{Exodus 40:33} And he reared up 6965 z8686 x853 the court 2691 round about 5439 the tabernacle 4908 and the altar, 4196 and set up 5414 z8799 x853 the hanging 4539 of the court 2691 gate. 8179 So Moses 4872 finished 3615 z8762 x853 the work. 4399
up the court:
"And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate." {Exd 40:8} + "And thou shalt make the court of the tabernacle: for the south side southward [there shall be] hangings for the court [of] fine twined linen of an hundred cubits long for one side: ... And for the gate of the court [shall be] an hanging of twenty cubits, [of] blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with needlework: [and] their pillars [shall be] four, and their sockets four." {Exd 27:9-16} + "But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that [belong] to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle." {Num 1:50} + "[Which] when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?" {Mtt 16:8} + "For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ." {1Co 12:12} + "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues." {1Co 12:28} + "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; ... Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" {Eph 4:11-13} + "Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service [of God]. ... But into the second [went] the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and [for] the errors of the people:" {Hbr 9:6-7}
the tabernacle:
The tabernacle might either be called a house or a tent, because it had wooden walls and partitions like a house, and curtains and hangings like a tent; but as it externally resembled a common oblong tent, and the wooden walls were without a roof, and properly only supports for the many curtains and hangings spread over them, it is more properly called a tent. Even the ordinary tents of the Arabs have at least two main divisions; the innermost for the women, and hence called sacred, i.e., cut off, inaccessible. In the tent of an emir the innermost space is accessible to himself only, or those whom he particularly honours; into the outer tent others may come. The furniture is costly, the floor covered with a rich carpet, and has a stand with a censer and coals, on which incense is strewed. Hence we have the simple idea after which this magnificent royal tent of Jehovah, the King and God of the Hebrews, was made.
"I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." {Jhn 10:9} + "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." {Jhn 14:6} + "For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father." {Eph 2:18} + "Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast [our] profession. ... Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." {Hbr 4:14-16}
So Moses:
"Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they." {Exd 39:32} + "So he built the house, and finished it; and covered the house with beams and boards of cedar." {1Kg 6:9} + "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you." {Zch 4:9} + "Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work." {Jhn 4:34} + "I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." {Jhn 17:4} + "I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith:" {2Tm 4:7} + "Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses [was faithful] in all his house. ... And Moses verily [was] faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;" {Hbr 3:2-5} - Cross Reference Bible Search
