Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4753 Greek: strateuma



(a) "an army" of any size, large or small, Mat 22:7; Rev 9:16; 19:14, 19 (twice);

(b) "a company of soldiers," such as Herod's bodyguard, Luk 23:11 (RV, "soldiers") or the soldiers of a garrison, Act 23:10, 27 (RV, "the soldiers," for AV, "an army").

2 Strong's Number: g4760 Greek: stratopedon


from stratos, "a military host," pedon, "a plain," strictly denotes "an army encamped, a camp;" in Luk 21:20, of the soldiers which were to be encamped about Jerusalem in fulfillment of the Lord's prophecy concerning the destruction of the city; the phrase might be translated "by camps" (or encampments).

3 Strong's Number: g3925 Greek: parembole


lit., "a casting in among, an insertion" (para, "among," ballo, "to throw"), in the Macedonian dialect, was a military term. In the NT it denotes the distribution of troops in army formation, "armies," Hbr 11:34; a camp, as of the Israelites, Exd 19:17; 29:14; 32:17; hence, in Hbr 13:11, 13, of Jerusalem, since the city was to the Jews what the camp in the wilderness had been to the Israelites; in Rev 20:9, the "armies" or camp of the saints, at the close of the Millennium. It also denoted a castle or barracks, Act 21:34, 37; 22:24; 23:10, 16, 32.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.
