Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Ezra 9

 

 

Verses 1-15

Ezra 9:8 And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.

Ezra 9:8 — "to give us a nail in his holy place" - Comments- Of all the articles and fixtures of the Tabernacle, none was smaller and more insignificant than a simple nail. Ezra was comparing their place in the service of the Lord to a most humble position of service. Note that even the Jews saw the symbolic meanings of the pattern of the Tabernacle as is shown here in this verse.
