What does the Posuk mean when it says all of the Army of Hashem Left when did Bnei Yisroel turn into an Army or is it referring to Bnei Yisroel?
יָצְאוּ כָּל צִבְאוֹת יְ־הֹוָ־ה מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם

On a simpler level, wouldn't it just be meant to stress that the Jewish People left Egypt in an organized way, not as an undisciplined rabble of fleeing slaves?
Ok, the answer is the Seforim Hakedoshim say this Posuk is not referring to Bnei Yisreol but the the angels and other heavenly beings the ARMIES of Hashem that went out with Klal Yisroel,as they did some of the work to double it, so the Jews could go out early to make up for the missing years, they added workers that is these angels to the desert, Hence most times throughout Nach it uses the word צבאת it is referring to Hashem or his Heavenly angels.
