ar'-mer-i: (1) ('otsar; thesauros): A storehouse (1Ki 7:51; Ne 10:38), but employed figuratively of the stored-up anger of Yahweh which breaks forth in judgments (Jer 50:25). (2) (nesheq): Identical with Solomon's "house of the forest of Lebanon," the arsenal close to the temple (1Ki 10:17; Ne 3:19; Isa 22:8), in which were stored the shields and targets of beaten gold. (3) (talpiyoth): A puzzling word rendered "armory" in our versions (Song 4:4)--"the tower of David builded for an armory, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men." the Revised Version margin renders "builded with turrets."
