Tabernacle 

The description of the Tabernacle in Exodus comes from the fifth century B.C. Priestly source of the Pentateuch. In some respects this description probably reflects the structure and furnishings of the Solomonic Temple. The shrine of the time of Moses may have been a somewhat simpler tent, which appears in Ex 33:7-11 and elsewhere as the Tent of Meeting.
