chām´bẽr -ing : Illicit intercourse; the rendering in English Versions of the Bible since Tyndale of κοίταις , koı́tais (literally "beds," Romans 13:13 ). The Greek usage is paralleled in classic authors and the Septuagint; like the English participle, it denotes repeated or habitual acts. The word is not recorded elsewhere in English literature as verb or participle in this sense; in Othello , iii, 3, a chamberer is an intriguer, male wanton, in Byron, Werner , IV, 1, 404, a gallant or carpet knight, and in Chaucer, Clerk's Tale , 766, a concubine.
