Exodus 26:23-24 - Tabernacle Tent Corner Boards - Part 1

The corner boards of the Mishkan Tent is the most important and critical element for achieving an understanding of the entire structure. Without figuring out the correct shape and dimensions of these boards, it is impossible to connect together all the elements of the Tabernacle.

Lets' take a look:

Exodus 26:23-24

23 And two boards shalt thou make for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.

24 And they shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall be coupled together above the head of it unto one ring: thus shall it be for them both; they shall be for the two corners.
‎23 ‏וּשְׁנֵ֤י קְרָשִׁים֙ תַּעֲשֶׂ֔ה לִמְקֻצְעֹ֖ת הַמִּשְׁכָּ֑ן בַּיַּרְכָתָֽיִם׃

‎24 ‏וְיִֽהְי֣וּ תֹֽאֲמִים֮ מִלְּמַטָּה֒ וְיַחְדָּ֗ו יִהְי֤וּ תַמִּים֙ עַל־רֹאשׁ֔וֹ אֶל־הַטַּבַּ֖עַת הָאֶחָ֑ת כֵּ֚ן יִהְיֶ֣ה לִשְׁנֵיהֶ֔ם לִשְׁנֵ֥י הַמִּקְצֹעֹ֖ת יִהְיֽוּ׃

And two boards shalt thou make for the corners of the tabernacle...

...in the two sides...


Each corner-board was made out of two regular boards...

...these regular boards were bended into semi-tube shape...

...and when put together, they would form a tube-shaped corner-boards as the original text states...

And they shall be coupled together beneath...

...and they shall be coupled together above the head of it...

...unto one ring...

...thus shall it be for them both...

...they shall be for the two corners...



And that is pretty much it...

Each corner board would be 10 cubits tall, with an outside diameter 1 cubit, an inside diameter of 3/pi=~0.9549 cubits and the thickness of a 0.5-(1.5/pi)=~0.0225 cubits(a fingerbreadth).

Each part of each corner-board would be 10 cubits tall, with 1.5 cubits inner circumference and pi/2=~1.57 cubits outer circumference.

Any other shape and dimensions of the corner-boards of the Tent would be mathematically incorrect, and would not fit the description given in this chapter (Exodus 26)
