Secret

SECRET

se'-kret:

In Ezekiel 7:22, English Versions of the Bible has "secret place" for (tsaphan), "hide," "treasure." A correct translation is, "They shall profane my cherished place" (Jerusalem), and there is no reference to the Holy of Holies. The other uses of "secret" in the Revised Version (British and American) are obvious, but Revised Version's corrections of the King James Version in Judges 13:18; 1 Samuel 5:9; Job 15:11 should be noted.
