Two parts one very good (1-9) and the other very bad (10-23).
V. 1-9 Notice some lovely words.
V. 1. The Lord; verse 2 pure oil, light continually, verse 3, testimony (reputation); verse 4, pure candlesticks; verse 5, fine flour, verse 6, pure tables; verse 7, pure frankincense; verse 8, everlasting; verse 9, Holy place, most holy. All these words are telling of the lovely atmosphere in the tabernacle (where God met the priests). The light was to burn all the time. The bread was eaten every Sabbath by Aaron and his sons. This can teach us we need the light of God each hour in our life John 12:3636While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. (John 12:36) & 46. We need to be feeding on Christ the bread which came down from heaven John 6:32-3532Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. (John 6:32‑35).
V. 10-23 Here is the contrast sin quarreling blaspheming cursing in ward (jail) stoning to death killing. All these are the result of sin.
V. 1-9 are inside God's house (V. 3) Verses 10-23 are outside. (V. 10). It is good to be in Christ, delivered from the corruption of the world.
