Treasury of Scripture

Fifty loops shall you make in the one curtain, and fifty loops shall you make in the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling of the second; that the loops may take hold one of another.

no reference











(5) That the loops may take hold one of another.--Rather, correspond one to another. They were not to "take hold," but to be attached by golden links.

Taches, or clasps. These might be split-rings, or links like modern sleeve-links.

And it shall be one tabernacle.--Rather, and (so) the tabernacle shall be one. The division of the curtain which formed the roof into two portions tended to make a division in the tabernacle itself. To prevent this, the two curtains were to be so looped together as to be practically one. Thus the tabernacle itself became one.
