Chambering

CHAMBERING. Repeated or habitual acts of illicit intercourse (Rom.13.13), rendered by NIV as “sexual immorality.”

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

cham’-ber-ing: Illicit intercourse; the rendering in English Versions of the Bible since Tyndale of koitias (literally "beds," Ro 13:13). The Greek usage is paralleled in classic authors and the Septuagint; like the English participle, it denotes repeated or habitual acts. The word is not recorded elsewhere in English literature as verb or participle in this sense; in Othello, iii, 3, a chamberer is an intriguer, male wanton, in Byron, Werner, IV, 1, 404, a gallant or carpet knight, and in Chaucer, Clerk’s Tale, 766, a concubine.
