EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Exodus 26:19.
Fillets - Rather, Connecting rods; curtain-rods of silver connecting the heads of the pillars. The hangings were attached to the pillars by the silver hooks; but the length of the space between the pillars would render it most probable that they were also in some way fastened to these rods.
shall be hangings of fifty cubits: or twenty five yards and more, so that the court was but half as broad as it was long:
their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; which was a number proportionate to the hangings, and stood at an equal distance from each other, as the pillars for the sides, at five cubits, or two yards and a half, as commonly computed.And for the breadth of the court on the west side shall be hangings of fifty cubits: their pillars ten, and their sockets ten.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Verse 12. - The west side is also to be similar, except that it is to be half the length, fifty cubits - and, therefore, requires only half the number of pillars and sockets. Exodus 27:8, "hollow with tables shalt thou make it, as it was showed thee in the mount" (cf. Exodus 25:9), refer apparently, if we judge from Exo 20:24-25, simply to the wooden framework of the altar, which was covered with brass, and which was filled with earth, or gravel and stones, when the altar was about to be used, the whole being levelled so as to form a hearth. The shape thus given to the altar of burnt-offering corresponded to the other objects in the sanctuary. It could also be carried about with ease, and fixed in any place, and could be used for burning the sacrifices without the wooden walls being injured by the fire.
