The wall enclosing the Tabernacle consisted of a high wall made of
white linen curtains hanging upon 60 pillars. These pillars were
probably made of acacia wood, and stood more than 5 cubits (7.5 feet) high.
The base of each pillar stood in a brass socket, and each pillar
was held upright by cords
fastened to hooks near the top of the pillar and brass tent pegs
driven into the ground, both inside and outside the court.
The pillars were connected together with silver rods,
forming a continuous framework around the Tabernacle.
