UPPER CHAMBER; UPPER ROOM [ISBE]

UPPER CHAMBER; UPPER ROOM - up'-er cham'-ber, (`aliyah (2 Ki 1:2), etc.; anogeon (Mk 14:15; Lk 22:12), huperoon (Acts 1:13; 9:37,39; 20:8)): In Jdg 3:20 the English Revised Version renders "summer parlor" and in the margin "Hebrew: `Upper chamber of cooling.'" This was probably a roof-chamber. The "upper chamber" of Ahaziah in 2 Ki 1:2 was evidently in the 2nd story of the building. On the "upper chambers" of the temple (1 Ch 28:11; 2 Ch 3:9), see TEMPLE. The "large upper room" which was the scene of the Last Supper, with that in Acts 1:13, was also plainly an upper-story chamber. That in Acts 20:8 was in the 3rd story (at Miletus, a Greek city).

See also HOUSE.
