A man must not carry a sword, bow, shield, lance, or spike on the Sabbath... Rabbi Eliezer said, "But they are adornments [which are worn rather than carried]." The sages said: "They are merely shameful, for it is said: 'And they shall beat their swords into plowshares And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not take up Sword against nation; They shall never again know war'" (Isaiah 2:4).
