Sabaoth (săb'a-ŏth or sa-bâ'oth), hosts. The phrase "Lord of Sabaoth" occurs twice in the New Testament, in Romans 9:29 and James 5:4 It should not be mistaken as referring to the Sabbath. But it is the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew Tsebaoth, "hosts" or "armies," so often recurring in the Old Testament, "the Lord of hosts," Isaiah 1:9, "the Lord God of hosts," i.e., the heavenly bodies, the angels, or the people of God.
