  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Archer 
  a  shooter  with  the  bow  (1  Chr.  10:3).  This  art  was  of  high 
  antiquity  (Gen.  21:20;  27:3).  Saul  was  wounded  by  the  Philistine 
  archers  (1  Sam.  31:3).  The  phrase  "breaking  the  bow"  (Hos.  1:5; 
  Jer.  49:35)  is  equivalent  to  taking  away  one's  power,  while 
  "strengthening  the  bow"  is  a  symbol  of  its  increase  (Gen. 
  49:24).  The  Persian  archers  were  famous  among  the  ancients  (Isa. 
  13:18;  Jer.  49:35;  50:9,  14,  29,  42.  (See  {BOW}).
