War, Man Of


('ish milchamah):

"Yahweh is a man of war:

Yahweh is his name" (Exodus 15:3).

In early Israel the character of Yahweh as the war-God forms a prominent feature in the conception of God (Numbers 10:35; 21:14; Joshua 5:13; 10:11; Judges 5:4,13,20,23,31, etc.).

See GOD, NAMES OF, III, 8; LORD OF HOSTS; and HDB, V, 635.
