Easton's Bible Dictionary - Guard
Heb. tabbah (properly a "cook," and in a secondary sense "executioner," because this office fell to the lot of the cook in Eastern countries), the bodyguard of the kings of Egypt (Genesis 37:36 ) and Babylon (2 Kings 25:8 ; Jeremiah 40:1 ; Daniel 2:14 ).
Heb. rats, properly a "courier," one whose office was to run before the king's chariot (2 Samuel 15:1 ; 1 Kings 1:5 ). The couriers were also military guards (1 Samuel 22:17 ; 2 Kings 10:25 ). They were probably the same who under David were called Pelethites (1 Kings 14:27 ; 2 Samuel 15:1 ).
Heb. mishmereth, one who watches (Nehemiah 4:22 ), or a watch-station (7:3; 12:9; Job 7:12 ). In the New Testament (Mark 6:27 ) the Authorized Version renders the Greek Spekulator By "executioner," earlier English versions by "hangman," the Revised Version by "soldier of his guard." The word properly means a "pikeman" or "halberdier," of whom the bodyguard of kings and princes was composed. In Matthew 27:65,66 ; 28:11 , the Authorized Version renders the Greek Kustodia By "watch," and the Revised Version by "guard," the Roman guard, which consisted of four soldiers, who were relieved every three hours ( Acts 12:4 ). The "captain of the guard" mentioned Acts 28:16 was the commander of the Praetorian troops, whose duty it was to receive and take charge of all prisoners from the provinces.
Webster's Dictionary - Castle-Guard
(n.) The guard or defense of a castle.
(n.) A feudal tenure, obliging the tenant to perform service within the realm, without limitation of time.
(n.) A tax or imposition an a dwelling within a certain distance of a castle, for the purpose of maintaining watch and ward in it; castle-ward.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Guard
An individual or body of troops assigned to protect a person or thing. Guard translates numerous Hebrew and Greek terms. Tabbach (literally butcher or slaughterer) is a Hebrew term used only for officers of foreign kings (of Pharaoh, Genesis 37:36 ; Genesis 39:1 ; of Nebuchadnezzar, 2 Kings 25:8-20 ; Jeremiah 39:9-13 ). Two of the terms for guards are derived from the root shamar (to hedge about, guard, protect). The KJV often translated these terms by “watch” ( Nehemiah 4:9 ; Nehemiah 7:3 ). The most common designation for the guards of the kings of Israel and Judah was “runners” (1 Samuel 22:17 ; 1 Kings 1:5 ; 1 Kings 14:27-28 ) from the use of such guards to escort the king's chariot. Modern translation frequently use the expression “court of the guard” where the KJV used “court of the prison” (Nehemiah 3:25 ; Jeremiah 32:2 ). Two terms for guard are used only one time. The first refers to the large guard gathered to defend the boy king Joash (2 Chronicles 23:10 ). The second refers to God as the guard of His people (Zechariah 9:8 ).
Three Greek nouns are translated as guard. Hyperetes is used for those guarding the high priest's quarters ( Matthew 26:58 ; Mark 14:54 ). Koustodia ( Matthew 27:66 ; Matthew 28:11 ) is a Latin loan word, suggesting that this guard was indeed a Roman guard. Philake is used for stations of guards in Acts 12:10 .

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Guard
(1) In Acts 5:23; Acts 12:6; Acts 12:19 the Authorized Version renders φύλακες ‘keepers,’ which the Revised Version retains in the former passage, where the watchmen are Jewish, but changes into ‘guards’ in the latter, where they are Roman. Arrested by the high priest Annas, and put ‘in public ward’ (Acts 5:18 : ἐν τηρήσει δημοσίᾳ), Peter and John were not chained; their keepers merely shut the prison-house (δεσμωτήριον) and stood on guard outside. But when St. Peter was arrested by Herod Agrippa, and imprisoned in the fortress of Antonia or the adjoining barracks, he was chained to two soldiers, while other two kept watch at the door of the prison (φυλακή, Vulgate carcer). The station of the latter two was apparently ‘the first ward’ (φυλακή, Vulgate custodia) which the prisoner had to pass before he could effect his escape. The four soldiers together made a quaternion (τετράδιον), and four such bodies of armed men were told off to mount guard in succession during the four watches into which, in Roman fashion, the night was divided.
(2) The above-named Agrippa himself, having incurred the displeasure of Tiberius, once had the experience of being chained as a prisoner for six months to soldiers of the Imperial bodyguard in Rome. It was fortunate for him that the Emperor’s sister-in-law Antonia, who used her influence with Macro, the prœfectus praetorio, ‘procured that the soldiers who kept him should be of a gentle nature, and that the centurion who was over them, and was to diet with him, should be of the same disposition’ (Jos. Ant. XVIII. vi. 7). Tiberius’ death restored him to liberty, and Caligula consoled him with the gift of a chain of gold, equal in weight to the one of iron which he had worn (ib. vi. 10).
(3) To another such iron chain, which coupled St. Paul to one soldier after another of the same Imperial guard, allusion is made in each of the Captivity Epistles. Thanks to the favourable report given by the centurion Junius on handing over his charge to the praefect of the Praetorians, St. Paul probably received better treatment than an ordinary prisoner; but the fact remained that in his own hired house he was the δέσμιος of Christ Jesus, always wearing galling ‘bonds’ (δεσμοί, Philippians 1:7; Philippians 1:13-14; Philippians 1:16, Colossians 4:18, Philemon 1:10; Philemon 1:13, 2 Timothy 2:9), called also a ‘chain’ (ἅλυσις, Ephesians 6:20, 2 Timothy 1:16). Great good, however, resulted from his imprisonment; for through the frequent relief of the guard, and the Apostle’s skill in changing an enforced fellowship with armed men into a spiritual communion, the real significance of his bonds-their relation to his faith in Christ-gradually became known among all ‘the Praetorians,’ the finest regiment of the Roman army (Philippians 1:12-13). The arguments for this interpretation of the word πραιτώριον are fully stated by Lightfoot, Philippians4, 1878, p. 99f. Other possible explanations will be found under Palace.
In the Republican days the cohors praetoria, or cohortes praetoriœ, formed the bodyguard of the praetor or propraetor, who was governor of a province with military powers. Under the Empire the Praetorians came to be the Imperial bodyguard, which, as constituted by Augustus, was made up of nine cohorts, each of a thousand picked men. They were distinguished from other legionaries by shorter service and double pay, and on discharge they received a generous bounty or grant of land. Tiberius concentrated the force in a strongly fortified camp to the east of Rome, on a rectangle of 39 acres, where the modern Italian army also has barracks. One cohort, wearing civilian garb, was always stationed at the Emperor’s house on the Palatine; others were often sent to foreign service. The Praetorians were under a prœfectus praetorio, or more often two, sometimes even three prœfecti. These were originally soldiers, but ultimately the office was mostly filled by lawyers, whose duty it was to relieve the Emperor in certain kinds of civil and criminal jurisdiction. One of Trajan’s rescripts to Pliny (Ep. 57) indicates that the proper course to take with a certain Bithynian prisoner is to hand him over in chains ‘ad praefectos praetorii mei,’ and the case seems to be parallel to that of the Apostle, who made an appeal unto Caesar (Acts 25:11; Acts 25:21).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Guard (2)
GUARD.—1. Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 rendering of κουστωδία (Lat. custodia), Matthew 27:65-66; Matthew 28:11, Authorized Version ‘watch’; obtained by the chief priests and Pharisees from Pilate to guard the sepulchre. The need of Pilate’s authorization and the risk of punishment from him (Matthew 28:14) show that this guard must have consisted, not of the Jewish Temple police, but of soldiers from the Roman cohort at Jerusalem; possibly, though not probably, the same as had guarded the cross (ἔχετε, Matthew 27:65, is probably imperative, ‘have (take) a guard’). A watch usually consisted of four men (Polyb. vi. 33), each of whom watched in turn, while the others rested beside him so as to be roused by the least alarm; but in this case the guards may have been more numerous.
2. ‘A soldier of his [1] guard’ ( Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 translation of σπεκουλάτωρ, Lat. speculator, Authorized Version ‘executioner’) beheaded John the Baptist, Mark 6:27. Speculatores were originally spies or scouts (from specula, ‘a look-out’); but we find them chiefly employed (a) as messengers or couriers, carrying official despatches; (b) as military executioners. A certain number were attached to each legion, besides others belonging to the Praetorian guard, who were closely attached to the Emperor’s person and ready for any special service. There are many examples in classical writers (e.g. Seneca, de Ira, i. ii. 4), Acts of Martyrs, and Rabbinic writings, of their employment as executioners; for reff. see Schürer, Wetstein, etc. The Herods had bodyguards (δορυφόροι, σωματοφύλεκες, Josephus BJ i. xxxiii. 7–9, ii. xv. 1, etc.), and may have given them the Roman title of speculatores; or the word may here be used generally for an executioner. Herod sent some of his guards (δορυφόροι) to kill his son Antipater (Ant. xvii. vii. 1, BJ i. xxxiii. 7).

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Keep, Watch, Guard
A. Verb.
Nâtsar (נָצַר, Strong's #5341), “to watch, to guard, to keep.” Common to both ancient and modern Hebrew, this verb is found also in ancient Ugaritic. It occurs some 60 times in the Hebrew Old Testament. Nâtsar is found for the first time in the biblical text in Exod. 34:7, where it has the sense of “keeping with faithfulness.” This meaning is usually found when man is the subject: “keeping” the covenant (Deut. 33:9); “keeping” the law (Ps. 105:45 and 10 times in Ps. 119); “keeping” the rules of parents (Prov. 6:20).
Nâtsar is frequently used to express the idea of “guarding” something, such as a vineyard (Isa. 27:3) or a fortification (Nah. 2:1). “To watch” one’s speech is a frequent concern, so advice is given “to watch” one’s mouth (Prov. 13:3), the tongue (Ps. 34:13), and the lips (Ps. 141:3). Many references are made to God as the one who “preserves” His people from dangers of all kinds (Deut. 32:10; Ps. 31:23). Generally, nâtsar is a close synonym to the much more common verb, shâmar, “to keep, tend.” Sometimes “to keep” has the meaning of “to besiege,” as in Isa. 1:8, “… as a besieged city.”
Shâmar (שָׁמַר, Strong's #8104), “to keep, tend, watch over, retain.” This verb occurs in most Semitic languages (biblical Aramaic attests only a noun formed from this verb). Biblical Hebrew attests it about 470 times and in every period.
Shâmar means “to keep” in the sense of “tending” and taking care of. So God put Adam “into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it” (Gen. 2:15—the first occurrence). In 2 Kings 22:14 Harhas is called “keeper of the wardrobe” (the priest’s garments). Satan was directed “to keep,” or “to tend” (so as not to allow it to be destroyed) Job’s life: “Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life” (Job 2:6). In this same sense God is described as the keeper of Israel (Ps. 121:4).
The word also means “to keep” in the sense of “watching over” or giving attention to. David, ironically chiding Abner for not protecting Saul, says: “Art not thou a valiant man? and who is like to thee in Israel? wherefore then hast thou not kept thy lord the king?” (1 Sam. 26:15). In extended application this emphasis comes to mean “to watch, observe”: “And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli [1] her mouth” (1 Sam. 1:12). Another extended use of the verb related to this emphasis appears in covenantal contexts. In such cases “keep” means “to watch over” in the sense of seeing that one observes the covenant, keeping one to a covenant. God says of Abraham: “For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment …” (Gen. 18:19). As God had said earlier, “Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations” (Gen. 17:9). When used in close connection with another verb, shâmar can signify carefully or watchfully doing that action: “And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the Lord hath put in my mouth?” (Num. 23:12). Not only does shâmar signify watching, but it signifies doing it as a watchman in the sense of fulfilling a responsibility: “And the spies saw a man come forth out of the city …” (Judg. 1:24).
In a third group of passages this verb means “to keep” in the sense of saving or “retaining.” When Jacob told his family about his dream, “his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying” (Gen. 37:11); he “retained” it mentally. Joseph tells Pharaoh to appoint overseers to gather food: “And let them … lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities” (Gen. 41:35); let them not give it out but see that it is “retained” in storage.
In three passages shâmar seems to have the same meaning as the Akkadian root, “to revere.” So the psalmist says: “I have hated them that regard [2] lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord” (Ps. 31:6).

Mishmâr (מִשְׁמָר, Strong's #4929), “guard; guardpost.” In the first of its 22 occurrences mishmâr means “guard”: “And he put them in ward [3] in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison …” (Gen. 40:3). The word implies “guardpost” in Neh. 7:3. The word also refers to men on “guard” (Neh. 4:23) and to groups of attendants (Neh. 12:24).
Mishmereth (מִשְׁמֶרֶת, Strong's #4931), “those who guard; obligation.” This noun appears 78 times. The word refers to “those who guard” in 2 Kings 11:5: “… A third part of you that enter in on the sabbath shall even be keepers of the watch of the king’s house.” In Gen. 26:5 the word refers to an “obligation”: “Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”
Some other nouns are related to the verb shamar. Shemarim refers to “dregs of wine, lees.” One of the 4 appearances of this word is in Isa. 25:6: “… shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.” The noun shamrah means “guard, watch.” The single appearance of this word is in Ps. 141:3. Shimmurim means a “night vigil.” In Exod. 12:42 this word carries the meaning of “night vigil” in the sense of “night of watching”: “It is a night to be much observed unto the Lord for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the Lord to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.” This noun occurs twice in this entry and in no other verse. ’Ashmurah (or ’ashmoret) refers to “watch.” This noun occurs 7 times and in Exod. 14:24 refers to “morning watch”: “… that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians.…”

Now, what will the soldier do? If he imitates those who before believing wish to see and feel, and like the apostle Thomas wait for palpable proof before relying upon testimony, he will say, 'a captain of the Guard always wears a captain's uniform, and mine is only that of a common soldier. But if, on the contrary, he believes fully and implicitly the emperor's word, and that his rank as captain of the Guard depends not upon the uniform he wears, but that the uniform must be the consequence and evidence of his rank (and this will be his thought if he honours the emperor), he will not hesitate because of his dress, nor will he return to the line. On seeing him, one of the generals scornfully said, 'What does this fellow want here?' 'This fellow,' replied the soldier proudly, 'is a captain of the Guard

Guard - (1) In Acts 5:23; Acts 12:6; Acts 12:19 the Authorized Version renders φύλακες ‘keepers,’ which the Revised Version retains in the former passage, where the watchmen are Jewish, but changes into ‘guards’ in the latter, where they are Roman. Arrested by the high priest Annas, and put ‘in public ward’ (Acts 5:18 : ἐν τηρήσει δημοσίᾳ), Peter and John were not chained; their keepers merely shut the prison-house (δεσμωτήριον) and stood on Guard outside. The four soldiers together made a quaternion (τετράδιον), and four such bodies of armed men were told off to mount Guard in succession during the four watches into which, in Roman fashion, the night was divided. ...
(2) The above-named Agrippa himself, having incurred the displeasure of Tiberius, once had the experience of being chained as a prisoner for six months to soldiers of the Imperial bodyguard in Rome. Paul to one soldier after another of the same Imperial Guard, allusion is made in each of the Captivity Epistles. Great good, however, resulted from his imprisonment; for through the frequent relief of the Guard, and the Apostle’s skill in changing an enforced fellowship with armed men into a spiritual communion, the real significance of his bonds-their relation to his faith in Christ-gradually became known among all ‘the Praetorians,’ the finest regiment of the Roman army (Philippians 1:12-13). ...
In the Republican days the cohors praetoria, or cohortes praetoriœ, formed the bodyguard of the praetor or propraetor, who was governor of a province with military powers. Under the Empire the Praetorians came to be the Imperial bodyguard, which, as constituted by Augustus, was made up of nine cohorts, each of a thousand picked men
Army - 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. 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. ...
The body Guard was permanently maintained (1 Kings 14:28), the militia only exceptionally called out. ...
The "Italian band" or cohort consisted of volunteers from Italy, perhaps the procurator's body Guard. 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). "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

The emperor was "praetor " or "commander in chief"; so the barrack of his bodyguard was the "praetorium ". The soldiers relieving one another in Guard would naturally spread through the camp the gospel story heard from Paul, which was the occasion of his imprisonment. Manning, describes a remarkable illustration of the reference to "Caesar's household": "in the chambers which were occupied as Guard rooms by the Praetorian troops on duty in the palace, a number of rude caricatures are found roughly scratched upon the walls, just such as may be seen upon barrack walls in every part of the world.

Philippians, Epistle to - ‘Prætorium’ might, indeed, mean Herod’s palace, which was used as the headquarters of the Roman governor in Cæsarea, but the words ‘in the whole Prætorium’ seem to point to the bodyguard of the Emperor, though Mommsen supposes that the conditions are best realized if the words imply that St. Paul was handed over to the judicial prefects of the Prætorian Guard, who presided over the supreme Imperial court in Rome. No sufficient proof has been adduced that the word was used for the Emperor’s palace in Rome, or for the barracks of the Guard. His imprisonment has, contrary to expectation, led to the spread of the gospel, partly by his being chained to the Prætorian Guards, partly through a new courage among his friends, and partly through envious rivalry

Blood - For this prohibition no moral reason seems capable of being offered; nor does it clearly appear that blood is an unwholesome aliment, which some think was the physical reason of its being inhibited; and if, in fact, blood is deleterious as food, there seems no greater reason why this should be pointed out by special revelation to man, to Guard him against injury, than many other unwholesome ailments

Temple - It only remains to add, that it appears, from several passages of Scripture, that the Jews had a body of soldiers who Guarded the temple, to prevent any disturbances during the ministration of such an immense number of priests and Levites.

Gnosticism - While we may see in the NT certain germs which afterwards came to maturity in Gnosticism, we must be on our Guard lest we read too much into NT phraseology, and there by draw wrong conclusions. The stress laid upon epignosis in later books of the NT, Pauline and Petrine, and the marked prominence given to the cognate terms in 1 John, clearly indicate the importance placed on the idea by Apostolic writers as a safeguard of the Christian life. The spiritual man ( 1 Corinthians 2:15 ; 1 Corinthians 3:1 ), or the perfect or ripe man ( 1 Corinthians 2:8 ), is the man who knows ; and this knowledge which is at once intellectual, moral and spiritual, is one of the greatest safeguards against every form of error, and one of the choicest secrets of the enjoyment of the revelation of God in Christ

Marriage - The law must, therefore, for these and many other weighty reasons, be cognizant of marriage; must prescribe various regulations respecting it; require publicity of the contract; and Guard some of the great injunctions of religion in the matter by penalties.

Law - Is it not then highly remarkable, that it is under this character the Divinity is described on his first manifestation to the Jewish lawgiver?

For the addition of the last, "Thou shalt not covet," proves clearly that in all, the dispositions of the heart, as much as the immediate outward act, is the object of the divine Legislator; and thus it forms a comment on the meaning, as well as a Guard for the observance, of all the preceding commands

And it has been supported in the world by the same power through a course of many ages, amidst the treachery of its friends, the opposition of its enemies, the dangers of prosperous periods, and the persecutions and violence of adverse circumstances; all which must have destroyed it, if it had not been founded in truth, and Guarded by the protection of an almighty Providence
