there shall be a tabernacle [cukkah] for a shadow [tsel] in the
daytime [yowmam] from the heat, [choreb] and for a place of refuge, [machaceh] and for a covert [mictowr]
from storm [zerem] and from rain. [matar] KJV-Interlinear
6 And there
will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection
from the storm and the rain. NASB
Tabernacle, 'cukkah,' refers to a tent, shelter, booth.
Covert, 'mictowr,' refers to a refuge, shelter, place to conceal oneself, a place of safety.
The imagery here continues to express the safety and comfort that God will provide. We know that the Millennium will have perfect weather, so storms as have been known in the past, will no longer occur. But this is not protection from the heat of the day or from storms, because they will not exist. This verse adds to the picture of the perfect peace and comfort that will exist in the Millennium.
The meaning here is that on any given sunny day, when the heat is high and a person seeks shelter in the shade, then there is a certain level of comfort afforded by that shade, and that is what is being portrayed here. The comfort level that God provides will be such that people will be at ease and comfortable.
With the things of the old days now past, and this is looking at the future as though it were the present, then life will be at ease, and very comfortable. That is the environment that will exist for people who survive the Tribulation and enter into the Millennium. They will have a life of stress free ease and comfort.
The high heat of life, the storms of life, all of the things that served to burden people into various tensions and stresses, will no longer exist. Life is going to be perfect, as it were, now that God (Jesus Christ) is at the helm of the world, and Satan has been locked up for the duration of the millennium, and all evil that had existed is now gone.
