(ssak' kewth) NRSV transliteration of Assyrian divine name applied to god Ninurta (or Ninib), apparently an Assyrian name for Saturn or another astral deity. Some translators take the name as a common noun meaning, “shrine” (REB, NIV), “tabernacle” (KJV), since the Hebrew term resembles the word for “tent.” Amos condemned Israel for such false worship (Amos 5:26 ). See Succoth-benoth.
