“And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the LORD, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:”
King James Version (KJV)
28:12 By the spirit - All the particulars of the tabernacle built byMoses were suggested to him by God's spirit, and it is not crediblethat God would use less care and exactness in the building of this farmore glorious and durable work. All this, it seems, was given him inwriting, probably by the ministry of an angel. The temple was to be asacred thing, a type of Christ, of his church, and of heaven. Thereforeit was not to be contrived by man's invention, but to be framed by divineinstitution. So Christ, the true temple, the church, the gospel - temple,and heaven, the everlasting temple, are all framed according to the divinecounsels, and the plan laid before the world began. It is supposed, thetabernacle of Moses, with all its utensils, being wanted no more, was laidup here.
