  27. The gate and gateways of eastern cities anciently held and still hold an important part, not only in the defence but in the public economy of the place. They are thus sometimes taken as representing the city itself. ( Genesis 22:17 ; 24:60 ; 12:12 ; Judges 5:8 ; Ruth 4:10 ; Psalms 87:2 ; 122:2 ) Among the special purposes for which they were used may be mentioned. 1. As places of public resort. ( Genesis 19:1 ; 23:10 ; 34:20 ; 24 ; 1 Samuel 4:18 ) etc. 2. Places for public deliberation, administration of Justice, or of audience for kings and rulers or ambassadors. ( 16:18 ; 21:19 ; 25:7 ; Joshua 20:4 ; Judges 9:35 ) etc. 3. Public markets. ( 2 Kings 7:1 ) In heathen towns the open spaces near the gates appear to have been sometimes used as places for sacrifice. ( Acts 14:13 ) comp 2Kin 23:8 Regarded therefore as positions of great importance, the gates of cities were carefully guarded, and closed at nightfall. ( 3:5 ; Joshua 2:5 Joshua 2:7 ; Judges 9:40 Judges 9:44 ) They contained chambers over the gateway. ( 2 Samuel 18:24 ) The doors themselves of the larger gates mentioned in Scripture were two leaved, plated with metal, closed with locks and fastened with metal bars. ( 3:6 ; Psalms 107:16 ; Isaiah 46:1 Isaiah 46:2 ) Gates not defended by iron were of course liable to be set on fire by an enemy. ( Judges 9:52 ) The gateways of royal palaces and even of private houses were often richly ornamented. Sentences from the law were inscribed on and above the gates. ( 6:9 ; Isaiah 64:12 ; Revelation 21:21 ) The gates of Solomons temple were very massive and costly, being overlaid with gold and carving. ( 1 Kings 6:34 1 Kings 6:35 ; 2 Kings 18:16 ) Those of the holy place were of olive wood, two-leaved and overlaid with gold; those of the temple of fir.

  37. Wood ( Judges 16:3 ) probably. At the gates of cities courts of justice were frequently held, and hence "judges of the gate" are spoken of ( Deuteronomy 16:18 ; 17:8 ; 21:19 ; Deuteronomy 25:6 Deuteronomy 25:7 , etc.). At the gates prophets also frequently delivered their messages ( Proverbs 1:21 ; 8:3 ; Isaiah 29:21 ; Jeremiah 17:19 Jeremiah 17:20 ; 26:10 ). Criminals were punished without the gates ( 1 Kings 21:13 ; Acts 7:59 ). By the "gates of righteousness" we are probably to understand those of the temple ( Psalms 118:19 ). "The gates of hell" (RSV, "gates of Hades") Matthew 16:18 , are generally interpreted as meaning the power of Satan, but probably they may mean the power of death, denoting that the Church of Christ shall never die.
