2 Chronicles 20:5

2 Chronicles 20:5

And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and
Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord
In the temple, in the court of the people, where the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem were assembled, in the midst of which he stood very probably on the brasen scaffold erected by Solomon, ( 2 Chronicles 6:13 ) , before the new court:
which must be the court of the priests, for he stood in the great court, or court of the people, and before this, which might be so called, because renewed or repaired when the altar was by Asa, ( 2 Chronicles 15:8 ) . Dr. Lightfoot F20 thinks it was the court of the women; but it is a question whether there was any such court in the first temple; or that the great court was then divided into two, one for the men, the other for the women.
