Exodus 27 is a chapter that focuses on the construction of the tabernacle, the place of worship for the Israelites. The Lord instructs Moses to build the tabernacle with acacia wood and overlay it with gold. He also instructs Moses to make a courtyard around the tabernacle with curtains of fine linen and hang a gate of blue, purple, and scarlet yarn. The Lord also commands Moses to make an altar of acacia wood and overlay it with bronze. He also instructs Moses to make a laver of bronze and its base of bronze.
This chapter is significant because it shows the importance of the tabernacle to the Israelites. It was a place of worship and a place where the Lord could dwell among them. The instructions given to Moses show the attention to detail that was necessary in order to build a structure that was pleasing to the Lord. The use of gold, bronze, and fine linen demonstrate the importance of the tabernacle and the reverence that the Israelites had for it.
This chapter also serves as a reminder of the importance of obedience to God's commands. The Lord gave Moses very specific instructions on how to build the tabernacle and Moses followed them faithfully. This is a reminder to us that we should always strive to obey God's commands and to be faithful to Him.
