquered many of the peoples of the plains and seized their chariots (2 Samuel 8:3-4; 2 Samuel 15:1). During the reign of Solomon, Israel’s chariot forces were expanded considerably, and from his time on they were an important part of Israel’s army (1 Kings 4:26; 1 Kings 9:22; 1 Kings 10:26; 1 Kings 20:21; 1 Kings 22:35; 2 Kings 8:21; 2 Kings 9:21; 2 Kings 10:2; 2 Kings 13:7). The armies of other nations likewise relied heavily on chariots (1 Kings 22:31; 2 Kings 6:11-14; 2 Kings 18:24; 2 Kings 19:23; see also WAR).

The Canaanites whom Joshua engaged at the waters of Merom had horsemen, and a multitude of Chariots. Sisera, general of Jabin, king of Hazor, had 900 Chariots of iron, Judges 4:3; and Solomon raised 1400, 1 Kings 10:26, in spite of the prohibition in Deuteronomy 17:16; 1 Samuel 8:11-12.

Jehoram and Ahaziah king of Judah (who had come to visit the wounded king) at once each in his own Chariot issued forth to meet Jehu.

Chariot, - The Jewish Chariots were patterned after the Egyptian, and consisted of a single pair of wheels on an axle, upon which was a car with high front and sides, but open at the back. The earliest mention of Chariots in Scripture is in Egypt, where Joseph, as a mark of distinction, was placed in Pharaoh's second Chariot. (Genesis 41:43 ) Later on we find mention of Egyptian Chariots for a warlike purpose. (Exodus 14:7 ) In this point of view Chariots among some nations of antiquity, as elephants among others, may be regarded as filling the place of heavy artillery in modern times, so that the military power of a nation might be estimated by the number of its Chariots. Thus Pharaoh in pursuing Israel took with him 600 Chariots. (1 Samuel 13:5 ) David took from Hadadezer, king of Zobah, 1000 Chariots, (2 Samuel 8:4 ) and from the Syrians a little later 700, (2 Samuel 10:18 ) who in order to recover their ground, collected 32,000 Chariots. (1 Chronicles 19:7 ) Up to this time the Israelites possessed few or no Chariots. They were first introduced by David, (2 Samuel 8:4 ) who raised and maintained a force of 1400 Chariots, (1 Kings 10:25 ) by taxation on certain cities agreeably to eastern custom in such matters. (1 Kings 9:19 ; 10:25 ) From this time Chariots were regarded as among the most important arms of war. (1 Kings 22:34 ; 2 Kings 9:16,21 ; 13:7,14 ; 18:24 ; 23:30 ; Isaiah 31:1 ) Most commonly two persons, and sometimes three, rode in the Chariot, of whom the third was employed to carry the state umbrella.

The use of Chariots did not become common in Israel till the time of David, when Israel conquered many of the peoples of the plains and seized their Chariots (2 Samuel 8:3-4; 2 Samuel 15:1). During the reign of Solomon, Israel’s Chariot forces were expanded considerably, and from his time on they were an important part of Israel’s army (1 Kings 4:26; 1 Kings 9:22; 1 Kings 10:26; 1 Kings 20:21; 1 Kings 22:35; 2 Kings 8:21; 2 Kings 9:21; 2 Kings 10:2; 2 Kings 13:7).

Jehovah discomfited Sisera and his Chariots and his host, by the swords of the Israelites, and apparently the overthrow was completed by a severe storm and the overflowing of the river Kishon.

Chariots of War - The Scripture speaks of two sorts of these Chariots, one for princes and generals to ride in, the other used to break the enemies battalions, by letting them loose armed with iron, which made dreadful havoc among the troops. The most ancient Chariots of which we have any notice are Pharaoh's, which were overwhelmed in the Red Sea, Exodus 14:7 . The Canaanites, whom Joshua engaged at the waters of Merom, had cavalry and a multitude of Chariots, Joshua 11:4 . Sisera, the general of Jabin, king of Hazor, had nine hundred Chariots of iron in his army, Judges 4:3 . The tribe of Judah could not get possession of all the lands of their lot, because the ancient inhabitants of the country were strong in Chariots of iron. The Philistines, in the war carried on by them against Saul, had thirty thousand Chariots and six thousand horsemen, 1 Samuel 13:5 . David, having taken one thousand Chariots of war from Hadadezer, king of Syria, hamstrung the horses, and burned nine hundred Chariots, reserving only one hundred to himself, 2 Samuel 8:4 . Solomon had a considerable number of Chariots, but we know of no military expedition in which they were employed, 1 Kings 10:26 . As Judea was a very mountainous country, Chariots could be of no great use there, except in the plains; and the Hebrews often evaded them by fighting on the mountains. The kings of the Hebrews, when they went to war, were themselves generally mounted in Chariots from which they fought, and issued their orders; and there was always a second Chariot empty, which followed each of them, that if the first was broken he might ascend the other, 2 Chronicles 35:24 . Chariots were sometimes consecrated to the sun; and the Scripture observes, that Josiah burned those which had been dedicated to the sun by his predecessors, 2 Kings 23:11
Join - Go near and join thyself to this Chariot
Horse - The Hebrews in the patriarchal age, as a pastoral race, did not stand in need of the services Of the horse, and for a long period after their settlement in Canaan they dispensed with it, partly in consequence of the hilly nature of the country, which only admitted of the use of Chariots in certain localities, (Judges 1:19 ) and partly in consequence to the prohibition in (17:16) which would be held to apply at all periods. David first established a force of cavalry and Chariots, (2 Samuel 8:4 ) but the great supply of horses was subsequently effected by Solomon through his connection with Egypt. The Chariot-horses were covered with embroidered trappings (Ezekiel 27:20 ) Horses and Chariots were used also in idolatrous processions, as noticed in regard to the sun
World: Vanity of Pursuit of - My friends, do you remember that old Scythian custom, when the head of a house died? How he was dressed in his finest dress, and set in his Chariot, and carried about to his friends' houses; and each of them placed him at his table's head, and all feasted in his presence! Suppose it were offered to you, in plain words, as it is offered to you in dire facts, that you should gain this Scythian honour, gradually, while you yet thought yourself alive. Your life shall fade from you, and sink through the earth into the ice of Caina; but day by day your body shall be dressed more gaily, and set in higher Chariots, and have more orders on its breast, crowns on its head, if you will
Horse - When the Exodus occurred, Pharaoh's army was outfitted with horses and Chariots (Exodus 14-15 ). ...

Horse - Even for warlike purposes horses were only slowly adopted, the mountainous regions held by the Israelites being unsuitable for Chariot warfare. David commenced acquiring Chariots ( 2 Samuel 8:4 ), and Solomon greatly added to their numbers, obtaining horses for them from Musri [1] in N. The equipment of horses is mentioned in the Bible the bit and bridle ( Psalms 32:9 , Proverbs 26:3 ), bells of the horses ( Zechariah 14:20 ), and ‘precious clothes for Chariots’ ( Ezekiel 27:20 )
Hypatia, Lady in Alexandria - Accordingly some passionate fanatics, led by Peter the Reader, conspired together and watched her as she was returning home from some journey, tore her from her Chariot, and dragged her to the church called Caesarium; there they stripped her and killed her with oyster shells, and, having torn her in pieces, gathered together the limbs to a place called Cinaron, and consumed them with fire

the Ethiopian Eunuch - ...
Was the Book of the prophet Isaiah the parting gift of his Jerusalem host to this eastern prince on the day of his departure home? And did the donor of the sacred book, with an earnest look and with delicate kindness, point out to his guest as he mounted his Chariot steps, the fifty-third and fifty-sixth chapters of the evangelical and ecumenical prophet? Or was the sacred book this good eunuch's own selection? After he had purchased some of the rarest specimens of recent Roman art for his royal mistress, did he seek out the sacred scriptorium and price for himself the richest-set roll of the prophet Esaias that the scribes possessed? In whatever way he had come by the fascinating book, he was away out of the city, and well on to the border of the land, before he was able to take his eyes off his purchase. But, at last, a Chariot of distinction comes in sight, and as it comes within earshot Philip hears with the utmost astonishment the swarthy master of the Chariot reading aloud. " "Understandest thou what thou readest?" said Philip, as the Chariot came to a standstill. Only, it strikes me, and it struck Philip, as a remarkable fact that out of the whole Old Testament this utter stranger to the Old Testament was pondering over its most central chapter, and its most profound prophecy, as he rode home in his Chariot. And rejoicing, above all, that he had said it the moment it came into his heart to say it, "See, here is water!" And, still, as the Chariot travelled its long stages toward far Ethiopia, the eunuch thought with a humble and a holy joy of all the way his God had led him, and of the singular grace that had at last apprehended him
Philip - " As he travelled along this road he was overtaken by a Chariot in which sat a man of Ethiopia, the eunuch or chief officer of Queen Candace, who was at that moment reading, probably from the Septuagint version, a portion of the prophecies of (Isaiah 53:6,7 )

Ezekiel - ...

Elijah - For, what was the Chariot of Israel to Elijah that day, but Elijah's heart already in heaven? And what were those horses of fire that day, but all Elijah's passions all harnessed, in all their heaven-bounding strength, to that heavenly Chariot?

And when Elisha saw it he cried, My father, my father, the Chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof! And he saw him no more

The land of Israel is left by the well-known figure of death, "and it came to pass, that as they still went on and talked, that, behold, there appeared a Chariot of fire and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven

Wheeled Vehicles The most commonly mentioned wheeled vehicle in the biblical narrative is the Chariot. Once the monarchy was established, Chariots became an integral part of the kings' battle strategy (1 Kings 10:26 ; 1 Kings 22:31-34 ). Private ownership of Chariots is found in Isaiah 22:18 . His Chariots, like his rock-cut tomb were status symbols for high-ranking members of the royal bureaucracy in Hezekiah's time (see Acts 8:26-38 for a similar case). ...
No physical remains of Chariots have been found in Palestine, although a magnificent example of a royal Egyptian Chariot was discovered in the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamon (about 1300 B.

Triumphs - The captive leaders followed in chains, with their children and attendants; after the captives came the lictors, having their faces wreathed with laurel, followed by a great company of musicians and dancers, dressed like satyrs, and wearing crowns of gold; in the midst of whom was a pantomime, clothed in a female garb, whose business it was, with his looks and gestures, to insult the vanquished; a long train of persons followed, carrying perfumes; after them came the general, dressed in purple, embroidered with gold, with a crown of laurel on his head, a branch of laurel in his right hand, and in his left an ivory sceptre, with an eagle on the top, his face painted with vermilion, and a golden ball hanging from his neck on his breast; he stood upright in a gilded Chariot, adorned with ivory, and drawn by four white horses, attended by his relations, and a great crowd of citizens, all in white. His children rode in the Chariot along with him; his lieutenants and military tribunes, commonly by his side. These words are a quotation from the sixty-eighth Psalm, where David in spirit describes the ascension of Messiah in very glowing colours: "The Chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place. After obtaining a complete victory over all his enemies, he ascended in splendour and triumph into his Father's presence on the clouds of heaven, the Chariots of the Most High, thousands of holy angels attending in his train; he led the devil and all his angels, together with sin, the world, and death, as his spoils of war, and captives in chains, and exposed them to open contempt and shame, in the view of all his angelic attendants, triumphing like a glorious conqueror over them, in virtue of his cross, upon which he made complete satisfaction for sin, and by his own strength, without the assistance of any creature, destroyed him that had the power of death, that is, the devil

Three years later, part of the judgment foretold came to pass upon Ahab, whose blood, after his fall in the battle of Ramoth Gilead, the dogs licked up while his Chariot was being washed in the pool of Samaria. Finally, after parting asunder the Jordan with his mantle, he gave Elisha leave to ask what he would, and having promised that he should have a double portion of Elijah's spirit, a Chariot and horses of fire parted the two, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. As Elijah's ascension was the forerunner of Elisha's possessing an influence such as Elijah had not, Elisha becoming the honored adviser of kings whereas Elijah had been their terror, Elisha on his deathbed being recognized as "the Chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof" by king Joash just as Elijah had been by Elisha, so Christ's ascension was the means of obtaining for the church the Holy Spirit in full measure, whereby more souls were gathered in than by Jesus' bodily presence (John 16:6-15; Ephesians 4:8-14)
Naaman - ' And, then, how Naaman came to Samaria with his horses and his Chariot; how Elisha sent out and told him to go and wash seven times in Jordan; how Naaman was wroth and would not wash in Jordan, but went away home in a rage: how his excellent servants reasoned with their angry master and how he repented and went and washed in Jordan till his flesh came again like the flesh of a little child-all that is told in fourteen as solid and as eloquent verses as ever were written. And all that stood between Naaman and perfect health and long life was just to ascend his Chariot, and let himself be driven to Jordan, when his servants would have undressed him and dipped him seven times; and, ere ever he was aware, he would have come up out of the water as sweet as a child

The Syrian king therefore sent horses and Chariots to compass Dothan by night. Elisha's ministering servant (not Gehazi) rising early was terrified at the sight; "alas, my master! how shall we do?"

Red Sea - So Pharaoh pursued the Israelites by the direct way of Migdol, with six hundred Chariots, his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, over against Baal-zephon. The Egyptians did not find out their mistake till the "morning appeared," or till day-break, when the rear of the Israelites had gained the shore, and the Egyptians had reached the middle of the sea, and their whole host had entered into it: then, indeed, they attempted to fly back, but in vain; for "their Chariot wheels were broken off, so that they drave them heavily, and their host was troubled" by the Lord, who looked or frowned upon them through the cloudy pillar of fire, and overwhelmed all their host in the midst of the sea; when the sea suddenly returned to his strength at the signal of Moses stretching forth his hand over it, Exodus 14:24-28 . ...
