From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a vehicle generally used for warlike purposes. Sometimes, though
    but rarely, it is spoken of as used for peaceful purposes.
      The first mention of the chariot is when Joseph, as a mark of
    distinction, was placed in Pharaoh's second state chariot (Gen.
    41:43); and the next, when he went out in his own chariot to
    meet his father Jacob (46:29). Chariots formed part of the
    funeral procession of Jacob (50:9). When Pharaoh pursued the
    Israelites he took 600 war-chariots with him (Ex. 14:7). The
    Canaanites in the valleys of Palestine had chariots of iron
    (Josh. 17:18; Judg. 1:19). Jabin, the king of Canaan, had 900
    chariots (Judg. 4:3); and in Saul's time the Philistines had
    30,000. In his wars with the king of Zobah and with the Syrians,
    David took many chariots among the spoils (2 Sam. 8:4; 10:18).
    Solomon maintained as part of his army 1,400 chariots (1 Kings
    10:26), which were chiefly imported from Egypt (29). From this
    time forward they formed part of the armies of Israel (1 Kings
    22:34; 2 Kings 9:16, 21; 13:7, 14; 18:24; 23:30).
      In the New Testament we have only one historical reference to
    the use of chariots, in the case of the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts.
    8:28, 29, 38).
      This word is sometimes used figuratively for hosts (Ps. 68:17;
    2 Kings 6:17). Elijah, by his prayers and his counsel, was "the
    chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof." The rapid agency
    of God in the phenomena of nature is also spoken of under the
    similitude of a chariot (Ps. 104:3; Isa. 66:15; Hab. 3:8).
      Chariot of the cherubim (1 Chr. 28:18), the chariot formed by
    the two cherubs on the mercy-seat on which the Lord rides.
      Chariot cities were set apart for storing the war-chariots in
    time of peace (2 Chr. 1:14).
      Chariot horses were such as were peculiarly fitted for service
    in chariots (2 Kings 7:14).
      Chariots of war are described in Ex. 14:7; 1 Sam. 13:5; 2 Sam.
    8:4; 1 Chr. 18:4; Josh. 11:4; Judg. 4:3, 13. They were not used
    by the Israelites till the time of David. Elijah was translated
    in a "chariot of fire" (2 Kings 2:11). Comp. 2 Kings 6:17. This
    vision would be to Elisha a source of strength and
    encouragement, for now he could say, "They that be with us are
    more than they that be with them."
