CABIN . The Eng. word ‘cabin’ is now chiefly confined to an apartment in a ship, but was formerly used of any small room. It occurs in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] for the cell (which is the word in AVm [Note: Authorized Version margin.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] ) in which Jeremiah was confined ( Jeremiah 37:16 ). Cf. Spenser, FQ I. vi. 23

‘So long in secret cabin there he held

Her captive to his sensual desire.’
