Armoury

Armoury

the place in which armour was deposited when not used ( Nehemiah 3:19 ; Jeremiah 50:25 ). At first each man of the Hebrews had his own arms, because all went to war. There were no arsenals or magazines for arms till the time of David, who had a large collection of arms, which he consecrated to the Lord in his tabernacle (1Sa, 21:9 ; 2 Sam 8:7-12 ; 1 Chronicles 26:26 1 Chronicles 26:27 ).
