V. 1-8 The two pieces which were between the gate of the court and the tabernacle building. All were gold or covered with gold inside the tabernacle, while brass (copper) was used outside in the court. Remember gold is a picture of God's holiness; brass can be a picture of endurance (Christ's).
V. 9-20 The only gate was on the east side. It was not simply white material as the rest of the court hangings, but a beautiful sight! In John 10:99I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (John 10:9), we learn Who the "gate" or "door" is, and how lovely He is in the eyes of one who wants to learn divine truth. The east is toward the sun-rising and Mal. 4:22But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. (Malachi 4:2) makes the meaning of this plain to us, too. The tabernacle faced the East. We believers too, face the sun-rise, the unbelievers toward the sunset!
