What does Sabaoth mean?

edited December 1969 in Coptic Orthodox Church
Hey everyone.

I was just wondering if anyone here knew what the word Sabaoth meant.
I know that on the Liturgy we say "Holy Holy Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth..." but do not know what/where Sabaoth is.

If anyone knows, that would be great.

In Christ,


  • It means 'hosts' or 'armies'.

    So it is the Lord of Hosts, the heavenly hosts.

    Father Peter
