feast of tabernacles

Deuteronomy 16:13

16:13 feast of tabernacles. Two Hebrew words are used to refer to the tabernacle constructed in the wilderness. One (mishkan) refers mainly to its identity as God’s “habitation” (e.g., Exodus 25:9) when He came down to meet with His people. The other (ohel) referred to the actual structure, which was that of a “tent” (e.g., Exodus 26:9). The word used for the “feast of tabernacles,” however, was succoth, meaning “booths.”
