(21) The vail of the covering.--See Note on Exodus 39:34, and comp, above, Exodus 40:3.

Verse 21. - Set up the veil of the covering - i.e., hung the veil on the four pillars between the holy place and the holy of holies, and thus covered - i.e., concealed from sight, the ark of the testimony. (See the comment on ver. 3) 40:16-33 When the tabernacle and the furniture of it were prepared, they did not put off rearing it till they came to Canaan; but, in obedience to the will of God, they set it up in the midst of their camp. Those who are unsettled in the world, must not think that this will excuse want of religion; as if it were enough to begin to serve God when they begin to be settled in the world. No; a tabernacle for God is very needful, even in a wilderness, especially as we may be in another world before we come to fix in this. And we may justly fear lest we should deceive ourselves with a form of godliness. The thought that so few entered Canaan, should warn young persons especially, not to put off the care of their souls.
