{Genesis 31:34} Now Rachel 7354 had taken 3947 z8804 x853 the images, 8655 and put 7760 z8799 them in the camel's 1581 furniture, 3733 and sat 3427 z8799 upon x5921 them. And Laban 3837 searched 4959 z8762 x853 all x3605 the tent, 168 but found 4672 z8804 [them] not. x3808
had taken:
"Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon camels;" {Gen 31:17} + "And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images that [were] her father's." {Gen 31:19}
furniture:
The word, car, rendered "furniture," properly denotes "a large round pannier," placed one on each side of a camel, for a person, especially women, to ride in. It is a hamper, like a cradle, having a back, head, and sides, like a great chair. Moryson describes them as "two long chairs like cradles, covered with red cloth, to hang on the two sides of the camel." Hanway calls them kedgavays, which "are a kind of covered chairs, which the Persians hang over their camels in the manner of panniers, and are big enough for one person to sit in." Thevenot, who calls then counes, says that they lay over them a cover, which keeps then both from the rain and sun; and Maillet describes them as covered cages, hanging on each side of a camel. The late Editor of Calmet has furnished a correct delineation of these cars, as seen on one side of a camel, copied from Dalton's Prints of Egyptian Figures.
