Rams' Skins

RAMS' SKINS

The skin of the sheep, roughly tanned with all the wool on, is the common winter jacket of the shepherd or peasant, the ram's being considered especially desirable (compare Hebrews 11:37). Hence, the appropriateness of these skins in the covering of the tabernacle (Exodus 25:5, etc.).

See TABERNACLE; DYE, DYEING.
