(25) In the tabernacle of the congregation.--Better, in the tent of meeting. It is important to distinguish between the ohel--i.e., the tent--and the mishkan--i.e., the tabernacle--which was the building of shittim wood with its curtains which was within the tent. The word ohel, where it occurs in the second place in this verse, evidently means the outer covering, as in Exodus 26:7, where the passage may be literally rendered thus :--"And thou shalt make curtains (or hangings) of goats' (hair) for an ohel upon (or over) the mishkan."

The covering thereof.--The mikseh (covering) appears to include the two coverings described in Exodus 26:14--viz., the covering of rams' skins and that of badgers' skins or seals' skins.

The hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation--i.e., for the entrance or opening of the tent of meeting. This hanging was of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine-twined linen, and was hung at the entrance--i.e., the eastern or open end of the tent (Exodus 26:36). The word rendered door (pethach, not deleth) means an opening. At a later period, when the Tabernacle was at Shiloh, it had doors (1Samuel 3:15). Both words occur in 1Kings 6:31 : "And for the entering (or at the opening) of the oracle he made doors." &c.

Verse 25. - The charge of the sons of Gershon. See Numbers 4:24-26. And the charge of the sons of Gershom,.... The Libnites and Shimites:

in the tabernacle of the congregation; or with respect to the things of it, when it was taken down and committed to them; for otherwise they had no place in it, nor might they enter into it, or do any service therein:

shall be the tabernacle and the tent; the former intends not the boards of it, which were the charge of the Merarites, Numbers 3:36; but the curtains, as Aben Ezra, or the under curtains, as Jarchi calls them, which were made of fine twined linen, Exodus 26:1; and the latter is to be understood of the eleven curtains, as Aben Ezra, the curtains of goats hair, which were made for the roof of the tabernacle, as Jarchi observes, see Exodus 26:7,

the covering thereof: made of rams' skins, and badgers' skins, which were thrown over the tent, Exodus 26:14,

and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation; the vail, as Jarchi calls it; not what divided the holy and most holy places, for that fell to the charge of the Kohathites, Numbers 3:31; but the vail or hanging which was at the door of the tent, or which led into the holy place, Exodus 26:36. 3:14-39 The Levites were in three classes, according to the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari; and these were subdivided into families. The posterity of Moses were not at all honoured or privileged, but stood upon the level with other Levites; thus it was plain, that Moses did not seek the advancement of his own family, or to secure any honours to it. The tribe of Levi was by much the least of all the tribes. God's chosen are but a little flock in comparison with the world.
