  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Armoury 
  the  place  in  which  armour  was  deposited  when  not  used  (Neh. 
  3:19;  Jer.  50:25).  At  first  each  man  of  the  Hebrews  had  his  own 
  arms,  because  all  went  to  war.  There  were  no  arsenals  or 
  magazines  for  arms  till  the  time  of  David,  who  had  a  large 
  collection  of  arms,  which  he  consecrated  to  the  Lord  in  his 
  tabernacle  (1  Sa,.  21:9;  2  Sam.  8:7-12;  1  Chr.  26:26,  27).
