Greek - mansion
MANSION

Place to dwell or abide, separate living quarters.

Before going away, Jesus promised to make provision of a dwelling place for His disciples (John 14:2). The Greek noun means “abiding places.” KJV translated this as “mansions,” which meant a dwelling place but has come to represent an elaborate, expensive house in English. Thus modern translations read, “dwelling places” or “rooms.” Christian theology holds that Christ's followers will abide with Him eternally in heavenly dwelling places.
