Psalm 27:5, sok; Psalm 18:11; Psalm 31:20, a spiritual pavilion, namely, Jehovah's favor and protection; explained in the parallel, "the secret of Thy presence"; none have access to an eastern king's pavilion in the "inner court" save those he admits (Esther 4:11). Thus to be "kept secretly" in Jehovah's pavilion is to be in His most intimate confidence, and so perfectly secure, to be of His "hidden ones" (Psalm 83:3; 1 Kings 20:16; 2 Samuel 22:12). Sukkah, sukkot. In Jeremiah 43:10 shaphrur, "Nebuchadnezzar shall spread his royal pavilion (literally, rich ornamental tapestry hanging from above round the throne) over these stones."
