COUCHING-PLACE

kouch'-ing-plas (marbets; once in English Versions of the Bible, Ezekiel 25:5):

The same Hebrew word, however, which means simply "place of lying down" of animals in repose, is used also in Zec 2:15 where the translation is "a place .... to lie down in." The figure, a common one in Scripture (see besides, Isaiah 17:2; 27:10), suggests desolation.
