Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("a fixed dwelling"); as in Genesis 33:17, "Jacob built him an house," marking his settlement after wanderings (compare 2 Samuel 7:2-6). Then "any dwelling", as "a tent". Then "a family". Also "a temple". "The garden house," Beth-haggan (2 Kings 9:27), by way of which Ahaziah fled; now Jenin, formerly EN-GANNIN, on the way from Samaria northward, overlooking the great plain.
