The meaning of Place in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
plas: Normally for maqom, Old Testament, and topos, New Testament, but in the King James Version "place" represents a great number of Hebrew and Greek words, often used with no difference in force (e.g. II Chronicles 35:10, II Chronicles 35:15). the Revised Version (British and American) has made few changes, but occasionally has attempted to specialize the meaning (Genesis 40:13; Job 37:8; Acts 8:32; James 3:11, etc.).
