    Definitions for Numbers 7:3

    Tabernacle - A tent, booth or dwelling.

    Clarke's Commentary on Numbers 7:3

    Six covered wagons - שש עגלת צב shesh egloth tsab, six tilted wagons, the Septuagint translate ἑξ ἁμαξας λαμπηνικας, with which the Coptic agrees; but what lampenic chariots were, no person pretends to know. Covered or tilted is probably the meaning of the original. The wagons were given for the more convenient exporting of the heavier parts of the tabernacle, which could not be conveniently carried on men's shoulders.

    Barnes' Notes on Numbers 7:3

    Covered wagons - Some prefer to render "litter Isaiah 66:20 wagons:" i. e. litters which were not on wheels, but borne by two oxen, one in front and one behind. Such conveyances would probably be more convenient than wheeled wagons in the rough country to be traversed.

    Wesley's Notes on Numbers 7:3

    7:3 Waggons - For the more convenient and safe carriage of such things as were most cumbersome.
