Verse 16

I have decked my bed - ערשי arsi , "my couch or sofa;" distinguished from משכבי mishcabi , "my bed," Proverbs 7:17 , the place to sleep on, as the other was the place to recline on at meals. The tapestry, מרבדים marbaddim , mentioned here seems to refer to the covering of the sofa; exquisitely woven and figured cloth. אטון חטבות chatuboth etun , the Targum translates painted carpets, such as were manufactured in Egypt; some kind of embroidered or embossed stuff is apparently meant.
