The Tabernacle Veil

This is VERY simplified information on the veil of the Holy of Holies of the Tabernacle.

Exo. 26:31-37 The veil (as opposed to the outer curtains for which God also gave detailed description earlier in the same chapter) separated the Holy place (tabernacle) from the Holy of Holies (the inner room of the tabernacle where only the High Priest could enter, and only on Yom Kippur). The Holy of Holies is where the Ark of the Covenant was kept.
  • Made of blue, purple & scarlet material of fine twisted linen with cherubim embroidered
  • Hung on 4 pillars of Acacia wood overlaid in gold, with hooks of gold. These pillars sat on 4 sockets of silver
After the veil was hung, the Ark of the Covenant was brought in.

Outside the veil was the table for the bread (Exo. 25:23-30) on the North side. On the South side was placed the lampstand (25:31-40), and on the East side was an addition veil of blue & scarlet material (26:36-37) hung on 5 pillars of Acacia wood overlaid with gold with hooks of gold and on sockets of silver.
