Chamber. Genesis 43:30; 2 Samuel 18:33; Psalms 19:5; Daniel 6:10. The word chamber, in these passages, has much the same significance as with us, meaning the private rooms of the house - the guest chamber, as with us, meaning a room set apart for the accommodation of the visiting friend. Mark 14:14-15; Luke 22:12. The upper chamber was used, more particularly, for the lodgment of strangers. Acts 9:37.
