1. Ulam, or ulâm. 1 Chron. 28:11. 2. Misderôn ulam, Judges 3:23, strictly a vestibule, was probably a sort of veranda chamber in the works of Solomon, open in front and at the sides, but capable of being enclosed with awnings or curtains. The porch, Matt. 26:71, may have been the passage from the street into the first court of the house, in which, in eastern houses, is the mastábah or stone bench, for the porter or persons waiting, and where also the master of the house often receives visitors and transacts business.
