(a contraction of taboret, for "taboring", SEE TABER ) is the rendering in the A. V. of the two kindred words תֹּŠ, tôph (Ge 31; Ge 27;- 1Sa 10:5; 1Sa 18:6; Isa 5; Isa 12; Isa 24:8; Isa 30:32; Jer 31:4; Eze 28:13; elsewhere "timbrel") and תֹּפֶת tôpheth (Job 17; Job 6), which both mean a musical instrument of the drum kind (from תָּפŠ, to beat). This sort of music has always been in great request, both in classical and sacred scenes, especially on festive occasions. SEE MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. Especially has that form of the drum known as the tambourine been in vogue, particularly for female performers. SEE TIMBREL.
