Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
We meet with this word twice in the New testament. (Romans 9:29 and James 5:4) Perhaps the word might be more properly read Zabaoth, armies, from Tzaba, army, (Jeremiah 11:20) And when joined to the incommunicable name of JEHOVAH, it forms together that glorious title The Lord of hosts, or armies. And when we call to mind that the whole creation of God are his armies, what a sense of greatness and glory do such ideas awaken in the mind! It may serve in some measure to teach us the reverence Moses, the man of God, endeavoured to impress the children of Israel with when he proclaimed JEHOVAH under these charactersâ€”"that thou mayest fear (said Moses) this glorious and fearful name, the Lord thy God." (Deuteronomy 28:58)
