'Troops' in the Bible
There came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an army of a million troops, and three hundred chariots; and he came to Mareshah.
His troops come on together, build a siege ramp against me, and encamp around my tent.
I will encamp against you all around you, and will lay siege against you with posted troops. I will raise siege works against you.
"How can I pardon you? Your children have forsaken me, and sworn by what are no gods. When I had fed them to the full, they committed adultery, and assembled themselves in troops at the prostitutes' houses.
Now you shall gather yourself in troops, daughter of troops. He has laid siege against us. They will strike the judge of Israel with a rod on the cheek.
He summons his picked troops. They stumble on their way. They dash to its wall, and the protective shield is put in place.
