Below are articles from the following 2 dictionaries:
International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Canopy:

kan'-o-pi (chuppah, from a root meaning "to enclose" or "cover"): Isa 4:5 the King James Version has "defence," the English Revised Version "canopy," the American Standard Revised Version "covering," the last being best, though "canopy" has much in its favor. In Ps 19:5 (Hebrew 19:6) chuppah is used of the bridegroom's chamber and in Joe 2:16 of the bride's. Among the Hebrews the chuppah was originally the chamber in which the bride awaited the groom for the marital union. In Judith 10:21; 13:9,15; 16:19 the word canopy occurs as the English equivalent of the Greek konopeion, which was primarily a mosquito-net and then a canopy over a bed, whether for useful or for decorative purposes.

Written by John Richard Sampey

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Canopy:

(Judith 10:21; 13:9; 16:19). The canopy of Holofernes is the only one mentioned.
