'Troops' in the Bible
About forty thousand battle-ready troops marched past the Lord to fight on the plains of Jericho.
He said to the people, "Move forward, march around the city, and have the armed troops go ahead of the ark of the Lord."
While the trumpets were blowing, the armed troops went in front of the priests who blew the trumpets, and the rear guard went behind the ark.
and the seven priests carrying seven trumpets marched in front of the ark of the Lord. While the trumpets were blowing, the armed troops went in front of them, and the rear guard went behind the ark of the Lord.
I and all the troops who are with me will approach the city. When they come out to fight us like before, we will retreat from them.
So Joshua sent them out, and they went to the ambush site and waited between Bethel and Ai, to the west of Ai. But he spent that night with the troops.
Joshua started early the next morning and mobilized them. Then he and the elders of Israel led the troops up to Ai.
All the troops that were with him marched up and drew near the city. They camped north of Ai on the other side of the valley.
Then all the troops of Ai were summoned to pursue them, and they pursued Joshua and were drawn away from the city.
As soon as he stretched out his hand, the troops in ambush quickly got up from their place of hiding and attacked. They entered the city, seized it, and immediately set it on fire.
The men of Ai turned and looked back, and smoke from the city was rising to the sky! They could not escape in any direction, and the troops who had fled to the wilderness now became the pursuers.
So the five Amorite kings (the kings of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, and Eglon) and all their troops gathered together and advanced. They deployed their troops and fought against Gibeon.
When they brought the kings out to Joshua, he summoned all the men of Israel and said to the commanders of the troops who accompanied him, "Come here and put your feet on the necks of these kings." So they came up and put their feet on their necks.
Joshua and all Israel marched from Libnah to Lachish. He deployed his troops and fought against it.
