Because tents could be easily put up and taken down, they were the normal dwelling places of ancient peoples who moved around from place to place with their flocks and herds. They were among the earliest kinds of human dwelling places (Genesis 4:20; Genesis 9:21; Genesis 12:8; Genesis 18:1; Genesis 26:25; Song of Song of Solomon 1:8; Isaiah 38:12; Jeremiah 49:28-29).
