Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

John 10:23

Was walking (periepatei).
Imperfect active of peripatew, to walk around, picturesque imperfect.

In Solomon's porch (en thi stoai tou Solomwnov).
A covered colonnade or portico in which people could walk in all weather. See Acts 3:11; 5:12 for this porch. This particular part of Solomon's temple was left uninjured by the Babylonians and survived apparently till the destruction of the temple by Titus A.D. 70 (Josephus, Ant. XX. 9,7). When John wrote, it was, of course, gone.
