Exodus 26

1 The special tent, or tabernacle, was to convey honor, royalty, respect, and dignity. Again, the idea here is to give God your best.
7 If I read this correctly, the curtains described above would be covered by the goat's hair tent. The fine linen curtains would only be seen inside the tent. The goat hair tent would protect the fine linen.
11 The clasps on the goat hair tent did not have to be as dignified as the clasps on the fine linen curtains. Inside the curtain was symbolic of God's presence. Outside the tent was symbolic of the sinful world.
14 Two other coverings were made. These would make the tent waterproof.
15 Boards of acacia wood were used to make a frame for the curtains to hang on.
17 Some kind of ball connectors or claps (literally "hands") were formed in the wood to hold them to one another or connect them to the bases.
19 Knobs in the wooden board might have rested in the silver sockets.
24 The text does not give us enough detail to determine exactly how these corners were constructed.
26 The placement of the acacia bars also appears to be obscure. Wycliffe holds that they were for strengthening the structure.
33 Placing the ark behind the veil represents man's separation from God. It was only after the sacrificial death of Jesus that man's sin no longer prevented free access to God for those who believe in Him (Mat 27:51, Heb 10:19-22).
