אֹהֶל Strong’s #168 ohel

And he went on his journeys from the South even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth-el and Ai.

Genesis 13:3



Every nomadic culture around the globe constructs tents based on two basic requirements; environment and available material. The Plains Indians of North America lived in cold environments with deer skins available in large quantity. Their shelter of choice was the tee-pee. The Hebrews constructed tents out of spun goat’s hair from their herds. Because of the wind and blowing sand, they constructed low profile tents. The sides could be rolled up to allow for air circulation in the heat of the day, and the black hair absorbed the heat of the day to keep it warmer during the night.
