Several translations take this view, e.g., NRSVits back,” NEB/REBits headrest,” and NJPS: “its back.” (2) Koehler-Baumgartner suggestbase, foundation of a saddle, litter” (KBL 905). Several translations follow this approach, e.g., KJVthe bottom,” NASBits base” (margin: “its support,” and NIVits base.” (3) G. Gerleman suggests the meaningcover,” as proposed by Peshitta. The first two approaches are more likely than the third. Thus, it probably refers either to (1) the back of the sedan-chair of the palanquin or (2) the foundation/base of the saddle/litter upon which the palanquin rested (<i>HALOTi> 1276 s.v. <span class="hebrew">רפדspan>).
