Chamber: "on the wall," which the Shunammite prepared for the prophet Elisha
(2 Kings 4:10) was an upper chamber over the porch through the hall toward
the street. This was the "guest chamber" where entertainments were
(Mark 14:14) There were also "chambers within chambers"
(1 Kings 22:25; 2 Kings 9:2) To enter into a chamber is used metaphorically of
prayer and communion with God
(Isaiah 26:20) The "chambers of the south"
(Job 9:9) are probably the constelations of the southern hemisphere.
The "chambers of imagery", i.e., chambers painted with images, as
used by Ezekiel
(Ezekiel 8:12) is an expression denoting the vision the
prophet had of the abominations practised by the Jews in Jerusalem.
