      n : a pen for sheep [syn: fold, sheep pen, sheepcote]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a strong fenced enclosure for the protection of the sheep
    gathered within it (Num. 32:24; 1 Chr. 17:7; Ps. 50:9; 78:70).
    In John 10:16 the Authorized Version renders by "fold" two
    distinct Greek words, aule and poimne, the latter of which
    properly means a "flock," and is so rendered in the Revised
    Version. (See also Matt. 26:31; Luke 2:8; 1 Cor. 9:7.) (See FOLD.)
