7. THE HANGING FOR THE DOOR.

(36, 37) It is essential in the East to shut out light and heat, whence tents have always doors. These are usually made of a piece of cloth, which is raised for a man to enter, and falls behind him. But for a tent of the size described, which seems to have been above twenty-two feet high in the centre, something more was required. The "hanging" spoken of appears to have been a beautifully embroidered curtain, which could be either drawn up or let down, and which was attached by golden "hooks" to five pillars plated with gold, thus dividing the entrance into four equal spaces.

Verses 36, 37. - The entrance to the tent. Verse 36. - Thou shalt make a hanging. A curtain which could draw up and. down, seems to be intended. When let down, it probably covered the entire eastern side, or front of the tabernacle. When raised, it allowed the eye to penetrate into the holy place.
