Lembing adalah sebuah tombak ringan yang biasanya dirancang untuk dilemparkan, dulunya sebagai senjata jarak jauh, namun kini umumnya dipakai untuk olahraga. Lembing biasanya nyaris selalu dilemparkan menggunakan tangan, tak seperti umban, busur, dan busur silang, yang meluncurkan proyektil-proyektil dengan bantuan mekanisme yang dipegang tangan.
