   Elisha (2 Kings 4:10), was an upper chamber over the porch
   through the hall toward the street. This was the "guest chamber"
   where entertainments were prepared (Mark 14:14). There were also
   "chambers within chambers" (1 Kings 22:25; 2 Kings 9:2). To
   enter into a chamber is used metaphorically of prayer and

   (Job 9:9) are probably the constelations of the southern
