        (1.) A portable shield (2 Sam. 22:31; 1 Chr. 5:18).
        (2.) A shield surrounding the person; the targe or round form;
        used once figuratively (Ps. 91:4).
        (3.) A large shield protecting the whole body (Ps. 35:2; Ezek.
        23:24; 26:8).
        (4.) A lance or spear; improperly rendered "buckler" in the
        Authorized Version (1 Chr. 12:8), but correctly in the Revised
        Version "spear."
        The leather of shields required oiling (2 Sam. 1:21; Isa.
        21:5), so as to prevent its being injured by moisture. Copper (=
        "brass") shields were also in use (1 Sam. 17:6; 1 Kings 14:27).
        Those spoken of in 1 Kings 10:16, etc.; 14:26, were probably of
        massive metal.
        The shields David had taken from his enemies were suspended in
        the temple as mementoes (2 Kings 11:10). (See ARMOUR T0000315,
        SHIELD T0003368.)
