(Heb. toph), a timbrel (q.v.) or tambourine, generally played by women ( Genesis 31:27 ; 1 Samuel 10:5 ; 18:6 ). In Job 17:6 the word (Heb. topheth) "tabret" should be, as in the Revised Version, "an open abhorring" (marg., "one in whose face they spit;" lit., "a spitting in the face").
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 )
