Stall

STALL (Heb. marbēq, ’āvas, ’urvâh, repheth, ’ēvūs, Gr. phatnē). A place for the care of livestock. One kind was not enclosed, often being a thatched or tented shelter, at times a fattening place (Amos.6.4 kjv, cf. niv; Mal.4.2). In winter horses were kept in barns in which each had its fenced enclosure. Solomon’s barns provided stalls for four thousand horses (2Chr.9.25; forty thousand in 1Kgs.4.26). The stall where Christ was born was a feeding place, usually connected with an inn (Luke.13.15).
