Abstaining from liquor; teetotal, at least temporarily: Monty didn't drink, and Clifton James went on the wagon
[1904+; first attested as on the water cart in 1902]
Heb. aghalah; so rendered in Gen. 45:19, 21, 27; 46:5; Num. 7:3, 7,8, but elsewhere rendered "cart" (1 Sam. 6:7, etc.). This vehicle was used for peaceful purposes. In Ezek. 23:24, however, it is the rendering of a different Hebrew word, and denotes a war-chariot.
