Fold
        an enclosure for flocks to rest together (Isa. 13:20).
        Sheep-folds are mentioned Num. 32:16, 24, 36; 2 Sam. 7:8; Zeph.
        2:6; John 10:1, etc. It was prophesied of the cities of Ammon
        (Ezek. 25:5), Aroer (Isa. 17:2), and Judaea, that they would be
        folds or couching-places for flocks. "Among the pots," of the
        Authorized Version (Ps. 68:13), is rightly in the Revised
        Version, "among the sheepfolds."
