Treasury of Scripture

Two tenons shall there be in one board, set in order one against another: thus shall you make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

tenons Heb.











(17) Two tenons.--By "tenons" here are meant projections, probably round, from the end of each plank, made to fit into holes prepared for them in the "sockets." They were to be "set in order one against another": i.e., placed regularly at certain intervals, so that each corresponded in position to its fellow.

Verse 17. - Two tenons. Literally, "hands." Projecting rods, such as those common in our dinner tables, seem to be meant. They may have been of metal, let into the boards to a certain depth, and projecting several inches beyond them. Or, possibly, they may have been of acacia wood. In one board - i.e. "In each board" - no doubt, at the bottom of each. Set in order one against the other. Arranged, i.e., at regular intervals, the position of each corresponding to the position of its fellow.
