צָפָה, tsaphah', in Piel, to overlay (as usually rendered), e.g. with stones, 2Ch 3:6; in a similar sense, κοσμέω, to adorn, Re 21:19, which is used of decking with garlands, Mt 23:29; or of a furnished apartment, Mt 12:44; Lu 11:25). In Job 23:16, the term is peculiar, שִׁפרָה, shiphrah', which Gesenius regards as a noun denoting brightness, with which the heavens are clothed; although Fiirst, with many others, pointing שִׁפּרָה, regards it as a Piel form of שָׁפִר, in the sense of arch, referring to the vaulted form of the sky. SEE ASTRONOMY.
