COLLEGE . This stands in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ( 2 Kings 22:14 , 2 Chronicles 34:22 ) for the Heb. mishneh , which RV [Note: Revised Version.] correctly renders ‘second quarter,’ a quarter of the city lying to the north ( Zephaniah 1:10 ), and possibly referred to in Nehemiah 11:9 , where our versions have ‘second over the city.’ The idea of a ‘college’ came from the Targ. on 2 Kings 22:14 , ‘house of instruction.’
