The meaning of Armory in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

ar'-mer-i: (1) ('otsar; thesauros): A storehouse (I Kings 7:51; Nehemiah 10:38), but employed figuratively of the stored-up anger of Yahweh which breaks forth in judgments (Jeremiah 50:25). (2) (nesheq): Identical with Solomon's "house of the forest of Lebanon," the arsenal close to the temple (I Kings 10:17; Nehemiah 3:19; Isaiah 22:8), in which were stored the shields and targets of beaten gold. (3) (talpiyoth): A puzzling word rendered "armory" in our versions (Song of Solomon 4:4)—"the tower of David builded for an armory, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men." the Revised Version margin renders "builded with turrets."
