(3) The tabernacle.--Rather, a tabernacle which is called the Holy of Holies. This literal translation of a Hebrew expression for "most holy" does not occur in the Bible, but has become familiar through the Latin sanctum sanctorum. The inner chamber of the Tabernacle is in a few passages only mentioned separately in the Pentateuch as the "Most Holy Place"

(Exodus 26:33-34), or "the Holy Place" (Leviticus 16:2, et al.). In the description of the Temple a different word is employed, always rendered "oracle" (1Kings 6:16, et al.). The veil separating the two divisions (described in Exodus 26:31; Exodus 36:35) is here called the second veil, by way of distinction from the "hanging for the door" of the Tabernacle (Exodus 26:36; Exodus 36:37). . . .
