post (ruts, "to run," ratsim, "runners"): The "runners" formed the royal guard (1 Samuel 22:17 1 Kings 14:27 2 Kings 11:4, 13; see GUARD). From them were chosen the couriers who carried royal letters and dispatches throughout the kingdom (2 Chronicles 30:6, 10 Esther 3:13, 15 Jeremiah 51:31). In the Persian service they were mounted on the swiftest horses (Esther 8:10, 14; compare Xenophon, Cyrop. viii.6, 17; Herodotus viii.98). They had the right to command the service of either men or animals in order to expedite their progress (compare Matthew 5:41 Mark 15:21, "compel," "impress").
