The tabernacle was a rectangular structure that consisted of 2 rooms: the first, called the “Holy Place,” measured 30 ft. (20 cubits) long, 15 ft. (10 cubits) wide, and 15 ft. (10 cubits) high. On the right side (north side) was the table of showbread. On the left side (south side) was the golden lampstand. Farther in to the center of the Holy Place was the altar of incense. This was the room where the priest ministered daily before the Lord.
