Chamber. [E]

( 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 Mark 14:15 ; Luke 22:12 ) The upper chamber was used more particularly for the lodgment of strangers. ( Acts 9:37 ) [E] indicates this entry was also found in Easton's Bible Dictionary
