archers

archers

Warriors armed with bows and arrows. They were so important that in the Bible a bow may represent general military strength (Hos 1:5). Although individual archers and even target practice are mentioned in the Bible (1Sam 20:35-36), no organized Israelite archery corps is ever described.
