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.
(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."
