Gate: 1. Of cities, as of Jerusalem (Jeremiah 37:13; Nehemiah 1:3; 2:3; 3:3) of Sodom

(Genesis 19:1) of Gaza (Judges 16:3)

2. Of royal palaces (Nehemiah 2:8)

3. Of the temple of Solomon (1 Kings 6:34,35; 2 Kings 18:16)

4. Of the holy place (1 Kings 6:31,32; Ezekiel 41:23,24)

5. Of the outer courts of the temple, the beautiful gate (Acts 3:2)

6. Tombs (Matthew 27:60)

7. Prisons (Acts 12:10; 16:27)

8. Caverns (1 Kings 19:13)

9. Camps (Exodus 32:26,27; Hebrews 13:12) The materials of which gates were made were, a. Iron and brass (Psalms 107:16; Isaiah 45:2; Acts 12:10) b. Stones and pearls (Isaiah 54:12; Revelation 21:21) c. Wood (Judges 16:3) probably. At the gates of cities courts of justice were frequently held, and hence "judges of the gate" are spoken of (Deuteronomy 16:18; 17:8; 21:19; 25:6,7) etc. At the gates prophets also frequently delivered their messages (Proverbs 1:21; 8:3; Isaiah 29:21; Jeremiah 17:19,20; 26:10) Criminals were punished without the gates (1 Kings 21:13; Acts 7:59) By the "gates of righteousness" we are probably to understand those of the temple (Psalms 118:19) "The gates of hell" (R.V., "gates of Hades") (Matthew 16:18) are generally interpreted as meaning the power of Satan, but probably they may mean the power of death, denoting that the Church of Christ shall never die.
