[haw-ber-juh n, hab-er, huh-bur-juh n] /ˈhɔ bər dʒən, ˈhæb ər, həˈbɜr dʒən/

noun, Armor.
a short, sleeveless coat of mail.
a light sleeveless coat of mail worn in the 14th century under the plated hauberk
a variant of habergeon

an Old English word for breastplate. In Job 41:26 (Heb. shiryah) it is properly a “coat of mail;” the Revised Version has “pointed shaft.” In Ex. 28:32, 39:23, it denotes a military garment strongly and thickly woven and covered with mail round the neck and breast. Such linen corselets have been found in Egypt. The word used in these verses is _tahra_, which is of Egyptian origin. The Revised Version, however, renders it by “coat of mail.” (See ARMOUR.)
