pāv´ment : In the Old Testament, with the exception of 2 Kings 16:17 , the Hebrew word is רצפּה , ricpāh (2 Chronicles 7:3 ; Esther 1:6 ; Ezekiel 40:17 , etc.); in Sirach 20:18 and Bel and the Dragon verse 19 the word is ἔδαφος , édaphos ; in John 19:13 , the name "The Pavement" (λιθόστρωτος , lithóstrōtos , "paved with stone") is given to the place outside the Pretorium on which Pilate sat to give judgment upon Jesus. Its Hebrew (Aramaic) equivalent is declared to be GABBATHA (which see). The identification of the place is uncertain.
