Coat of Mail

Coat Of Mail (שַׁריוֹן, shiryon', glittering) occurs in the description of Goliath's armor (1Sa 17:5), and also of Saul's (ver. 38). SEE ARMOR. The plural forms are found in Ne 4:16; 2Ch 26:14; where they are translated "habergeons" (q.v.). The kindred terms, שַׁריָה (shiryah', "habergeon," Job 41:26), שִׁריָן (shiryan', "harness," 1Ki 22:34; 2Ch 18:33; "breast-plate," Isa 59:17), and סַריוֹן(siryon', "brigandines," Jer 46:4; Jer 51:3), were probably less complete kinds of the same, i.e. corslets.
