Thayer's Expanded Definition

σκηνή, σκηνῆς, (from the root, ska 'to cover' etc.; cf. σκιά, σκότος, etc.; Latincasa, cassis, castrum; English shade, etc.; Curtius, § 112; Vanicek, p. 1054f), from (Aeschylus), Sophocles and Thucydides down; the Sept. chiefly for אֹהֶל, often also for מִשְׁכָּן, also for סֻכָּה; a tent, tabernacle (made of green boughs, or skins, or other materials): Matthew 17:4; Mark 9:5; Luke 9:33; Hebrews 11:9; αἱ αἰώνιοι σκηναί (see αἰώνιος, 3), Luke 16:9 (et dabo iis tabernacula aeterna quae praeparaveram illis, 4 (5) Esdr. ); of that well known movable temple of God after the pattern of which the temple at Jerusalem was subsequently built (cf. B. D., under the word ): Hebrews 8:5; Hebrews 9:1 Rec.st, 21; with τοῦ μαρτυρίου added (see μαρτύριον, c. at the end), Acts 7:44; the temple is called σκηνή in Hebrews 13:10; σκηνή πρώτη, the front part of the tabernacle (and afterward of the temple), the Holy place, Hebrews 9:2, 6, 8; of the Holy of holies, Hebrews 9:3; the name is transferred to heaven, as the true dwelling-place of God and the prototype of the earthly 'tabernacle' or sanctuary, Hebrews 9:11; Revelation 13:6; hence, σκηνή ἀληθινή, heaven, Hebrews 8:2; with a reference to this use of the word, it is declared that when the kingdom of God is perfectly established σκηνή τοῦ Θεοῦ will be μετά τῶν (after the analogy of σκηνουν μετά τίνος), Revelation 21:3; ναός τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου (see μαρτύριον, c. at the end), the heavenly temple, in which was the tabernacle of the covenant, i. e. the inmost sanctuary oradytum, Revelation 15:5. σκηνή τοῦ Μολόχ, the tabernacle i. e. portable shrine of Moloch, Acts 7:43 (for the Orientals on their journeys and military expeditions used to carry with them their deities, together with shrines for them; hence, ἱερά σκηνή of the Carthaginians in Diodorus 20, 65, where see Wesseling (but cf. סִכּוּת in Mühlau and Volck's Gesenius, or the recent commentaries on Amos 5:26)). σκηνή Δαυίδ (from Amos 9:11 for סֻכָּה), the hut (tabernacle) of David, seems to be employed, in contempt, of his house, i. e. family reduced to decay and obscurity, Acts 15:16 (otherwise דָּוִד אֹהֶל in Isaiah 16:5).
