Holman Bible Dictionary
A hybrid animal produced by the union of a male ass and a mare. David chose a mule to symbolize royalty for Solomon's coronation (1 Kings 1:33
), possibly because the Israelites did not have horses. However, this is not the donkey used in Zechariah 9:9
and Matthew 21:5
for Jesus' entry to Jerusalem. See Animals
