7 "Make curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle-eleven altogether.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Exodus 26:7

Commentary on Exodus 26:7-14

(Read Exodus 26:7-14)

The curtains of meaner materials, being made both longer and broader, covered the others, and were defended by coverings of skins. The whole represents the person and doctrine of Christ, and the church of true Christians, and all heavenly things, which outwardly are mean, but inwardly, and in the sight of God, are glorious and precious.
