koz'-wa, ko'-zi (more correctly): This word occurs in 1 Chronicles 26:16, 18 for the Hebrew mecillah; Septuagint pastophorion tes anabaseos. In 2 Chronicles 9:11 the word is translated "terraces" (Septuagint anabaseis). Compare BDB, under the word, where mecilloth, is an error for mic`adhoth (1 Kings 10:12). In all the above passages reference is made to a series or flight of steps leading up into the temple. The word also signifies a prepared, traveled road, as in Numbers 20:19 Judges 20:31, 45; 1 Samuel 6:12 2 Samuel 20:12; 2 Kings 18:17 (Isaiah 36:2); Isaiah 7:3; Isaiah 11:16; Isaiah 19:23; Isaiah 33:8; Isaiah 40:3; 49:11 Jeremiah 31:21.

Figurative: In Isaiah 59:7 the word (mecillah) occurs in a figurative sense, so also in Judges 5:20 Proverbs 16:17.
