John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 3:25

The Libnites and Shimites: in the tabernacle of the congregation;
or with respect to the things of it, when it was taken down and committed to them; for otherwise they had no place in it, nor might they enter into it, or do any service therein: [shall be] the tabernacle and the tent;

made of rams' skins, and badgers' skins, which were thrown over the tent, ( Exodus 26:14 ) ; and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation;
the vail, as Jarchi calls it; not what divided the holy and most holy places, for that fell to the charge of the Kohathites, ( Numbers 3:31 ) ; but the vail or hanging which was at the door of the tent, or which led into the holy place, ( Exodus 26:36 ) .
