Tents were in primitive times the common dwellings of men. Houses were afterwards built, the walls of which were frequently of mud (Job 24:16; Matthew 6:19,20) or of sun-dried bricks.

God "dwells in light" (1 Timothy 6:16; 1 John 1:7), in heaven (Psalms 123:1), in his church (Psalms 9:11; 1 John 4:12). Christ dwelt on earth in the days of his humiliation (John 1:14). He now dwells in the hearts of his people (Ephesians 3:17-19). The Holy Spirit dwells in believers (1 Corinthians 3:16; 2Tim 1:14). We are exhorted to "let the word of God dwell in us richly" (Colossians 3:16; Psalms 119:11).

Dwell deep occurs only in Jeremiah 49:8, and refers to the custom of seeking refuge from impending danger, in retiring to the recesses of rocks and caverns, or to remote places in the desert.
