    Definitions for 2 Samuel 7:6

    Tabernacle - A tent, booth or dwelling.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 7:6

    Have walked - Implying the frequent moving of the tabernacle, in the times of the Judges, as opposed to a settled resting in one place. The word tent, refers especially to the outward covering of skins, etc.: the tabernacle denotes the framework of beards and bars. Observe the constant reference to the Exodus and to the details as given in the books of Moses.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Samuel 7:6

    7:6 Tent and tabernacle - These two seem thus to be distinguished, the one may note the curtains and hangings within, the other the frame of boards, and coverings upon it.
