* The length of the curtains being twenty eight cubits, and being laid across the width of the tabernacle, ten cubits covered the hollow, one cubit was allowed on each side for the thickness of the boards, so that there remained nine cubits on each side to cover the boards ; and, though they were ten cubits long, one entered into the sockets, and they remained uncovered. These ten curtains being joined together, it made them forty cubits long : thirty served to cover the hollow in length, and, one cubit being allowed for the thickness of the boards of the back part of the building, nine cubits remain to cover the said boards, leaving the sockets uncovered as at the sides.

Heb. The work of a cunning workman, or embroiderer. Here we have another covering of eleven curtains, each thirty cubits long and four broad; and they were placed in the same manner as the others; but, as these were two cubits longer, they covered the sockets on each side; and, having one curtain more, which is four cubits, for the length of the tabernacle, half of it hung over the door, in the front, as a vallence, and the other two cubits were left behind, one to cover the sockets, and the other for a slope,

nipje is derived from 'pclean ; so that this word, literally translated, means clean-keepers, bocause they preserved the shew-bread from growing mouldy; for, the order of the shew-bread upon the table was tbis :-The twelve loaves were baked in twelve metal frames, and then they were put in golden ones, on the table in two rows; these golden frames are here called Dinyp, dishes, . six of them were laid in one row, on the table, and over thein were laid golden staves, fixed in brackels, or boles, made in golden rods that were placed on each side the table standing upright, called here NIP, rods. These hules, or brackets, were placed a little higher than the loaves, that the air might come to them to hinder the loaves from growing mouldy; and therefore these staves were called pia, clean-keepers. These staves also served for a floor for the second row of six loaves, and over them was another row of staves; and therefore they were also called a covering.

Then there were like two sauce-boats, one to each row, to bold the frankincense necessary for the shew bread, as in Leviticus, chap. xxiv. ver. 6, and 7. These are called noe, rendered spoons ; büt, in Hebrew, any thing, that has a cavity to contain any thing, is so called. 43

Notwithstanding silver is here mentioned anong the free-will offerings, we do not find in the summary account of all the offerings, in chap. xxxviii. ver, 24, any other silver mentioned than the amount of the half-shekel ordered to be given for the ransom of their souls, which cannot be called an offering.–Secondly, I find, throughout Scripture, that the word MUTT) means fine steel, used for shary weapons.
