(מוּסִךְ השִּׁבָּת, musak hash-shabbath; Sept. θεμέλιος τῆς καθέδρας τῶν σαββάτων ; Vulg. Musach sabbati, 2 Kings 16:18), is understood to mean a canopy under which Ahaz used to stand, at the entrance of the porch of the Temple, when he attended the service; but which he removed when he became an idolater, to show his contempt, and his intention of not resorting thither any more. (See COURT). So we see in 2 Chronicles 28:24 that "he shut up the doors of the house of God" that none might enter to worship. (See AHAZ).
