(חָנוּת, chanuth'; Sept. merely Graecizes, χερέθ ), properly a vault or cell (so the margin) within the dungeon, and under ground, for the separate confinement of prisoners (Jeremiah 37:16).

The idea conveyed in either case is that the prophet suffered the most severe and loathsome imprisonment. (See PRISON).
