The Definition of the word Archer


A shooter with the bow (1 Chr. 10:3). This art was of high antiquity (Gen. 21:20; 27:3). Saul was wounded by the Philistine "archers (1 Sam. 31:3). The phrase "breaking the bow" (Hos. 1:5;" "Jer. 49:35) is equivalent to taking away one's power, while" strengthening the bow is a symbol of its increase (Gen. 49:24). The Persian archers were famous among the ancients (Isa. "13:18; Jer. 49:35; 50:9, 14, 29, 42. (See [26]BOW)."
