Exodus 38* The brazen altar and laver. (1-8) The court. (9-20) Theofferings of the people. (21-31)1-8 In all ages of the church there have been some persons moredevoted to God, more constant in their attendance upon hisordinances, and more willing to part even with lawful things,for his sake, than others. Some women, devoted to God andzealous for the tabernacle worship, expressed zeal by partingwith their mirrors, which were polished plates of brass. Beforethe invention of looking-glasses, these served the samepurposes. 9-20 The walls of the court being of curtains only, intimatedthat the state of the Jewish church itself was movable andchangeable; and in due time to be taken down and folded up, whenthe place of the tent should be enlarged, and its cordslengthened, to make room for the Gentile world. 21-31 The foundation of massy pieces of silver showed thesolidity and purity of the truth upon which the church isfounded. Let us regard the Lord Jesus Christ while reading ofthe furniture of the tabernacle. While looking at the altar ofburnt-offering, let us see Jesus. In him, his righteousness, andsalvation, is a full and sufficient offering for sin. In thelaver of regeneration, by his Holy Spirit, let our souls bewashed, and they shall be clean; and as the people offeredwillingly, so may our souls be made willing. Let us be ready topart with any thing, and count all but loss to win Christ.
