Quick Reference

A shelter (so REB) used by farmers when watching over their crops (Isa. 1: 8). Because they were only temporary structures, they were reminiscent of Israel's journeying through the wilderness, so at the feast of Tabernacles (Booths), when the harvest was gathered, every Israelite was required to live in a temporary booth (Lev. 23: 42).
