'uwlam. 1 Chronicles 28:11, of Solomon's temple, a "vestibule open in front and on the sides". The porch (puloon or proaulion), Matthew 26:71, is the passage beneath the housefront from the street to the aule or court inside, open to the sky. This passage or porch was closed next the street by a large folding gate with a small wicket for single persons, kept by a porter (John 18:16-17). The "porches" (John 5:2) were arches or porticoes opening upon and surrounding the reservoir Solomon's porch (John 10:23) was on the E. side of the temple (Josephus, Ant. 20:9, section 7).
