Sabbath, Court of The
Sabbath, Court Of The (מוּסִך השִּׁבָּת, musak hash-shabbath; Sept. ὁ θεμέλιος τῆς καθέδρας τῶν σαββάτων; Vulg. Musach sabbati, 2Ki 16:18), is understood to mean a canopy under which Ahaz used to stand, at the entrance of the porch of the Temple, when he attended the service; but which he removed when he became an idolater, to show his contempt, and his intention of not resorting thither any more. SEE COURT. So we see in 2Ch 28:24 that "he shut up the doors of the house of God" that none might enter to worship. SEE AHAZ.
