Horse-gate @ a gate in the wall of Jerusalem, at the west end of the bridge, leading from Zion to the temple Nehemiah:3:28; Jeremiah:31:40).
Horse-leech @ occurs only in Proverbs:30:15 (Heb. 'alukah); the generic name for any blood-sucking annelid. There are various species in the marshes and pools of Palestine. That here referred to, the Hoemopis, is remarkable for the coarseness of its bite, and is therefore not used for medical purposes. They are spoken of in the East with feelings of aversion and horror, because of their propensity to fasten on the tongue and nostrils of horses when they come to drink out of the pools. The medicinal leech (Hirudo medicinalis), besides other species of leeches, are common in the waters of Syria.
Horseman @ Heb. ba'al parash, "master of a horse." The "horsemen" mentioned Exodus:14:9 were "mounted men", i.e., men who rode in chariots. The army of Pharaoh consisted of a chariot and infantry force. We find that at a later period, however, the Egyptians had cavalry ( 2Chronicals:12:3). (See HORSE.)
