Pavilion. (A temporary movable tent or habitation.

1. Hebrew, Soc, properly an enclosed place, also rendered "tabernacle," "covert," and "den;" once only "pavilion." Psalms 27:5. (Among the Egyptians, pavilions were built in a similar style to houses, though on a smaller scale, in various parts of the country, and in the foreign districts through which the Egyptian armies passed, for the use of the king - Wilkinson).

2. Hebrew, Succah, usually "tabernacle," and "booth."

3. Hebrew, Shaphrur and shaphrir, a word used once only, in Jeremiah 49:10, to signify glory or splendor, and hence, probably to be understood of the splendid covering of the royal throne.
