Tabret

Tambourine.

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! And the harp, and the viol, the TABRET, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands. ( Isaiah 5:11-12 )
