Worthies

WORTHIES

wur'-thiz ('addir, "majestic," "noble" (compare Judges 5:13, etc.)):In Nahum 2:5, the King James Version "He shall recount his worthies" (margin "gallants"), the English Revised Version "He remembereth his worthies," the American Standard Revised Version "He remembereth his nobles." As Massoretic Text stands, the Assyrian king hurriedly summons his commanders to repel the assault, but the passage is obscure and the text quite possibly in need of emendation.
