Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָפָה

(1)  to cover, to veil; as the head, 2 Samuel 15:30; Jeremiah 14:4 the face, Esther 6:12, 7:8. (Syr. ܚܦܐܳ, Arab. خفا id.). Compare חָפַף No. I.

(2) to protect, see Pual.

Piel, to overlay with silver, gold, wood; followed by two accusatives, 2 Chronicles 3:5, 2 Chronicles 3:7, 2 Chronicles 3:8, 2 Chronicles 3:9.

Pual חֻפָּה to be covered, protected, followed by עַל like many other verbs of covering, Isaiah 4:5, עַל־כָּל־ כָּבוֹד חֻפָּה “all glorious things shall be covered over (or protected).” LXX. σκεπασθήσεται. Others take חֻפָּה in this place as a noun in the same sense; “over all the glory (is) a covering (or defence);” which seems more harsh; [perhaps not to every one; Gesenius himself altered his judgment in Thes.].

Niphal, pass. of Piel, Psalms 68:14.

חֻפָּה f. (from the root חָפַף No. I)

(1) properly a covering (see חָפָה Pual); hence a bed with a canopy, a nuptial bed, Himmelbett, Brautbett; compare עֶרֶשׂ. Psalms 19:9; Joel 2:16.

(2) [Huppah], pr.n. m. 1 Chronicles 24:13.
