LANE. A narrow passage between buildings in a town. “Lane” is the translation of Gr. hrumē in Lk 14:21 in distinction from “street,” but this Gr. word is otherwise translated “street” (Mt 6:2; Acts 9:11; 12:10).
LANE Narrow, constricted passageway. In English “lane” evokes the image of a rural path between hedges or fences. The Greek term is used for a city alley (Luke 14:21 KJV, NASB, NRSV; alley, NIV, REB, TEV; “streets and alleys” HCSB). Compare Acts 9:11; 12:10 where the same Greek term is used.
