Cabin (חָנוּת, chanuth'; Sept. merely Graecizes, ἡ χερέθ), properly a vault or cell (so the margin) within the dungeon, and under ground, for the separate confinement of prisoners (Jer 37:16). Others (Scheid, in the Diss. Lugdun. p. 988) understand it to mean a curved post, i.e. the stocks (comlp. Jer 20:2-3; Jer 29:26). The idea conveyed in either case is that the prophet suffered the most severe and loathsome imprisonment. SEE PRISON.
