Sword

[ARMS, ARMOR]

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Of the Hebrew was pointed, sometimes two-edged, was worn in a sheath, and suspended from the girdle (Exodus 32:27; 1 Samuel 31:4; 1 Chronicles 21:27; Psalm 149:6 Proverbs 5:4; Ezek. 16:40; 21:3-5).

It is a symbol of divine chastisement (Deuteronomy 32:25; Psalm 7:12; 78:62), and of a slanderous tongue (Psalm 57:4; 64:3; Proverbs 12:18). The word of God is likened also to a sword (Hebrews 4:12; Ephesians 6:17; Revelation 1:16). Gideon's watchword was, "The sword of the Lord" (Judges 7:20).
