Pavilion


Pavilion, a temporary movable tent or habitation.

1. Sôc, properly an enclosed place, also rendered “tabernacle,” “covert” and “den”; once only “pavilion.” Ps. 27:5. (Among the Egyptians pavilions were built in a similar style to houses, though on a smaller scale, in various parts of the country, and in the foreign districts through which the Egyptian armies passed, for the use of the king.—Wilkinson.) 2. Succáh, usually “tabernacle” and “booth.” 3. Shaphrûr and shaphrı̂r, a word used once only, in Jer. 43:10, to signify glory or splendor, and hence probably to be understood of the splendid covering of the royal throne.
