The meaning of Audience in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

o'-di-ens: Translated from the Hebrew 'ozen, "ear." In Genesis 23:10 f. "in the audience of" is equal to "in the presence of," or "while they listened." Compare Exodus 24:7; I Samuel 25:24 (Revised Version (British and American) "in thine ears"); I Chronicles 28:8; Nehemiah 13:1. In the New Testament the expression "to give audience" (Acts 22:22; Acts 13:16, the Revised Version (British and American) "hearken"; Acts 15:12, the Revised Version (British and American) "they hearkened") translated from the Greek akouo "to hear" or derivatives, and means "to listen," "to pay attention." In the King James Version Luke 7:1 (Revised Version, "in the ears of") and the King James Version Luke 20:45 (Revised Version, "in the hearing of") the usage is similar to that of the Old Testament.
