Easton's Bible Dictionary
The transliteration of the Hebrew word Tsebha'oth
, Meaning "hosts," "armies" ( Romans 9:29
; James 5:4
). In the LXX. the Hebrew word is rendered by "Almighty." (See Revelation 4:8
; Compare Isaiah 6:3
.) It may designate Jehovah as either (1) God of the armies of earth, or (2) God of the armies of the stars, or (3) God of the unseen armies of angels; or perhaps it may include all these ideas.
