Smith - (Easton's Bible Dictionary)

The Hebrews were not permitted by the Philistines in the days of Samuel to have a smith amongst them, lest they should make them swords and spears (1 Sam. 13:19). Thus the Philistines sought to make their conquest permanent (comp. 2 Kings 24:16).

Smith - (Webster's 1828 Dictionary)

SMITH, n.

1. Literally, the striker, the beater; hence, one who forges with the hammer; one who works in metals; as an iron-smith; gold-smith; silver-smith, _c. Nor yet the smith hath learn'd to form a sword.

2. He that makes or effects any thing.

Hence the name Smith, which, from the number of workmen employed in working metals in early ages, is supposed to be more common than any other.

SMITH, v.t. To beat into shape; to forge. [Not in use.]
