    @Sandy- Here is what I found

    The cubit is an ancient unit based on the forearm length from the middle finger tip to the elbow bottom.

    Verse 43: Doing things the way that Jehovah God commands us to do results in blessings.

    They used the forearm of the current leader...That is why the stick is called a ruler

    To Sandy on Tabernacle - All I know is a 'cubit' is the length of one's forearm - from elbow to either finger tips or just wrist. An adult males forearm is basically the same between males - I guess? To get a TRUE measurement though, they'd have to use the same guy; can you imagine - being a measuring stick on a job???

    These last few chapters of Exodus are about building the Tabernacle. I love the way God told Moses how he wanted it built and these other guys came WITH WISDOM and knew exactly how God told Moses, he wanted it built. The Sad part. is I have no clue what any of the measurements mean. :(

    God is holy and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
