Lord of Sabaoth

SABAOTH, LORD OF (săb'ă-ōth, Gr. sabaoth, hosts). The “Lord of Sabaoth” is the same as “Lord of hosts.” The phrase is used in the KJV of Rom.9.29 and Jas.5.4, where NIV has “Lord Almighty.” The “Lord of hosts” is often found in the OT. It has sometimes been explained as meaning that the Lord is the God of the armies of Israel, but more likely it means that all created agencies and forces are under the command and leadership of the Lord. The title expresses his great power.
