Habergeon

HABERGEON (hăb'êr-jŭn, Heb. tahărā’). A jacket of mail to protect the breast and neck (2Chr.26.14; Neh.4.16). The NIV translates this word “coat of armor” or simply “armor.” Job.41.26 has “pointed shaft” (niv “javelin”) with “coat of mail” in the margin. Habergeon is used also to translate a different Hebrew word of uncertain meaning in Exod.28.32; Exod.39.23 (kjv).
