  1. the construction of a tabernacle or tabernacles
  2. the feast of tabernacles; this festival was observed by the Jews yearly for seven days, beginning with the 15th of the month Tisri (approx. our Oct.) partly to perpetuate the memory of the time when their ancestors after leaving Egypt dwelt in tents on their way through the Arabian desert, and partly as a season of festivity and joy on the completion of the harvest and the vintage (the festival of ingatherings) In celebrating the festival the Jews were accustomed to construct booths of the leafy branches of trees, -- either on the roofs or in the courts of their dwellings, or in the streets and squares, and to adorn them with flowers and fruits of all kinds -- under which, throughout the period of the festival, they feasted and gave themselves up to rejoicing.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

σκηνοπηγία, σκηνοπηγίας, (σκηνή and πήγνυμι, cf. Hebrews 8:2);

1. the construction of a tabernacle or tabernacles: τῆς χελιδονος, the skill of the swallow in building its nest, Aristotle, h. a. 9, 7 (p. 612{b}, 22).

2. the feast of tabernacles: John 7:2. This festival was observed by the Jews yearly for seven days, beginning with the 15th of the month Tisri (i. e. approximately, Oct.; cf. BB. DD., under the word ), partly to perpetuate the memory of the time when their ancestors after leaving Egypt dwelt in tents on their way through the Arabian desert (Leviticus 23:43), partly as a season of festivity and joy on the completion of the harvest and the vintage (Deuteronomy 16:13) ('the feast of ingathering' (see below)). In celebrating the festival the Jews were accustomed to construct booths of the leafy branches of trees — either on the roofs or in the courts of their dwellings, or in the streets and squares (Nehemiah 8:15, 16), and to adorn them with flowers and fruits of all kinds (Leviticus 23:40) — under which, throughout the period of the festival, they feasted and gave themselves up to rejoicing. This feast is called הַסֻּכּות חַג () ἑορτή (τῆς) σκηνοπηγίας, Deuteronomy 16:16; Deuteronomy 31:10; Zechariah 14:16, 18; 1 Esdr. 5:50 (51); 1 Macc. 10:21; Josephus, Antiquities 4, 8, 12; () ἑορτή (τῶν) σκηνῶν, Leviticus 23:34; Deuteronomy 16:13; (2 Chronicles 8:13; Ezra 3:4); 2 Macc. 10:6; σκηναί, Philo de septenar. § 24; σκηνοπηγία, 2 Macc. 1:9, 18; once (twice) (Exodus 23:16; (Exodus 34:22)) הַאָסִיף חַג, i. e. 'the feast of ingathering' namely, of fruits. (Cf. BB. DD. (especially Ginsburg in Alex.'s Kitto); Edersheim, The Temple, chapter xiv.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This proper name (1 Corinthians 1:16; 1 Corinthians 16:15; 1 Corinthians 16:17) is either a shortened form of Στεφανήφορος, or a development of Στέφανος (cf. Blass Gr. p. 71). See Lake Earlier Epistles, p. 328, on Στεφανᾶς as the ἀπαρχὴ τῆς Ἀχαίας.
