The court of the tabernacle (Ex 27:9-27:19)

“You shall make the court of the tabernacle. On the south side the court shall have hangings of fine twisted linen one hundred cubits long for that side.  Its twenty pillars and their twenty bases shall be of bronze, but the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver.  And likewise for its length on the north side there shall be hangings one hundred cubits long, their pillars twenty and their bases twenty, of bronze, but the hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be of silver.  For the width of the court on the west side there shall be fifty cubits of hangings, with ten pillars and ten bases.  The width of the court on the front to the east shall be fifty cubits.  There shall be fifteen cubits of hangings on the one side, with three pillars and three bases. There shall be fifteen cubits of hangings on the other side, with three pillars and three bases.  For the gate of the court there shall be a screen twenty cubits long, of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and of fine twined linen, embroidered with needlework.  It shall have four pillars and with them four bases.  All the pillars around the court shall be banded with silver.  Their hooks shall be of silver, and their bases of bronze.  The length of the court shall be one hundred cubits.  The width fifty and the height five cubits, with hangings of fine twined linen and bases of bronze. All the utensils of the tabernacle for every use, and all its pegs and all the pegs of the court, shall be of bronze.”

The court yard is outside the tabernacle.  Here the hangings of fine twisted linen are 100 cubits long with 20 pillars and 20 bronze bases.  However, the hooks on the pillars are silver.  These linens are over a 150 feet long and the same is on the south side as on the north side.  The west side is half that size about 75’, with ten pillars and bases, so that it will be about 75’ x 150’ and about 9’ high.  There is a screen for a gate to the courtyard that is about 35’ wide.  It has the same color of twisted linen as above, with four silver pillars and bases.  The screen before the sanctuary became part of the Orthodox Christian and the Roman Catholic baroque practices.  However, all the utensils for the tabernacle and all the pegs of the court should be bronze.
