2 Chronicles 18:9 (King James Version)
And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah sat either of them on his throne, clothed in their robes, and they sat in a void place at the entering in of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.
- sat either
- 1 Kings 22:10-12 ; Isaiah 14:9 ; Ezekiel 26:16 ; Daniel 7:9 ; Matthew 19:28
- 29 ; Matthew 6:29 ; 11:8
- void place
- or, floor.
- Threshing-floors, among the ancient Jews, as we have before remarked, were only, as they are to this day in the East, round level plats of ground in the open air. Hence a floor might well be near the gate of Samaria, which was built on a hill, and afford no improper place for the kings of Judah and Israel to give audience to the prophets.
- all the prophets
- Jeremiah 27:14-16
