Abraham's bosom

(Luke 16:22,23) refers to the custom of reclining on couches at
table, which was prevalent among the Jews, an arrangement which
brought the head of one person almost into the bosom of the one
who sat or reclined above him. To "be in Abraham's bosom" thus
meant to enjoy happiness and rest (Matt. 8:11; Luke 16:23) at
the banquet in Paradise. (See BANQUET T0000434; MEALS
