Shekhinah is derived from the Hebrew verb שכן shakan "to settle down, abide, dwell, tabernacle, reside," as in the Book of Exodus:
"And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God." –Exodus 29:45
ושכנתי בתוך בני ישראל והייתי להם לאלהים׃ ספר שמות 29:45
Christian theologians have often connected the concept of Shekhinah to the Greek term "Parousia", also a feminine word (literally: "presence") which is used in the New Testament in a similar way for "Divine Presence".
