Garrison

Easton's Bible Dictionary

(1.) Hebrews matstsab, a station; a place where one stands (1 Samuel 14:12); a military or fortified post (1 Samuel 13:23; 14:1, 4, 6, etc.).

(2.) Hebrews netsib, a prefect, superintendent; hence a military post (1 Samuel 10:5; 13:3, 4; 2 Samuel 8:6). This word has also been explained to denote a pillar set up to Mark the Philistine conquest, or an officer appointed to collect taxes; but the idea of a military post seems to be the correct one.

(3.) Hebrews matstsebah, properly a monumental column; improperly rendered pl. "garrisons" in Ezek. 26:11; correctly in Revised Version "pillars," marg. "obelisks," probably an idolatrous image.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A body of troops stationed in a fort or fortified town.

2. (n.) A fortified place, in which troops are quartered for its security.

3. (v. t.) To place troops in, as a fortification, for its defense; to furnish with soldiers; as, to garrison a fort or town.

4. (v. t.) To secure or defend by fortresses manned with troops; as, to garrison a conquered territory.
