Easton's Bible Dictionary - Army
The Israelites marched out of Egypt in military order (Exodus 13:18 , "harnessed;" marg., "five in a rank"). Each tribe formed a battalion, with its own banner and leader (Numbers 2:2 ; 10:14 ). In war the army was divided into thousands and hundreds under their several captains (Numbers 31:14 ), and also into families (Numbers 2:34 ; 2 Chronicles 25:5 ; 26:12 ). From the time of their entering the land of Canaan to the time of the kings, the Israelites made little progress in military affairs, although often engaged in warfare. The kings introduced the custom of maintaining a bodyguard (the Gibborim; i.e., "heroes"), and thus the nucleus of a standing army was formed. Saul had an army of 3,000 select warriors (1 Samuel 13:2 ; 14:52 ; 24:2 ). David also had a band of soldiers around him (1 Samuel 23:13 ; 25:13 ). To this band he afterwards added the Cherethites and the Pelethites (2 Samuel 15:18 ; 20:7 ). At first the army consisted only of infantry (1 Samuel 4:10 ; 15:4 ), as the use of horses was prohibited (Deuteronomy 17:16 ); but chariots and horses were afterwards added (2 Samuel 8:4 ; 1 Kings 10:26,28,29 ; 1 Kings 9:19 ). In 1 Kings 9:22 there is given a list of the various gradations of rank held by those who composed the army. The equipment and maintenance of the army were at the public expense ( 2 Samuel 17:28,29 ; 1 Kings 4:27 ; 10:16,17 ; Judges 20:10 ). At the Exodus the number of males above twenty years capable of bearing arms was 600,000 (Exodus 12:37 ). In David's time it mounted to the number of 1,300,000 (2 Samuel 24:9 ).
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Army
In Israel's, at the Exodus, every man above 20 was a soldier (Numbers 1:3); each tribe a battalion, with its own banner and leader (Numbers 2:2; Numbers 10:5-6; Numbers 10:14). Their positions in camp and on march were accurately fixed. The whole host moved according to preappointed alarms on the trumpet. So (Exodus 13:18) they "went up harnessed" (margin five in a rank; chamushim , from chameesh , "five"; or from chomesh , "the loins," with the loins girt), prepared for the march, not fleeing away as fugitives. Five was a number regarded as inauspicious by the Egyptians, but honored by Israel; witness the five books of the pentateuch, the Jubilee of fifty years. Manetho describes the Israelites as 250,000 lepers, five X fifty thousand. The exactness of their martial order is implied in Balaam's metaphors (Numbers 24:6).
The "scribe of the host" made the conscription and chose the officers when needful (Deuteronomy 20:5-9; 2 Kings 25:19; 2 Chronicles 26:11). The army was divided into thousands and hundreds with captains over each; the family too was respected in the army organization, as being the unit in the Jewish polity (Numbers 2:34; Numbers 31:14). Before the time of the kings their tactics were of a loose desultory kind; but the kings established a body guard, the first step toward a standing army. Saul had 3000 picked men (1 Samuel 13:2; 1 Samuel 14:52; 1 Samuel 24:2). David had 600 before his accession (1 Samuel 23:13); after it he added the Cherethites and Pelethites and Gittites (2 Samuel 8:18; 2 Samuel 15:18), and veteran guards (shalishim , "captains," 1 Chronicles 12:18; Ezekiel 23:15; Ezekiel 23:23, "princes," "great lords") whose "chief" was about David's person as adjutant. He called out also monthly a regiment of national militia, twelve regiments in all, under officers (1 Chronicles 27:1).
A "captain of the host," or commander in chief, led the army in time of war; as Abner under Saul, Joab under David. Judaea and the northern kingdom Israel being hilly, were little suited for chariots and horsemen, except in the plains of Esdraelon and Philistia, and toward Egypt and Syria. Moreover, God had forbidden the multiplication of horses (Deuteronomy 17:16). But their own unfaithfulness exposed them to the enemy's powerful chariots; so they too longed to have similar ones (Joshua 17:16; Joshua 11:9; Judges 1:19; Judges 4:2; 1 Samuel 13:5). David reserved 100 from the Syrian spoils (2 Samuel 8:4). Solomon afterward largely increased the number from Egypt (1 Kings 10:26-29; 1 Kings 9:19); in all 1400 chariots, 12000 horsemen. The grades in the army appear in 1 Kings 9:22, "men of war" (privates), servants (subalterns), princes (captains), captains (staff officers), rulers of chariots and horsemen (cavalry officers).
The body guard was permanently maintained (1 Kings 14:28), the militia only exceptionally called out. The Syrians reduced the cavalry to a mere fragment in Jehoahaz's reign. Jotham in Judah had a large cavalry force (Isaiah 2:7), but it was much brought down in Hezekiah's reign, so that the Jews, in violation of God's prohibition (Deuteronomy 17:16), looked to Egypt for horses and chariots (Isaiah 31:1; Isaiah 36:9; Psalms 20:7). In action the army was often in three divisions (Judges 7:16; 1 Samuel 11:11; 2 Samuel 18:2). Jehoshaphat divided his into five bodies (answering to the five geographical divisions then), but virtually Judah's heavy armed men formed the main army, the two light armed divisions of Benjamin the subsidiary bodies. At the Exodus the number of soldiers was 600,000 (Exodus 12:37), at the borders of Canaan 601,730; under David, 1,300,000 men capable of service, namely, 800,000 for Israel, 500,000 for Judah (2 Samuel 24:9), but in 1 Chronicles 21:5-6 it is 1,570,000; namely, 1,100,000 for Israel, and 470,000 for Judah.
The discrepancy is due to the census having been broken off (1 Chronicles 27:24). The militia (1 Chronicles 27:1, etc.), 288,000, was probably included in Chronicles, not in Samuel. The exact census was not entered in the annals of the kingdom (1 Chronicles 27:24); hence the amount is given in round and not exact numbers. Levi and Benjamin were not reckoned, the latter owing to Joab's repugnance to the census (1 Chronicles 21:6). Jehoshaphat's army was 1,160,000 (2 Chronicles 17:14-18). John Hyrcanus first introduced mercenaries. The Roman army was divided into legions, each under six tribunes ("chief captains," chiliarchs, Acts 21:31), who commanded in turn. The legion had 10 cohorts ("bands," speira, Acts 10:1), the cohort into three maniples, the maniple into two centuries (each 100 men originally), commanded by a centurion (Acts 10:1-22; Matthew 8:5).
The "Italian band" or cohort consisted of volunteers from Italy, perhaps the procurator's body guard. "Augustus' band" or cohort (Acts 27:1) were either volunteers from Sebaste, or a cohort similar to "the Augustan legion." Caesarea was the Roman head quarters in Palestine. The ordinary guard was a quaternion of four soldiers, answering to the four watches of the night, and relieving each other every three hours (Acts 12:4; John 19:23). Two watched outside a prisoner's door, two inside (Acts 12:6). "The captain of the guard" (Acts 28:16) was probably commander of the Praetorian guards, to whom prisoners from the provinces were committed. The "spearmen" (dexiolabi ; Acts 23:23) were light armed body guards, literally "protecting the right side," or else "grasping the weapon with the right hand."
Webster's Dictionary - Army Organization
The system by which a country raises, classifies, arranges, and equips its armed land forces. The usual divisions are: (1) A regular or active army, in which soldiers serve continuously with the colors and live in barracks or cantonments when not in the field; (2) the reserves of this army, in which the soldiers, while remaining constantly subject to a call to the colors, live at their homes, being summoned more or less frequently to report for instruction, drill, or maneuvers; and (3) one or more classes of soldiers organized largely for territorial defense, living at home and having only occasional periods of drill and instraction, who are variously called home reserves (as in the table below), second, third, etc., line of defense (the regular army and its reserves ordinarily constituting the first line of defense), territorial forces, or the like. In countries where conscription prevails a soldier is supposed to serve a given number of years. He is usually enrolled first in the regular army, then passes to its reserve, then into the home reserves, to serve until he reaches the age limit. It for any reason he is not enrolled in the regular army, he may begin his service in the army reserves or even the home reserves, but then serves the full number of years or up to the age limit. In equipment the organization of the army is into the three great arms of infantry, cavalry, and artillery, together with more or less numerous other branches, such as engineers, medical corps, etc., besides the staff organizations such as those of the pay and subsistence departments.

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Army
See War, Holy War
Holman Bible Dictionary - Army
A nation's military personnel organized for battle. Thus in Egypt, Israel could be referred to as having “armies” even when they did not have a political organization (Exodus 6:26 ; Exodus 7:4 ; Exodus 12:17 ). Goliath learned that to defy God's people was to defy the “armies of the living God” (1Samuel 17:26,1 Samuel 17:36 ), for God was the “God of the armies of Israel” (1 Samuel 17:45 ). In face of God, humans can only confess, “Is there any number of his armies?” (Job 25:3 ). Israel recognized God's anger when God did not go out with their armies (Psalm 44:9 ). To announce salvation, the prophet proclaimed the fury of God upon all armies (Isaiah 34:2 ). In the New Testament the writer of Hebrews looked back on the heroes of faith and proclaimed that through faith they “turned to flight the armies of the aliens” (Hebrews 11:34 ). John's vision of the end time included the armies of heaven following the King of kings to victory over the beast and the false prophet (Revelation 19:11-21 ).
Armies were organized in different ways during Israel's history. The patriarchs called upon servants and other members of the household (Genesis 14:1 ). In the wilderness Joshua led men he had chosen to defend against the Amalekites (Exodus 17:9-10 ). In the conquest Joshua led the tribes of Israel into battle after being commissioned by the “captain of the host of the Lord” (Joshua 5:14 ). At times tribes joined together to take territory (Judges 1:3 ; Judges 4:6 ).
Deborah summoned many of the tribes to battle, but some did not answer (Judges 5:1 ). Other judges summoned clans (Judges 6:34 ) and tribes (Judges 6:35 ; Judges 7:29 ). Saul first established a standing, professional army in Israel (1 Samuel 13:2 ), at first leading it himself with his son but then appointing a professional commander (1 Samuel 17:55 ). David apparently hired foreign troops loyal to him personally (2 Samuel 9:18 ; 2 Samuel 15:18 ). Solomon enhanced the foot soldiers with a chariot corps and calvary (1 Kings 10:26 ). The army was organized into various units with officers over each, but the precise chain of command cannot be determined (2 Chronicles 25:5 ). Humanitarian laws determined who was excused from military service and how war was conducted (Deuteronomy 20:1 ).
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - American Salvation Army
Formerly known as the American Salvation Army. A group of workers under Thomas E. Moore, who withdrew from the Salvation Army in 1882, incorporated as a separate body in 1884, and the following year adopted a charter under the name of Salvation Army of America. In 1913 the name was changed to American Rescue Workers. Similar to the Salvation Army in belief and government, their church is Christian with the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. They publish a quarterly periodical.
King James Dictionary - Army
'ARMY, n.
1. A collection or body of men armed for war, and organized in companies, battalions, regiments, brigades and divisions, under proper officers. In general, an army in modern times consists of infantry and cavalry, with artillery; although the union of all is not essential to the constitution of an army. Among savages, armies are differently formed. 2. A great number; a vast multitude; as an army of locusts or caterpillars. Joel 2:25 .
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Army
It must be remembered that Israel were the hosts of Jehovah, keeping His charge and fighting His battles. Exodus 12:41 ; Joshua 5:14 . It appears that all who reached the age of twenty years were contemplated as able to bear arms, Numbers 1:3 ; and they marched and encamped in 4 divisions of 3 tribes each, with a captain over every tribe. The subdivisions were into thousands and hundreds, Numbers 31:14 , and into families. Joshua 7:17 . There were also trumpet calls, Numbers 10:9 (cf. 1 Corinthians 14:8 ), and all the appearance of careful organisation. Until the time of the kings this natural or tribal organisation seems to have been usual, but in the time of Saul there was a body guard, 1 Samuel 13:2 , and a captain of the host, 1 Samuel 17:55 . In David's days those heroes who were with him in the cave of Adullam formed the nucleus of his 'mighty men.' 2 Samuel 23:8-39 . They were devoted to the service of God's king. David afterwards organised a monthly militia of 24,000 man under 12 captains. 1 Chronicles 27:1-15 .
The general gradation of ranks was into privates; 'men of war;' officers; Solomon's 'servants;' captains or 'princes;' and others variously described as head captains, or knights or staff officers; with rulers of his chariots and his horsemen. 1 Kings 9:22 . It may be noticed that horses having been forbidden, Deuteronomy 17:16 , it was not until Solomon's time that this was organised, though David had reserved horses for a hundred chariots from the spoil of the Syrians. 2 Samuel 8:4 . Solomon, trading with Egypt, 1 Kings 10:28,29 , enlarged their number until the force amounted to 1,400 chariots, and 12,000 horsemen, 1 Kings 10:26 ; 2 Chronicles 1:14 . Every able man being a soldier gave David the immense army of 1,570,000 men that 'drew sword.' 1 Chronicles 21:5 . After the division, Judah under Abijah had an army of 400,000 'valiant men,' and Israel at the same time of 800,000 'chosen men.' Afterwards Asa had 580,000 'mighty men of valour;' and Jehoshaphat, who had waxed great exceedingly, had as many as 1,160,000 men, besides those left in the fenced cities. 2 Chronicles 17:14-19 .
In the N.T. a few references are made to the Roman army. A 'Legion' was a body that contained within itself all the gradations of the army. It might be called under the empire, in round numbers, a force of not more than 6,000 men. Every legion at times contained 10 cohorts of 600 each; every cohort 3 maniples of 200; and every maniple 2 centuries of 100: hence the name of centurion or commander of 100 men, as found in Acts 10:1,22 , etc. Each legion was presided over by 6 chiefs, χιλίαρθος,each commanding 1,000 men, mostly translated 'chief captain,' as in Acts 21:31-37 , etc.: it is 'high captain' in Mark 6:21 ; and 'captain' in John 18:12 ; Revelation 19:18 . A cohort, σπεῖρα, is translated 'band' in Acts 10:1 ; Acts 21:31 , etc. A 'quaternion' embraced 4 soldiers. Acts 12:4 .
The head quarters of the Roman troops was at Caesarea, with a cohortat Jerusalem; but at the time of the feast, when, alas, the mutinous disposition of the Jews was sure to appear, additional troops were present in the city but without their standards of the eagle, etc., which were especially obnoxious to the Jews. Though the Romans were God's rod to punish them, their stiff necks could not bow, nor receive the punishment as from Jehovah.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Band, Army
Gedûd (גְּדוּד, Strong's #1416), “band (of raiders); marauding band; raiding party; army; units (of an army); troops; bandits; raid.” The 33 occurrences of this noun are distributed throughout every period of biblical Hebrew. Basically, this word represents individuals or a band of individuals who raid and plunder an enemy. The units that perform such raids may be a group of outlaws (“bandits”), a special unit of any army, or an entire army. Ancient peoples frequently suffered raids from their neighbors. When the Amalekites “raided” Ziklag, looting and burning it while taking captive the wives and families of the men who followed David, he inquired of God, “Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them?” (1 Sam. 30:8). In this case, the “raiding band” consisted of the entire army of Amalek. This meaning of gedûd occurs for the first time in Gen. 49:19: “… A troop shall overcome him.” Here the word is a collective noun referring to all the “band of raiders” to come. When Job described the glory of days gone by, he said he “dwelt as a king in the army [1]” (Job 29:25). When David and his followers were called a |gedud,they were being branded outlaws—men who lived by fighting and raiding (1 Kings 11:24).
In some passages, gedûd signifies a smaller detachment of troops or a military unit or division: “And Saul’s son had two men that were captains of bands” (2 Sam. 4:2). God sent against Jehoiakim “units” from the Babylonian army—“bands of the Chaldees, and bands of the Syrians, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of the children of Ammon …” (2 Kings 24:2).
The word can also represent individuals who are members of such raiding or military bands. The individuals in the household of Izrahiah, the descendant of Issachar, formed a military unit, “and with them by their generations, after the house of their fathers, were bands of soldiers for war, six and thirty thousand men …” (1 Chron. 7:4). Bildad asks the rhetorical question concerning God, “Is there any number [2] of his armies?” (Job 25:3).
The verb gadad means “to gather together against” (Ps. 94:21), “to make incisions into oneself” as a religious act (Deut. 14:1), “to roam about” (Jer. 30:23), or “to muster troops” (Mic. 5:1).

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Army
ARMY . 1 . In default of a strong central authority; an army in the sense of a permanently organized and disciplined body of troops was an impossibility among the Hebrews before the establishment of the monarchy. The bands that followed a Gideon or a Jephthah were hastily improvised levies from his own and neighbouring clans, whose members returned with their share of the spoil to their ordinary occupations when the fray was at an end. The first step towards a more permanent arrangement was taken by Saul in his operations against the Philistines ( 1 Samuel 13:2 ; cf. 1 Samuel 14:52 ). David, however, was the first to establish the nucleus of a standing army, by retaining as a permanent bodyguard 600 ‘mighty men’ (their official title) who had gathered round him in his exile ( 1 Samuel 23:13 ; 1 Samuel 30:9 , 2 Samuel 10:7 ; 2 Samuel 16:6 ). To these were added the mercenary corps of the Cherethites and Pelethites (wh. see), and a company of 600 Gittites ( 2 Samuel 15:18 ). Apart from these, David’s armies were raised by levy as before, but now from the whole nation, hence the technical use of ‘the people’ in the sense of ‘the army’ ( 2 Samuel 20:12 and often). Solomon’s organization of his kingdom into administrative districts ( 1 Kings 4:7 ff.) doubtless included matters of army administration (cf. 1 Kings 4:28 , 1 Kings 9:19 , 1 Kings 10:26 ).
2 . The organization of the Hebrew army was by units of thousands, originally associated with the civil divisions of the same name, with subdivisions of hundreds, fifties, and tens ( 1 Samuel 8:12 ; 1 Samuel 17:18 ; 1Sa 22:7 , 2 Kings 1:9 ff; 2 Kings 11:4 ), an arrangement which continued into the Maccabæan period ( 1Ma 3:55 ). Each of these divisions had its special ‘captain.’ The whole was under the supreme command of the ‘captain of the host.’ The relative positions and duties of the shôterîm (AV [1] ‘officers’) and other military officials are quite uncertain. The former appear to have been charged with keeping and checking the lists of the quotas to be furnished by the various districts ( Deuteronomy 20:5 ff.).
3 . The army was composed in early times entirely, and at all times chiefly, of infantry, the bulk of whom were armed with the spear or pike and the large shield or target (see Armour). The archers carried a sword and buckler ( 1 Chronicles 5:18 ), and with the slingers ( 2 Chronicles 26:14 ) made up the light infantry. Chariots, although long before a vital part of the forces of the surrounding nations, were first introduced into the Hebrew army by Solomon ( 1 Kings 4:25 ; 1Ki 9:22 ; 1 Kings 10:26 ff.; see Chariot, Horse).
4 . The period during which a citizen was liable for military service extended from his twentieth ( Numbers 1:3 , 2 Chronicles 25:6 ) to his fiftieth year (Jos. [2] Ant . III. xii. 4). Exemption was granted in the cases specified in Deuteronomy 20:6 ff., at least under the Maccabees ( 1Ma 3:56 ), and to the members of the priestly caste ( Numbers 2:33 ).
5 . As regards maintenance, each city and district had doubtless to supply its own quota with provisions, in so far as these were not drawn from the enemy’s country. The soldier’s recompense consisted in his share of the loot, the division of which was regulated by the precedent of 1 Samuel 30:24 . The first mention of regular pay is in connexion with the army of Simon Maccabæus ( 1Ma 14:32 ). Foreign mercenaries figure largely in the armies of the later Maccabæan princes and of Herod. No reference has been made to the numbers of the Hebrew armies, since these have in so many cases been greatly corrupted in transmission.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Army (2)
ARMY.—‘Armies’ (στρατεύματα) are mentioned by Jesus as the natural instruments of discipline at the command of an Eastern king (Matthew 22:7). He also foretells (Luke 21:20) the day when ‘Jerusalem shall be compassed with armies’ (στρατόπεδα). Otherwise there is little allusion to armies in the Gospels, and comparatively small use is made of lessons or figures drawn from military life. The Roman soldier, the legionary, did not loom very large in Palestine. When the Church spreads into the Province Asia, to Rome and Corinth, the impression of the army of Rome is much stronger both in the incidents of the Acts and in the figurative allusions of the Epistles.
John the Baptist found soldiers (see art. Soldier) among the crowds who came to him to be baptized (Luke 3:14); and the most remarkable bond of union between the military character and the character conformed to God, that of discipline and orderly subordination, was suggested to our Lord by the conduct of a centurion (Luke 7:8).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Army
This term occurs in Acts 23:27, Revelation 9:16; Revelation 19:14; Revelation 19:19 (in the last three instances referring to armies [1] of apocalyptic vision). On the outbreak of a tumult in the Temple at Jerusalem, the chief captain of the band came on the scene, as he afterwards reported, σύν τῷ στρατεύματι (Authorized Version ‘with an army,’ Revised Version ‘with the soldiers’). The little force thus described (Acts 23:27) was a fraction of the vast army which maintained law and order throughout the Roman Empire. In the first month of 29 b.c., a year after the battle of Actium, the gates of the temple of Janus at Rome were closed for the first time in 200 years. That significant act was the beginning of the Pax Romana. The Civil War was ended, and the State had no more foreign foes to fear. Augustus found himself master of three standing armies, his own and those of Lepidus and Antony, amounting to 45 legions. He at once undertook that task of military reorganization which was perhaps his greatest and most original achievement. By ruthlessly eliminating inferior elements he obtained a thoroughly efficient force of 25 legions. The time for great field forces, such as Scipio and Caesar had wielded, was now past. An army that could be swiftly mobilized was no longer a necessity, and might easily become a menace, to the Empire. Augustus initiated the policy, which was respected by his successors down to the time of the Antonines, of ‘maintaining the dignity of the Empire, without attempting to enlarge its limits’ (Gibbon, Hist., ch. 1). His conservative policy determined his use of the army. Distributing the legions in the frontier provinces of the Empire-which had the Atlantic as its boundary on the west, the Rhine and the Danube on the north, the Euphrates on the east, and the deserts of Arabia and Africa on the south-he charged them to guard the borders which were exposed to the attacks of restless barbarians. Italy itself was garrisoned by the Praetorian cohorts (see Praetorium).
The legions were recruited from the Roman citizens of Italy and the provinces. Each consisted of 6000 heavy infantry divided into ten cohorts, with a troop of 120 horsemen to act as dispatch riders. The legion was no longer under six tribunes commanding by turns. The supreme authority was now entrusted to a legatus legionis, who was the deputy of the Emperor as commander-in-chief of the whole army. The efficiency of the soldiers depended largely upon the 60 centurions, who formed the backbone of the legion. The term of service was 20 years, and on discharge the legionary received a bounty or land. Many coloniœ were formed for the purpose of providing homes for veterans. Each legion bore a title and a number, e.g., ‘VI. Victrix’ stationed at York, ‘III. Gallica’ at Antioch.
But the legions were not the only guardians of the peace of the Empire. Augustus developed a new order of auxilia. Regiments of infantry (cohortes) or cavalry (alœ), 500 to 1000 strong, were recruited from the subjects, not the citizens, of the provinces, and formed a second force equal in numbers if not in importance to the first. It is estimated that the two forces together made up a regular, long-service army of 400,000 men. The auxiliaries were more lightly armed than the legionaries (see Armour); they were not so well paid; and on their discharge they received a bounty or the Roman franchise.
As Judaea was a province of the second rank, governed by a procurator, it was not (like Syria) garrisoned by legionaries, but by auxiliaries, who had their headquarters in Caesarea. The cohortes and alœ were recruited from the Greek cities of Palestine, from which they derived their names, such as ‘Cohors Sebastenorum,’ or ‘Tyriorum.’ The Jews were expressly exempted from military service under the Roman banners and eagles, which they regarded as idolatrous. Julius Caesar’s edict granting this privilege is preserved by Josephus (Ant. xiv. x. 6).
At the time of the death of Herod Agrippa (a.d. 44), an ala of cavalry and five cohorts were stationed at Caesarea (Jos. Ant. xix. ix. 1-2). Probably they had once belonged to the army of Herod the Great, and had been taken over by the Romans after the deposition of his son Archelaus in a.d. 6 (Schürer, History of the Jewish People (Eng. tr. of GJV).] i. ii. 51). They are often mentioned in the period a.d. 44-66 (Ant. xx. vi. 1, viii. 7), and they were finally drafted into Vespasian’s army in a.d. 67. The relation of the Italian and Augustan cohorts (see Augustan Band and Italian Band) to these auxiliaries is a difficult question. The cohort (σπεῖρα), military tribune (χιλίαρχος), and centurions (ἐκατοντάρχαι) mentioned in the story of St. Paul’s arrest at Jerusalem and transference to Caesarea (Acts 21-23) certainly belonged to the Judaea n auxilia. A single cohort formed the normal garrison of the Holy City (Jos. Bellum Judaicum (Josephus) v. v. 8, where τάγμα is used instead of the more correct σπεῖρα). The barracks (παρεμβολή, used six times in the same narrative) adjoined the fortress of Antonio, close to the N.E. corner of the Temple area (see Castle). At the Jewish festivals a stronger body of troops was drafted from Caesarea for the purpose of keeping order among the pilgrims in the crowded Temple precincts, as the Turkish soldiers now do at Easter among the Christian sects in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. St. Paul was escorted from Jerusalem to Antipatris by 200 foot-soldiers, 70 horsemen (ἱππεῖς), and 200 spearmen (δεξιολάβοι), and thence to Caesarea by the horsemen alone. The precise function of the δεξιολάβοι (an exceedingly rare word, meaning apparently ‘those who grasped their weapons with the right hand’) is very doubtful; see Schürer, i. ii. 56, and Meyer, in loco.

It also denoted a castle or barracks, Acts 21:34,37 ; 22:24 ; 23:10,16,32 .
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Army
Army. I. Jewish army. Every able-bodied man over 20 years of age was a soldier, Numbers 1:3; each tribe formed a division, with its own banner and its own leader, Numbers 2:2; Numbers 10:14; their positions in the camp and on the march were fixed. Numbers 2:1-34; the whole army started and stopped at a given signal, Numbers 10:5-6; so they came up out of Egypt. Exodus 13:18. On the approach of an enemy a selection was made from the general body, Deuteronomy 20:5; 2 Kings 25:19; and officers were appointed, Deuteronomy 20:9. The army was then divided into thousands and hundreds under captains. Numbers 2:34; Numbers 31:14; 2 Chronicles 25:5; 2 Chronicles 26:12. With the kings arose the custom of a body-guard and a standing army. David's band of 600, 1 Samuel 23:13; 1 Samuel 25:13, he retained after he became king, and added the Cherethites and Pelethites. 2 Samuel 15:18; 2 Samuel 20:7. David organized a national militia, divided into twelve divisions, under their respective officers, each of which was called out for one month in the year. 1 Chronicles 27:1-34. The maintenance and equipment of the soldiers at the public expense date from the establishment of a standing army. II. Roman army. The Roman army was divided into legions. The number in a legion varied from 3000 to 6000, each under "chief captains," Acts 21:31, who commanded by turns. The legion was subdivided into ten cohorts ("band,"), Acts 10:1; the cohort into three maniples, and the maniple into two centuries, containing originally 100 men, as the name implies: but subsequently from 50 to 100 men, according to the strength of the legion. There were thus sixty centuries in a legion, each under the command of a centurion. Acts 10:1; Acts 10:22; Matthew 8:5; Matthew 27:54. In addition to the legionary cohorts, independent cohorts of volunteers served under the Roman standards. One of these cohorts was named the Italian, Acts 10:1, because the soldiers in it were from Italy.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Army
I. JEWISH ARMY.--Every man above 20 years of age was a soldier, (Numbers 1:3 ) each tribe formed a regiment, with its own banner and its own leader (Numbers 2:2 ; 10:14 ) their positions in the camp or on the march were accurately fixed, Numb. 2; the whole army started and stopped at a given signal, (Numbers 10:5,6 ) thus they came up out of Egypt ready for the fight. (Exodus 13:18 ) On the approach of an enemy a conscription was made from the general body, under the direction of a muster-master, (20:5; 2 Kings 25:19 ) by whom also the officers were appointed. (20:9) The army had then divided into thousands and hundreds under their respective captains, (Numbers 31:14 ) and still further into families. (Numbers 2:34 ; 2 Chronicles 25:5 ; 26:12 ) With the king arose the custom of maintaining a body-guard, which formed the nucleus of a standing army, and David's band of 600, (1 Samuel 23:13 ; 25:13 ) he retained after he became king, and added the CHERETHITES and PELETHITES . (2 Samuel 15:18 ; 20:7 ) David further organized a national militia, divided into twelve regiments under their respective officers, each of which was called out for one month in the year. (1 Chronicles 27:1 ) ... It does not appear that the system established by David was maintained by the kings of Judah; but in Israel the proximity of the hostile kingdom of Syria necessitated the maintenance of a standing army. The maintenance and equipment of the soldiers at the public expense dated from the establishment of a standing army. It is doubtful whether the soldier ever received pay even under the kings. II. ROMAN ARMY.--The Roman army was divided into legions, the number of which varied considerably (from 3000 to 6000), each under six tribuni ("chief captains,") (Acts 21:31 ) who commanded by turns. The legion was subdivided into ten cohorts ("band,") (Acts 10:1 ) the cohort into three maniples, and the maniple into two centuries, containing originally 100 men, as the name implies, but subsequently from 50 to 100 men, according to the strength of the legion. There were thus 60 centuries in a legion, each under the command of a centurion. (Acts 10:1,22 ; Matthew 8:5 ; 27:54 ) In addition to the legionary cohorts, independent cohorts of volunteers served under the Roman standards. One of these cohorts was named the Italian, (Acts 10:1 ) as consisting of volunteers from Italy. The headquarters of the Roman forces in Judea were at Caesarea.

He immediately seized Coelo-Syria, Phenicia, and Judea; but Scopas, general of the Egyptian Army, entered Judea while Antiochus was occupied by the war against Attalus, and retook those places. After a victory which he had obtained over Scopas, near the springs of Jordan, he became master of the strong places in Coelo-Syria and Samaria; and the Jews submitted freely to him, received him into their city and furnished his Army plentifully with provisions. To defray these charges, he resolved to seize the treasures of the temple of Belus, at Elymais; but the people of that country, informed of his design, surprised and destroyed him, with all his Army, in the year of the world 3817, and before Jesus Christ 187.

After concluding a peace, he immediately returned into Syria, with the young king and his Army.

The troops dismissed by Demetrius, came and joined Tryphon, who, having formed a powerful Army, defeated Demetrius, and forced him to retreat to Seleucia. Tryphon, thus abandoned, retired to Dora, in Phoenicia, whither Antiochus pursued him with an Army of 120,000 foot, 800 horse, and a powerful fleet. Antiochus came in person with an Army, and besieged Jerusalem, which was bravely defended by John Hircanus. The siege was long protracted; and the king divided his Army into seven parts, and guarded all the avenues of the city. To these conditions, except the last, the Jews consented; for they could not be induced to see an Army of strangers in their capital, and chose rather to give hostages and five hundred talents of silver. With an Army of eighty thousand, or, as Orosius says, of one hundred thousand men, he marched toward Persia, and no sooner appeared on the frontiers of that country, than several eastern princes, detesting the pride and avarice of the Persians, came and surrendered. ...

Their orderly ranks are broken; the direction which each warrior for his own safety must take is uncertain; and while one tumultuous mass is making a pass for itself through intervening brushwood and closely matted jungle, and another is hurrying along a different path and encountering similar or perhaps greater impediments, the cool and deliberate pursuers, whether archers or sharp shooters, enjoy an immense advantage in being able to choose their own points of annoyance, and by flank or cross attacks to kill their retreating foes, with scarcely any risk to themselves, but with immense carnage to the routed Army
