From BibleWiki

(Heb. pered), so called from the quick step of the animal or its power of carrying loads. It is not probable that the Hebrews bred mules, as this was strictly forbidden in the law (Lev 19:19), although their use was not forbidden. We find them in common use even by kings and nobles (2 Sam 18:9; 1 Kg 1:33; 2Kg 5:17; Ps 329). They are not mentioned, however, till the time of David, for the word rendered "mules" (R.V. correctly, "hot springs") in Gen 36:24 (yemim) properly denotes the warm springs of Callirhoe, on the eastern shore of the Dead Sea. In David's reign they became very common (2 Sam 13:29; 1 Kg 10:25).

Mules are not mentioned in the New Testament. Perhaps they had by that time ceased to be used in Palestine.
