ARMORY

ar'-mer-i:

(1) ('otsar; thesauros): A storehouse (1 Kings 7:51 Nehemiah 10:38), but employed figuratively of the stored-up anger of Yahweh which breaks forth in judgments (Jeremiah 50:25).

(2) (nesheq): Identical with Solomon's "house of the forest of Lebanon," the arsenal close to the temple (1 Kings 10:17 Nehemiah 3:19 Isaiah 22:8), in which were stored the shields and targets of beaten gold.

(3) (talpiyoth): A puzzling word rendered "armory" in our versions (Songs 4:4)-"the tower of David builded for an armory, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men." the Revised Version margin renders "builded with turrets."
