PAVILION (pa-vĭl'yŭn, Heb. sōkh in Ps.27.5, sukkâh in Ps.31.20, booth, tent). Used in KJV to refer to a covered place in which a person may be kept hidden. NIV usually has “dwelling.” It is used chiefly to symbolize God’s favor and protection provided for his children (Ps.18.11). It grows out of the fact that no one has access to the eastern king’s inner court or pavilion except those to whom he gives permission.
