pa - vil´yun : A covered place, booth, tent, in which a person may be kept hid or secret ( סך , ṣōkh , Psalm 27:5 ; סכּה , ṣukkāh - the usual term - Psalm 31:20 ), or otherwise be withdrawn from view. The term is used with reference to God (2 Samuel 22:12 ; Psalm 18:11 ); to kings drinking in privacy (1 Kings 20:12 , 1 Kings 20:16 ); the Revised Version (British and American) gives "pavilion" for the King James Version "tabernacle" in Job 36:29 ; Isaiah 4:6 ; while in Numbers 25:8 it substitutes this word, with the margin "alcove," for the King James Version "tent" ( ḳubbāh ), and Jeremiah 43:10 , for "royal pavilion" (shaphrūr ), reads in the margin "glittering pavilion."
