Deck


2. “Deck” also refers to the deck of a ship, providing a floor for the space above and a roof for the space underneath. In Genesis 6:16, after “lower, second, and third,” RSV supplies “decks,” KJV “stories.” Thus, Noah’s ark had three decks. In Ezekiel 27:6 קֶ֫רֶשׁ, H7983, board(s) or plank(s) (of a deck), is rendered “deck” in RSV (KJV “benches”). The reference is to Tyre appropriately under the figure of a ship.
