Tabernacle Katelyn Barry Box # 1845 11/15/12 History Of Ancient Israel 1 David Fish Barry 1 The Tabernacle and its Furnishings I have taken an interest in the tabernacle and its furnishings, so I have decided to write my research paper on it.

Two onyx stones were to be taken and on them engraved names of Israel’s sons. The Breastpiece An embroidered brestpiece was to be made for making decisions. Made with the same workmanship as the ephod. Bibliography 1: Edward Dennett - Typical Teachings of Exodus - Bible Truths Publishers 2: Charles W. Slemming – Made According to Pattern – Henry E.
