What is a Booty?
     Moses laid down the law upon this subject in Num 31:26-30. In regard to the army, David made the additional rule that those who "tarried by the stuff" -- the baggage-guard -- should share equally with those who fought. 1 Sam 30:24. No booty could be taken from the Canaanites, as they were all, with all they had, devoted to destruction. But in wars outside of Palestine the practice was allowable. Metallic articles were kept for holy use. Josh 6:17-19; cf. Deut 20:12-18.
