IRON CHARIOTS THE INVENTION OF THE FIRST CAR
The LORD was with the people of Judah, and they took possession of the hill country. But they failed to drive out the people living in the plains, who had iron chariots.(Judges 1:19)
The word automobile comes, via the French automobile from the Ancient Greek word αὐτός (autós, "self") and the Latinmobilis ("movable"); meaning a vehicle that moves itself. The loanword was first adopted in English by The New York Times in 1899. The alternative name car is believed to originate from the Latin word carrus or carrum ("wheeled vehicle"), or theMiddle English word carre ("cart") (from Old North French), in turn these are said to have originated from the Gaulish wordkarros (a Gallic Chariot).
