Bochartus vero Gap desc: Hebrew ad verbum significare ait, filiarum, vel puellarum tabernacula. Itaque cum Babylonii leguntur fecisse Succoth-benoth, eos struxisse intelligit sacellum Dearum, quae benoth, i. e. Puellae, dicebantur: uti Graecos Proserpinam κόρην, i. e. Puellam, appellâsle, notum. Sic Amos c. 5. v. 26. tabernaculum Regis vestri, i. e. idoli vestri sacellum. Vide eum Hierozaoici Parte poster. l. 1. c. 16. Gerh. Ioh. Vossius et Io. Seldenus Mylittam seu Venerem Assyriam hôc nomine intelligentes, puellas corollis redimitas, ad Templum eius, hospites opperiti solitas, et post Deam sollenni formulâ invocatam, iniectamque feminae, quae maxime arrideret, sinui quantulamcumque pecuniam, in proximum tabernaculum, abduci consuevisse, neque ulli earum a Fano recedere licuisse, nisi his ritibus idolo initiata fuisset, referunt, de Orig. Idolol. l. 2. c. 22. et de Diis Syris Synt. 2. c. 7. Vide et supra.
