Booty

BOOTY

boot'-i (baz and baz):

"Booty" is the translation of baz or baz, usually rendered "prey" and "spoil" (Jeremiah 49:32); of malqoach, "prey," "booty" (Numbers 31:32, "the booty--the rest of the prey," the Revised Version (British and American) "the prey, over and above the booty," baz); of meshiccah, "spoil" (Habakkuk 2:7; Zechariah 1:13; the Revised Version (British and American) "spoil"); of opheleia, "gain" (2 Macc 8:20). "Booty respects what is of personal service to the captor; spoils whatever serves to designate his triumph; prey includes whatever gratifies the appetite and is to be consumed" (Crabb, English Synonymes). Persons (for slaves, etc.) might be part of the booty.
