CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Rams' skins dyed red - Skins tanned and colored like the leather now known as red morocco.

No other kind of wood was employed in the tabernacle or its furniture. In the construction of the temple cedar and fir took its place 1 Kings 5:8; 1 Kings 6:18; 2 Chronicles 2:8.
