Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

Exodus 39

Verses 1-43

THE HOLY GARMENTS OF THE PRIESTS, Exodus 39:1-31 See notes on Exodus 28:0.


How long the preparation of the different parts of the tabernacle required we are not told, but the zeal and diligence implied in the willing offerings of the people warrant the belief that the whole would have been completed in a few months. According to Josephus, the whole time they were engaged in this work was seven months. ( Ant., 3: 8, 4.) As Moses had received by revelation in the mount the plan and pattern of the tabernacle, it was necessary that all the parts should finally be submitted to him for acceptance and blessing.
