hab - i - tā´shun : Properly a place of sojourn or dwelling. The term in the King James Version representing some 16 Hebrew words ( mōshābh , mā‛ōn , mishkān , nāweh , etc.), and 5 Greek words, is variously changed in certain passages in the Revised Version (British and American), as Genesis 49:5 , "swords"; Leviticus 13:46 "dwelling"; Job 5:24; Jeremiah 25:30 , Jeremiah 25:37 , "fold"; Psalm 89:14; Psalm 97:2 , etc., "foundation"; Psalm 132:5 , "tabernacle"; Luke 16:9 , "tabernacles," etc. Conversely, "habitation" appears in the Revised Version (British and American) for the King James Version "dwelling place" in 2 Chronicles 30:27; Psalm 79:7 , "house"; Psalm 83:12; 2 Corinthians 5:2 , "tabernacle," Acts 7:46 , etc. See HOUSE .
