Forces

Forces [EBD]

of the Gentiles (Isa. 60:5, 11; R.V., "the wealth of the nations") denotes the wealth of the heathen. The whole passage means that the wealth of the Gentile world should be consecrated to the service of the church.

FORCES [ISBE]

FORCES - for'-sis (chayil):

(1) The word is used as a military term, equivalent to army, in 2 Ki 25:23,16 (where the King James Version reads "armies"); 2 Ch 17:2; Jer 40:7, etc.

See ARMY.

(2) In Isa 60:5,11, it is rendered in the Revised Version (British and American) by "wealth," and in Ob verse 11, by "substance."

Two other Hebrew words are also translated "forces" in the King James Version, ma'amatstsim (Job 36:19), and ma`oz (Dan 11:38), the latter being rendered in the Revised Version (British and American) "fortresses."
