Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers
Exodus 37

 

 

Verse 1

(1) Bezaleel made.—Aholiab had no part in the construction of the furniture of the Tabernacle, but only in the coverings, the veil, the curtains, and the priests’ dresses. (See Exodus 38:23.)


Verses 1-24

Verse 7

(7) Beaten out of one piece.—Rather, of beaten work, as the word is translated in Exodus 26:18.


Verse 16

(16) Which were upon the table.—Or, which belonged to the table ( τὰ σκένη τῆς τραπέζης.—LXX.).


Verse 19

(19) Another branch.—A right translation—an improvement on “the other branch” of Exodus 25:33. The meaning is that there was the same style of ornamentation in all the branches.


Verses 25-28

(25-28) And he made . . . —The order of the instructions given on Mount Sinai is here departed from. In them the directions for the altar of incense were separated off from those concerning the table of shewbread and the golden candlestick. Here the construction of the three pieces of furniture belonging to the Holy Place is given consecutively. The present passage corresponds with Exodus 37:1-5 of Exodus 30, with which it is in the closest agreement.


Verse 29

(29) In this verse we have the composition by Bezaleel of the holy oil and the incense, described in Exodus 30:22-25; Exodus 30:34-35, related with the utmost brevity.
