Tabernacle 

According to Ex 25-30, 35-40, the Tabernacle was a portable sanctuary of the Israelites. It was constructed at Sinai in connection with the making of the covenant. It was to be a place of sacrifice and worship. Rectangular in shape, the Tabernacle had a wooden framework and was covered with curtains. Its two main sections were the "holy place" and the "holy of holies." The holy of holies contained the Ark of the Covenant. The table of incense, the seven-branched lampstand, and the table for the bread of the presence stood in the holy place.
