From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     a strong fenced enclosure for the protection of the sheep

     In John 10:16 the Authorized Version renders by "fold" two
     distinct Greek words, aule and poimne, the latter of which
     properly means a "flock," and is so rendered in the Revised
     Version. (See also Matt. 26:31; Luke 2:8; 1 Cor. 9:7.) (See FOLD.)
