Window: Properly only an opening in a house for the admission of light and
air, covered with lattice-work, which might be opened or closed
(2 Kings 1:2; Acts 20:9) The spies in Jericho and Paul at Damascus were
let down from the windows of houses abutting on the town wall
(Joshua 2:15; 2 Corinthians 11:33) The clouds are metaphorically called the
"windows of heaven"
(Genesis 7:11; Malachi 3:10) The word thus rendered in
(Isaiah 54:12) ought rather to be rendered "battlements" (LXX.,
"bulwarks;" R.V., "pinnacles"), or as Gesenius renders it, "notched
battlements, i.e., suns or rays of the sun"= having a radiated
appearance like the sun.
