(Heb. tsab, as being lightly and gently borne), a sedan or palanquin for the conveyance of persons of rank ( Isaiah 66:20 ). In Numbers 7:3 , the words "covered wagons" are more literally "carts of the litter kind." There they denote large and commodious vehicles drawn by oxen, and fitted for transporting the furniture of the temple.
