  36. Among the leading characteristics of the nomad races, those two have always been numbered whose origin has been ascribed to Jabal the son of Lameth, ( Genesis 4:20 ) viz., to be tent-dwellers and keepers of cattle. The same may be said of the forefathers of the Hebrew race; nor was it until the return into Canaan from Egypt that the Hebrews became inhabitants of cities. An Arab tent is called beit , "house;" its covering consists of stuff, about three quarters of a yard broad, made of black goats-hair, ( Solomon 1:5 ) laid parallel with the tents length. This is sufficient to resist the heaviest rain. The tent-poles or columns are usually nine in number, placed in three groups; but many tents have only one pole, others two or three. The ropes which hold the tent in its place are fastened, not to the tent-cover itself, but to loops consisting of a leathern thong tied to the ends of a stick, round which is twisted a piece of old cloth, which is itself sewed to the tent-cover. The ends of the tent-ropes are fastened to short sticks or pins, which are driven into the ground with a mallet. ( Judges 4:21 ) Round the back and sides of the tent runs a piece of stuff removable at pleasure to admit air. The tent is divided into two apartments, separated by a carpet partition drawn across the middle of the tent and fastened to the three middle posts. When the pasture near an encampment is exhausted, the tents are taken down, packed on camels and removed. ( Genesis 26:17 Genesis 26:22 Genesis 26:25 ; Isaiah 38:12 ) In choosing places for encampment, Arabs prefer the neighborhood of trees, for the sake of the shade and coolness which they afford. ( Genesis 18:4 Genesis 18:8 ) biblestudytools.com
  37. Heb. 'ohel ( Genesis 9:21 Genesis 9:27 ). This word is used also of a dwelling or habitation ( 1 Kings 8:66 ; Isaiah 16:5 ; Jeremiah 4:20 ), and of the temple ( Ezekiel 41:1 ). 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. biblestudytools.com
  38. Heb. mishcan (Cant 1:8 ), used also of a dwelling ( Job 18:21 ; Psalms 87:2 ), the grave ( Isaiah 22:16 ; comp 14:18 ), the temple ( Psalms 46:4 ; 84:2 ; 132:5 ), and of the tabernacle ( Exodus 25:9 ; 26:1 ; 40:9 ; Numbers 1:50 Numbers 1:53 ; 10:11 ). When distinguished from 'ohel, it denotes the twelve interior curtains which lay upon the framework of the tabernacle (q.v.). biblestudytools.com
  39. Heb. kubbah ( Numbers 25:8 ), a dome-like tent devoted to the impure worship of Baal-peor. biblestudytools.com
  40. Heb. succah ( 2 Samuel 11:11 ), a tent or booth made of green boughs or branches (see Genesis 33:17 ; Leviticus 23:34 Leviticus 23:42 ; Psalms 18:11 ; Jonah 4:5 ; Isaiah 4:6 ; Nehemiah 8:15-17 , where the word is variously rendered). Jubal was "the father of such as dwell in tents" ( Genesis 4:20 ). The patriarchs were "dwellers in tents" ( Genesis 9:21 Genesis 9:27 ; 12:8 ; 13:12 ; 26:17 ); and 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 ; Cant 1:5 ). Paul the apostle's occupation was that of a tent-maker ( Acts 18:3 ); i.e., perhaps a maker of tent cloth. These dictionary topics are fromM.G.
