Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types [3]

 Isaiah 1:8 (a) The lesson to be learned from this type is that the people of Israel had forsaken the gardens of GOD, the flowers and fruits of GOD's love and grace, and preferred to dwell among the pleasures of this world. Cucumbers were one of the foods of the Egyptians. They contained no nutriment, had little food value, and perish quickly. Israel seemed to prefer that kind of a life rather than the rich pasture provided by GOD Himself.

Lodge (verb)

 Matthew 13:32 (b) Here we see a graphic picture of the terrible state of the apostate church. The birds represent evil spirits. The tree with its many branches represents an unnatural growth in which wicked spirits feel at home in the various divisions of the great apostate religious world. The mustard seed never should produce a tree. This is an unnatural growth. So the present religious institutions filled with all sorts of evil doctrines, worldly practices and unsaved persons is not according to the will of GOD. The devil has his throne in the apostate church, as we read in Revelation 2:13. He and his evil angels are represented by the birds that lodge, make their nests and feel at home in the various branches of this huge, religious institution.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary [4]

To pass the night (Hebrew Luwn ).  Isaiah 10:29, the Assyrian invaders "have taken their lodging (their bivouac) at Geba."  Song of Solomon 7:11;  Nehemiah 4:22. The "lodge" ( Isaiah 1:8), and "cottage" ( Isaiah 24:20), "the earth shall reel to and fro ... and be removed as a cottage," refer to a temporary hut, or in the latter passage a hammock suspended from trees, to secure from wild beasts the watcher of gardens or lands in the night.

Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature [9]

(properly some form of the verb לוּן , Lun, or לַין , lin, to Stay Over Night, Αὐλίζομαι , etc.). See INN. In  Isaiah 1:8, the "lodge in a garden" ( מְלוּנָה , Meelunah', a Lodging-Place, rendered "cottage" in  Isaiah 24:20) signifies a shed or lodge for the watchman in a garden; it also refers to a sort of hanging bed or hammock, which travelers in hot climates, or the watchmen of gardens or vineyards, hang on high trees to sleep in at night, probably from the fear of wild beasts ( Isaiah 24:20). The lodge here referred to was a little temporary hut consisting of a low framework of poles, covered with boughs, straw, turf, or similar materials, for a shelter from the heat by day and the cold and dews by night, for the watchmen that kept the garden, or vineyard, during the short season while the fruit was ripening ( Job 27:18), and speedily removed when it had served that purpose. It is usually erected on a slight artificial mound of earth, with just space sufficient for one person, who, in this confined solitude, remains constantly watching the ripening crop, as the jackals during the vintage often destroy whole vineyards. and likewise commit great ravages in the gardens of cucumbers and melons. This protection is also necessary to prevent the depredations of thieves. To see one of these miserable sheds standing alone in the midst of a field or on the margin of it, occupied by its solitary watcher, often a decrepit or aged person, presents a striking image of dreariness and loneliness (Hackett's Illustra. of Scripture, page 162). (See Cottage).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [10]

loj ( לין , lı̄n  ; κατασκηνόω , kataskēnóō , etc.): To stay or dwell, temporarily, as for the night (  Genesis 32:13 ,  Genesis 32:21;  Numbers 22:8;  Joshua 2:1 the King James Version;   Joshua 4:3;  Luke 13:19;  Matthew 21:17 , aulı́zomai ), or permanently (Rth 1:16). In  Isaiah 1:8 , "a lodge ( melūnāh ) in a garden of cucumbers," the meaning is "hut," "cottage." "Evil thoughts" are said to "lodge" in the wicked ( Jeremiah 4:14 ).
