Booty taken in war, in which all the soldiers were permitted by David to share, whether actually engaged in battle or not, 1 Samuel 30:21-25. A portion of what was thus gained was devoted to the Lord of hosts as early as the time of Abraham, Genesis 14:20; and under the Mosaic legislation a definite rule for this purpose was established, Numbers 31:26-47 1 Chronicles 26:27.

Christ "spoiled" principalities and powers when by his atoning work he triumphed over Satan and his hosts, and deprived them of their power to injure his people, Colossians 2:15. Paul warns Christians not to permit human philosophy, tradition, etc., to "spoil" them, that is, to rob them of Scripture truths and spiritual blessings, Colossians 2:8. See PHILOSOPHY.
