1037) nb (בנ BN) AC: Build CO: Tent panel AB: Intelligence: The pictograph b is a picture of the tent. The n is a picture of a sprouting seed and represents continuity as the seed continues the next generation. The combined meaning of these letters mean “the continuing of the house”. The tent was constructed of woven goat hair. Over time the sun bleaches and weakens the goat hair necessitating their continual replacement. Each year the women make a new panel, approximately3feet wide and the length of the tent. The old panel is removed (being recycled into a wall or floor) and the new strip is added to the tent. Since the tent is only replaced one small piece at a time the tent essentially lasts forever. (eng: beam - a component of construction with an exchange for the m and n; between - with the t added)

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בַּיִן const. בֵּין pr. i.q. Arab. بَيْنُ interval, space between (see Dual), only in const. and followed by suffixes בֵּינִי, בֵּינְךָ, בֵּינוֹ, also pl. בֵּינָיו, בֵּינֵינוּ, בֵּינֵיכֶם and בֵּינוֹתֵינוּ, בֵּינוֹתָם. It becomes a preposition

(1) between, Arab. بَيْنَ בֵּין אַחִים “between brothers,” Proverbs 6:19 בֵּין שִׂיחִים “between bushes,” Job 30:7 בֵּין עֵינַיִם “between the eyes,” for in the forehead (see עַיִן ). [“So בֵּין אוּלַי ‘between the Ulai,’ i.e. among its windings and branches, Daniel 8:16. After verbs of motion, i.q. אֶל בֵּין, Judges 5:27.”] When doubled, inter … inter, between … between, there is בֵּיןוּבֵין, Genesis 26:28; Exodus 11:7; Joshua 22:25, etc.; more rarely בֵּיןלְ (pr. an interval … unto), Genesis 1:6; Leviticus 20:25; Deuteronomy 17:8 בֵּיןלְבֵין Isaiah 59:2 בֵּןוּלְ Joel 2:17. When followed by words of seeing, understanding, teaching, they signify to see, to understand, to teach, the difference between; Malachi 3:18, וּרְאִיתֶם בֵּין צַּדִּיק לְרָשָׁע “and ye shall see the difference between the righteous and the wicked,” comp. יָדַע בֵּיןלְ 2 Samuel 19:36; Jonah 4:11 הֵבִין בֵּיןלְ 1 Kings 3:9 חוֹרָה בֵּיןלְ Ezekiel 44:23.

(2) intra, within, Job 24:11, בֵּין שׁוּרֹתָם “within their walls;” Proverbs 26:13, בֵּין הָֽרְחֹבוֹת “within the streets,” i.q. in the streets, comp. Zechariah 13:6. Used of time, Nehemiah 5:18, “within ten days” (comp. Arab. بينذك). Sometimes

(3) בֵּיןלְ and בֵּיןוּבֵין are disjunctively used for sive … sive, whether … or; 2 Chronicles 14:10, אֵין עִמְּךָ לַעְוֹר בֵּין רַב לְאֵין כֹּחַ “it is the same to thee to help, whether the strong, or the weak,” prop. with thee, O God, in aiding there is no difference between the strong and the weak. The origin of this phraseology may be seen also from Leviticus 27:12, “and the priest shall value it (the beast), בֵּין טוֹב וּבֵין רַע whether it be good or bad,” for, in distinguishing between good and bad, LXX. εἴτε καλή, εἴτε σαπρά. 2 Samuel 19:36. (So in the Rabbinic ביןבין sive … sive, tam … quam.)

It is compounded with other prepositions

(a) אֶל־בֵּין, inter, with acc. into between, amongst, Ezekiel 31:10, 14 Ezekiel 31:14, and אֶל־בֵּינוֹת 10:2.

(b) עַל־בֵּין unto between, Ezekiel 19:11.

(c) מִבֵּין from between, zwifchen (etwas) weg, zwifchen hervor, French d’entre; Zechariah 6:1, “two chariots going forth מִבֵּין שְׁנֵי הֶהָרִים from between the mountains;” Psalms 104:12, “they utter a voice מִבֵּין עֳפָאִים from amongst the branches;” Jeremiah 48:45, מִבֵּין סִיחוֹן, ellipt. for “out of the midst of the kingdom of Sihon.” מִבֵּין רַגְלַיִם used euphemistically for from the womb of a mother, Deuteronomy 28:57, “the afterbirth הַיּוֹצֵת מִבֵּין רַגְלֶיהָ which comes forth from her womb” (comp. Il. xix. 110, ὄς κεν ἐπʼ ἤματι τῷδε πέσῃ μετὰ ποσσὶ γυναικός), and figuratively for of his seed, race, posterity, Genesis 49:10, “the sceptre.… shall not depart מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו from his progeny.” It is equivalent to מִמֵּעָיו, מִפְּרִי בִמְנוֹ, מִזַּרְעוֹ. LXX. ἐκ τῶν μηρῶν αὐτοῦ (compare Genesis 46:26). Where two things are mentioned from between which any thing comes forth, there is found מִבֵּיןמִבֵּין, 2 Kings 16:14; Ezekiel 47:18.

(d) מִבֵּינוֹת לְ between, within, i.q. בֵּינוֹת Ezekiel 10:2, 6:7.-בְּבֵין Isaiah 44:4, is for בְּבֵין; see בְּ B, 8.

Dual בֵּנַיִם the interval between two armies, τὰ μεταίχμια, Eurip. Phœn. 1285; whence אִישׁ הַבֵּנַיִם 1 Samuel 17:4, 23, “one who comes between,” μεσίτης, used of Goliath as ready to decide the contest by single combat.
