5. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
   (Heb. pered), so called from the quick step of the animal or its
   power of carrying loads. It is not probable that the Hebrews
   bred mules, as this was strictly forbidden in the law (Lev.
   19:19), although their use was not forbidden. We find them in
   common use even by kings and nobles (2 Sam. 18:9; 1 Kings 1:33;
   2 Kings 5:17; Ps. 32:9). They are not mentioned, however, till
   the time of David, for the word rendered "mules" (R.V.
   correctly, "hot springs") in Gen. 36:24 (yemim) properly denotes
   the warm springs of Callirhoe, on the eastern shore of the Dead
   Sea. In David's reign they became very common (2 Sam. 13:29; 1
   Kings 10:25).
     Mules are not mentioned in the New Testament. Perhaps they had
   by that time ceased to be used in Palestine.
