harlot's house Though the word {zonah} generally denotes a prostitute, yet many very learned men are of opinion that it should be here rendered an {innkeeper} or {hostess}, from {zoon} to furnish or provide food. In this sense it was understood by the Targumist, who renders it, {ittetha pundekeetha, `a woman, a tavern-keeper}, and so Chrysostome, in his second sermon on Repentance, calls her (). The Greek () by which the LXX. render it, and which is adopted by the Apostles, is derived from () to sell, and is also supposed to denote a tavern keeper. Among the ancients, women generally kept houses of entertainment. Herodotus says, `Among the Egyptians, the women carry on all commercial concerns, and keep taverns, while the men continue at home and weave.' The same custom prevailed among the Greeks.
