V. 1-7 What over-flowing generosity. What wisdom, what ability were combined to complete this magnificent work!
V. 8 Many men and women (verses 25-26 of chapter 35). There is work for all, each in his or her place.
V. 9-19 When the Lord told Moses about the tabernacle, beginning in chapter 25, the ark of His presence was the first thing spoken of. But when the work is begun, the four coverings of the tabernacle are made first.
V. 20-34 What would you think of these workers if they had set up the boards in several groups? In verse 22 "connected one with the other" to form one tabernacle. Yet there are some Christians today who say that it is alright to have many groups of Christians, separated from each other (see John 17:20-2120Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (John 17:20‑21)).
