Cabins

arched vaults or recesses off a passage or room; cells for the closer confinement of prisoners

This old English word appears only in the King James Version in Jeremiah 37:16. The New Revised Standard Version and the New King James Version say “cells”. The International Version says “vaulted cells.”
