Bible Commentary for Exodus 26:2

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 26:2


26:1 The curtains were to be embroidered with cherubim, to intimate that the angels of God pitched their tents round about the church, #Psa 34:7|. As there were cherubim over the mercy - seat, so there were round the tabernacle. There were to be two hangings, five breadths to each, sewed together, and the two hangings coupled together with golden clasps or tacks, so that it might be all one tabernacle, #Ex 26:6|. Thus the churches of Christ, though they are many, yet are one, being fitly joined together in holy love and by the unity of the Spirit, so growing into one holy temple in the Lord. This tabernacle was very strait and narrow, but at the preaching of the gospel, the church is bid to enlarge the place of her tent, and to stretch forth her curtains, #Isa 54:2|.
