Exodus 25:9 Meaning and Commentary

Exodus 25:9

According to all that I show thee
That is, the sanctuary was to be made in all respects exactly according to the view of it that Moses now had upon the mount from God, and which he was to communicate to the workmen for their instruction and direction;

after the pattern of the tabernacle, and of the pattern of all the
instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it:
and by the "pattern" is not meant an idea of it, impressed on the mind of Moses, or a picture of it which was shown him, but a little edifice representing it in all its parts, a perfect model of it: and so Maimonides F9 says, "Tabnith", the word here used, signifies the structure and disposition of anything, i.e. the form of it in a four square, in roundness, in a triangle, or in any of the like figures, see ( Hebrews 8:5 ) and so David had, by the Spirit, a pattern of the temple, and which he gave to his son Solomon, to build according to it, ( 1 Chronicles 28:11 1 Chronicles 28:12 1 Chronicles 28:19 ) .
