Garrison @ (1.) Heb. matstsab, a station; a place where one stands ( 1Samuel:14:12); a military or fortified post ( 1Samuel:13:231Samuel:14:11Samuel:14:4, 6, etc.). (2.) Heb. netsib, a prefect, superintendent; hence a military post ( 1Samuel:10:51Samuel:13:3-4; 2Samuel:8:6). This word has also been explained to denote a pillar set up to mark the Philistine conquest, or an officer appointed to collect taxes; but the idea of a military post seems to be the correct one. (3.) Heb. matstsebah, properly a monumental column; improperly rendered pl. "garrisons" in Ezekiel:26:11; correctly in Revised Version "pillars," marg. "obelisks," probably an idolatrous image.
