Allen Hugh McNeile, Book of Exodus

Built as a series of acacia-wood frames, the Tabernacle was covered with animal hides. The north and south sides of the tent were 20 frames in length (each frame was one and a half cubits wide). These sides were closed at the west end by a wall made of eight frames, two of which were specially positioned as corners. The majority opinion—that the Tabernacle measured 30 cubits by 10 cubits—is based on the assumption that these frames were erected side by side (as indicated in this reconstruction).
