Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Exodus 26:15 (c) This board may be used as a type of a saved person. It was once a tree in the woods and of no value as a dwelling place for GOD. The tree had to die. It was cut down, made into boards, dressed, planed, and fitted. Even yet, it was not useful to GOD nor could it be placed in His holy temple. It must have silver tenons on the bottom to rest on in the sand. Silver speaks of redemption. It must have a covering of pure gold all over to hide the wood. Then it was fit for the tabernacle. ( Ephesians 2:22) So it is with the sinner. He must be cut down. He must die in the person of his Substitute, the Lord JESUS CHRIST. He must go with CHRIST through the sufferings of Calvary, his burial and resurrection, and then be clothed with the golden robe of righteousness, the beauty of his Saviour. He must rest on redemption ground and be joined to the other "boards." Then he helps, with them, to form "a habitation of God by His Spirit."
Song of Solomon 8:9 (b) The board here represents a type of all believers standing together "fitly joined together," Ephesians 4:16, in order to make a Church which is GOD's dwelling place.
