the tabernacle

1 Kings 8:4,6
And they brought up the ark of the LORD, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, even those did the priests and the Levites bring up…









(5) These did the priests and the Levites bring up.--Heb., the priests the Levites (which some explain "the Levitical priests," as in Joshua 3:3) brought them up. But some Hebrew MSS. LXX., and Syriac, read "the priests and the Levites;" Arab., "the Levites and the priests;" and Vulg., "the priests with the Levites." Above all, 1Kings 8:4 has, "And the priests and the Levites brought them up." It appears, therefore, that the conjunction is rightly supplied by the Authorised Version.

Verse 5. - In the parallel (1 Kings 8:4), the "and" in the last line of this verse does not need the italic type, but is found in the Hebrew text, confirming our version of ver. 4 foregoing. The tabernacle of the congregation; or, tent of meeting, designs here the tabernacle of Moses from Gibeon (comp. 1 Kings 3:4; 1 Samuel 21:6; 1 Chronicles 16:39, 40; 2 Chronicles 1:3), and not the tent of Mount Zion (2 Samuel 6:17). This tabernacle, then, and these holy vessels all, are carried into the new temple, as venerated relics and sacred mementoes of a memorable past of vicissitude. But the ark had still its ministry to perform (ver. 7).
