Easton's Bible Dictionary: M. G. Easton, M.A., D.D.
Dwellings, the name given to the prophetical college established by Samuel near Ramah. It consisted of a cluster of separate dwellings, and hence its name. David took refuge here when he fled from Saul (1 Sam. 19:18,19, 22,23
), and here he passed a few weeks in peace (comp. Ps. 11
). It was probably the common residence of the "sons of the prophets."
