I understand that the Hebrew words for tent, tabernacle, tent of meeting, sacred tent, etc. are somewhat interchangeable, correct? But what I am curious about is the actual 100 cubit X 50 cubit structure, not the 30 cubit X 10 cubit tabernacle proper. Apparently this structure remained at Shiloh during the time of the judges. 18:31 So they set up for themselves Micah’s graven image which he had made, all the time that the house of God was at Shiloh. Now the ark of the covenant only was taken into battle at Ebenezer and captured by the Philistines according to 1 Sam. 5:1. It was eventually re-captured and taken to Jerusalem. David created some kind of structure for the ark at that point. 2 Sam. 6:17 So they brought in the ark of the Lord and set it in its place inside the tent which David had pitched for it ... Later, Joab fled to the "tent of the Lord" (1 Ki. 2:28) and I am assuming that this is the same structure that David had built, not anything resembling the original tabernacle. Then when the ark was brought into the completed temple, They [elders and priests] brought up the ark of the Lord and the tent of meeting and all the holy utensils, which were in the tent ... (1 Ki. 8:4). So does that mean they brought all the original furnishings including the curtains, basin, lampstand, altars, etc. The whole 100 X 50 cubit structure or the 30 X 10 inner structure, or neither? OK, I'll stop asking questions and try to keep this post focused. I guess what I'm asking is, What happened to the original tabernacle after it was erected in Shiloh after the conquest?Were the curtains, furnishings, etc. simply left there? Was is still used for worship? Were the holy utensils the same ones later transferred to Solomon's temple? Thank you for any insight.
