Here’s the ‘cha•mor’ in the Bible as an animal: “And Abraham said to his young men, Stay here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come back to you” (Genesis 22:5).
Here’s the ‘Cha•mor’ in the Bible as a person: “And Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to talk with him” (Genesis 34:6).
‘Cha•mor’ as a transportation means in prophecy: as such, the ‘chamor’ is mentioned twice. Once in the Old Testament: “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you; he is just, and victorious; humble and riding on an ass, on a colt the foal of an ass” (Zechariah 9:9). And almost verbatim in the New Testament: “Tell the daughter of Zion, behold, your King comes to you, humble, and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Matthew 21:5).
To fulfil this prophecy, Jesus entered Jerusalem riding a white donkey. Following the events of this day, Palm Sunday has been celebrated across the world until today: which day:
“they took the branches of the palm trees, and went out to meet him, and cried out, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel!’ Jesus, having found a young donkey, sat on it”
Despite its historical importance, the name ‘cha•mor’ is never used for people today. There is no need to explain why, right?
