( מלחמה אישׁ , 'ı̄sh milḥāmāh ):

"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; Numbers 21:14; Joshua 5:13; Joshua 10:11; Judges 5:4 , Judges 5:13 , Judges 5:20 , Judges 5:23 , Judges 5:31 , etc.). See GOD , NAMES OF , III., 8.; LORD OF HOSTS; and HDB , V, 635 ff.
