King James Dictionary

Engine: Warlike Invention.

And Uzziah prepared for them throughout all the host shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones. And he made in Jerusalem ENGINEs, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. (2 Chronicles 26:14-15)

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Engine:

a term applied exclusively to military affairs in the Bible. The engines to which the term is applied in 2 Chronicles 26:15 were designed to propel various missiles from the walls of the besieged town. One, with which the Hebrews were acquainted, was the battering ram, described in Ezekiel 26:9 and still more precisely in Ezekiel 4:2; 21:22.
