(33) Thou shall hang up the vail under the taches.--The "taches" meant are the links whereby the two portions of the inner covering were connected together (Exodus 26:6). If "under the taches" means directly under them, we must regard the mishkan as divided into two chambers of equal size. It is possible, however, that "under" may be used with some vagueness, and that the "Holy of Holies" may in the tabernacle, as well as in the Temple, have been only half the size of the outer chamber.

That thou mayest bring in.--Heb., and thou shalt bring in.

Verse 33. - Thou shalt hang up the veil under the taches. If the "taches" of ver. 6 or even of ver. 11, are intended, and" under" is to be taken strictly as" immediately under," the mishkan must have been divided by the veil into two equal, or very nearly equal parts; and the tabernacle must in an important particular have completely differed from the temple. In the temple the holy place was twice the length of the holy of holies (1 Kings 6:16, 17). It is possible that "under "may be used vaguely, or that the "taches" of this verse are the "hooks" of ver. 32. That thou mayest bring in. Rather, "And thou shalt bring in." The clause is directive. The most holy. Literally, "the holy of holies" - the inner chamber, that within the veil, which constituted the adytum, or innermost recess of the tabernacle. The ark and the mercy-seat were the special furniture of this inner sanctuary. To these is added later (Exodus 30:1-10) the altar of incense.
