      [also: bitting, bitted]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Bit
    the curb put into the mouths of horses to restrain them. The
    Hebrew word (metheg) so rendered in Ps. 32:9 is elsewhere
    translated "bridle" (2 Kings 19:28; Prov. 26:3; Isa. 37:29).
    Bits were generally made of bronze or iron, but sometimes also
    of gold or silver. In James 3:3 the Authorized Version
    translates the Greek word by "bits," but the Revised Version by
    "bridles."
