Wailing-place, Jews': A section of the western wall of the temple area, where the Jews
assemble every Friday afternoon to bewail their desolate condition
(Psalms 79:1,4,5) The stones in this part of the wall are of great size,
and were placed, as is generally believed, in the position in which
they are now found in the time of Solomon. "The congregation at the
wailing-place is one of the most solemn gatherings left to the Jewish
Church, and as the writer gazed at the concourse he experienced a
feeling of sorrow that the remnants of the chosen race should be
heartlessly thrust outside the sacred enclosure of their fathers' holy
temple by men of an alien race and an alien creed. Many of the elders,
seated on the ground, with their backs against the wall, on the west
side of the area, and with their faces turned toward the eternal house,
read out of their well-thumbed Hebrew books passages from the prophetic
writings, such as"
(Isaiah 64:9-12) (King's Recent Discoveries, etc.).
