an enclosure for flocks to rest together (Isaiah 13:20)

Sheep-folds are mentioned Numbers 32:16, 24, 36; 2 Samuel 7:8; Zeph. 2:6; John 10:1, etc.

It was prophesied of the cities of Ammon (Ezek. 25:5), Aroer (Isaiah 17:2), and Judaea, that they would be folds or couching-places for flocks.

“Among the pots,” of the King James Version (Psalm 68:13), is rightly in the Revised King James Version, “among the sheepfolds.”
