BIBLE DICTIONARY
Judgment hall
So KJV sometimes translates the Latin word Praetorium. In John 18: 28, 33; John 19: 9, it denotes Pilate’s official residence in Jerusalem; in Acts 23: 35 it denotes a part of the buildings erected by Herod in Caesarea. In Matt. 27: 27 praetorium is translated “common hall” or “governor’s house,” i.e., Pilate’s house; in Philip. 1: 13 it is translated “palace” or “Caesar’s court,” i.e., the officers of the court before which Paul was tried.
