And a cubit on the one side, and a cubit on the other side o
that which remaineth in the length of the curtains of the tent
The curtains of the tent, or the goat hair curtains, were two cubits longer than the other, and these are the two cubits, one on one side and the other on the other, which remained, and by which they were longer than the linen curtains:
it shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle;
the north and south sides: on this side,
and on that side, to cover it;
and as the above learned doctor observes F15, their length of fifteen yards reached half a yard lower on either side than the other curtains did, and yet they came not to the ground by a quarter of a yard; so that the silver foundations (of which afterwards) were always plain to be seen everywhere but at the west end.
