Exodus 38:21-40:38

Exodus 39:32-33  And all the work of the Dwelling Place of the Tent of Appointment was completed. And the children of Yisra’ěl did according to all that יהוה had commanded Mosheh, so they did. And they brought the Dwelling Place to Mosheh…

During Israel's journey there were times of unity and times of disunity.

And now, the Israelites have worked together the past 6-7 months building the elements for the Tabernacle.

Moses is being instructed by YHWH on how to erect, set-up, raise the Tabernacle. And now they have reached a climatic moment in their journey.

The Tabernacle is now complete and functioning properly.   dam bwf-tov meod

Shemot - Exodus 30: 22-23

Exodus 30:23,a  “And take for yourself choice spices, five hundred sheqels of liquid myrrh,…”

The word myrrh comes from the Hebrew word for Marar (maw-raw) meaning bitter.

Myrrh is a fragrant resin produced by bushes and trees covered with very long, very sharp thorns. To harvest myrrh one must fight through the thorns and pierce the bark and cause the precious liquid life source of the plant to ooze forth.

The resin that flows and hardens is referred to as "tears," because it forms into tear like shapes.

The myrrh that was of high quality was called the "Myrrh of Freedom" because it was that which flowed freely of itself, or when cut that which flowed from the wounds.

Myrrh has a fragrant aroma but is bitter to the taste.
