Tent: 1. Heb. 'ohel (Genesis 9:21,27) This word is used also of a. a dwelling or habitation (1 Kings 8:66; Isaiah 16:5; Jeremiah 4:20) b. the temple (Ezekiel 41:1) c. When used of the tabernacle, as in (1 Kings 1:39) it denotes the covering of goat's hair which was placed over the mishcan.

2. Heb. mishcan (The Song of Solomon 1:8) used also of a. a dwelling (Job 18:21; Psalms 87:2) b. the grave (Isaiah 22:16) comp. (Isaiah 14:18) c. the temple (Psalms 46:4; 84:2; 132:5) d. the tabernacle (Exodus 25:9; 26:1; 40:9; Numbers 1:50,53; 10:11) e. When distinguished from 'ohel, it denotes the twelve interior curtains which lay upon the framework of the tabernacle (q.v.).

3. Heb. kubbah (Numbers 25:8) a dome-like tent devoted to the impure worship of Baal-peor.

4. Heb. succah (2 Samuel 11:11) a tent or booth made of green boughs or branches (see) (Genesis 33:17; Leviticus 23:34,42; Psalms 18:11; Jonah 4:5; Isaiah 4:6)

(Nehemiah 8:15-17) (where the word is variously rendered). a. Jubal was "the father of such as dwell in tents" (Genesis 4:20) b. The patriarchs were "dwellers in tents" (Genesis 9:21,27; 12:8)

(Genesis 13:12; 26:17) c. during their wilderness wanderings all Israel dwelt in tents

(Exodus 16:16; Deuteronomy 33:18; Joshua 7:24)

Tents have always occupied a prominent place in Eastern life (1 Samuel 17:54; 2 Kings 7:7; Psalms 120:5; The Song of Solomon 1:5) Paul the apostle's occupation was that of a tent-maker (Acts 18:3) i.e., perhaps a maker of tent cloth.
