Doorkeeper


"This word is used in Ps. 84:10 (R.V. marg., "stand at the" "threshold of," etc.), but there it signifies properly "sitting" "at the threshold in the house of God." The psalmist means that" he would rather stand at the door of God's house and merely look "in, than dwell in houses where iniquity prevailed." "Persons were appointed to keep the street door leading into the "interior of the house (John 18:16, 17; Acts 12:13). Sometimes" females held this post.
