EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony.—The most precious of the objects which the tabernacle was to contain was to be placed in it; first. Then immediately it was to be covered up with the vail.Exodus 40:17.
the tabernacle—the entire edifice.
the tent—the covering that surmounted it (Ex 40:19).
and cover the ark with the vail; not with the propitiatory or mercy seat, as the Targum of Jonathan; for though that was a covering or lid to the ark, yet not a vail; this was the vail that divided between the holy place and the most holy, and so covered or hid the ark from the sight even of the priests that went into the holy place.And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)3. See Exodus 26:33.Verse 3. - The first thing to be placed within the tabernacle was the ark of the testimony, as containing the foundation of the covenant between God and Israel, and being the special token of God's presence with his people. See the comment on Exodus 25:10. The "two tables" were placed within the ark before it was brought into the tabernacle (vers. 20, 21). Cover the ark with the veil - i.e., "hang up the veil in front of the ark, so as to cover or conceal it." Exodus 27:19.
