Buckler: 1. A portable shield (2 Samuel 22:31; 1 Chronicles 5:18)

2. A shield surrounding the person; the targe or round form; used once figuratively (Psalms 91:4)

3. A large shield protecting the whole body (Psalms 35:2; Ezekiel 23:24; 26:8)

4. A lance or spear; improperly rendered "buckler" in the Authorized Version (1 Chronicles 12:8) but correctly in the Revised Version "spear." The leather of shields required oiling

(2 Samuel 1:21; Isaiah 21:5) so as to prevent its being injured by moisture. Copper ("brass") shields were also in use (1 Samuel 17:6)

(1 Kings 14:27) Those spoken of in (1 Kings 10:16; 14:26) were probably of massive metal. The shields David had taken from his enemies were suspended in the temple as mementoes (2 Kings 11:10)
