Below are articles from the following 2 dictionaries:
Easton's Bible Dictionary

Harness:

(1.) Heb. 'asar, "to bind;" hence the act of fastening animals to a cart (1Sa 6:7,10; Jer 46:4, etc.).

(2.) An Old English word for "armour;" Heb. neshek (2Ch 9:24).

(3.) Heb. shiryan, a coat of mail (1Ki 22:34; 2Ch 18:33; in Isa 59:17).

(4.) The children of Israel passed out of Egypt "harnessed" (Exd 13:18), i.e., in an orderly manner, and as if to meet a foe. The word so rendered is probably a derivative from Hebrew hamesh (i.e., "five"), and may denote that they went up in five divisions, viz., the van, centre, two wings, and rear-guard.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Harness:

har'-nes: A word of Celtic origin meaning "armour" in the King James Version; it is the translation of shiryan, "a coat of mail" (1Ki 22:34; 2Ch 18:33); of nesheq, "arms," "weapons" (2Ch 9:24, the Revised Version (British and American) "armor"); of ‘acar "to bind" (Jer 46:4), "harness the horses," probably here, "yoke the horses"; compare 1Sa 6:7, "tie the kine to the cart" (bind them), Ge 46:29; another rendering is "put on their accoutrements"; compare #/APC 1Macc 6:43, "one of the beasts armed with royal harness" (thorax), the Revised Version (British and American) "breastplates"; compare #/APC 1Macc 3:3, "warlike harness"; #/APC 1Macc 6:41 (hopla), the Revised Version (British and American) "arms"; #/APC 2Macc 3:25, etc.; harnessed represents chamushim, "armed," "girded" (Ex 13:18, "The children of Israel went up harnessed," the Revised Version (British and American) "armed"). Tyndale, Cranmer, Geneva have "harnes" in Lu 11:22, Wycliff "armer."
