Palanquin

Additional Links

pal - an - kēn ´: In Song of Solomon 3:9 occurs אפּריון , 'appiryōn , a word that has no Semitic cognates and is of dubious meaning. In form, however, it resembles the Sanskrit paryañka , and still more closely the Greek φορεῖον , phoreı́on , both of which mean "litter bed." Hence, the Revised Version (British and American) "palanquin" (ultimately derived from paryañka ). The margin "car of state" and the King James Version "chariot" are mere guesses.
