Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Seeing an old-fashioned carriage in your dream means that you must take care in shielding yourself from malicious gossip. Dreaming that you are riding in a carriage means that you will be put into an awkward position. Your past relationship may come back to haunt you.
Easton Bible Dictionary

In the Authorized Version this word is found as the rendering of many different words. In Judg. 18:21 it means valuables, wealth, or booty. In Isa. 46:1 (R.V., "the things that ye carried about") the word means a load for a beast of burden. In 1 Sam. 17:22 and Isa. 10:28 it is the rendering of a word ("stuff" in 1 Sam. 10:22) meaning implements, equipments, baggage. The phrase in Acts 21:15, "We took up our carriages," means properly, "We packed up our baggage," as in the Revised Version.
