HOUSE OF GOD - In Gen 28:17,22 = BETHEL (which see). In Jgs, 1 and 2 Chronicles, Ezr, Neh, Ps, etc. (beth ha-'elohim), a designation of the sanctuary = "house of Yahweh" (of the tabernacle, Jdg 18:31; 20:18,26 the King James Version; of the temple, 1 Ch 9:11; 24:5 the King James Version; 2 Ch 5:14; Ps 42:4; Isa 2:3, etc.; of the 2nd temple, Ezr 5:8,15; Neh 6:10; 13:11; compare Mt 12:4). Spiritually, in the New Testament, the "house of God" (oikos theou) is the church or community of believers (1 Tim 3:15; Heb 10:21; 1 Pet 4:17; compare 1 Cor 3:9,16,17; 1 Pet 2:5).
