1 Kings 22:10

(NIV1984) 1 Kings 22:10 – “Dressed in their royal robes, the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah were sitting in their thrones at the threshing floor by the entrance of the gate of Samaria, with all the prophets prophesying before them.”

Once again – Ahab’s name is not mentioned.  It’s interesting to note, however, that Jehoshaphat’s is, along with his title as “king of Judah”.

This verse gives us an idea of what all this looks like.  The kings are in their royal robes and sitting in their thrones – Jehoshaphat even had his with him! – but they weren’t in the palace.  They were “at the threshing floor by the entrance of the gate of Samaria”.  Why were they there?  Why that location?  I know there must be some importance to the threshing floor, but what is it?
