Details in Exodus 26

The chapters about the tabernacle considered to be a challenge for every teacher and reader of the Bible. There are many details that maybe difficult to understand. Another difficulty is that we can just imagine the tabernacle in the wilderness, since we are not there, and the tabernacle is not with us.

However, we can’t avoid the words of the Bible and let’s examine one sentence from the text, as written:

נָתַתָּ֣ה אֶת־הַפָּרֹכֶת֮ תַּ֣חַת הַקְּרָסִים֒ וְהֵבֵאתָ֥ שָׁ֙מָּה֙ מִבֵּ֣ית לַפָּרֹ֔כֶת אֵ֖ת אֲר֣וֹן הָעֵד֑וּת וְהִבְדִּילָ֤ה הַפָּרֹ֙כֶת֙ לָכֶ֔ם בֵּ֣ין הַקֹּ֔דֶשׁ וּבֵ֖ין קֹ֥דֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִֽׁים׃

“Hang the curtain from the clasps and place the ark of the covenant law behind the curtain. The curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place”(Exodus 26:33)

The most important detail is that there are levels of holiness- holy and holy of holiness. If we’ll take the word holy and replace it with the word priority- I think that our decisions would be better.

Don’t you?

Have a blessed day, Eli
