(ssheh ki' nah) Transliteration of Hebrew word not found in the Bible but used in many of the Jewish writings to speak of God's presence. The term means “that which dwells,” and is implied through out the Bible whenever it refers to God's nearness either in a person, object, or His glory. It is often used in combination with glory to speak of the presence of God's shekinah glory. See Glory .
