Hebrews 9:2

For there was a tabernacle made; the first, in which was the lampstand, and the table, and the showbread; which is called the sanctuary.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
First tabernacle. By this word is signified, the sanctuary or place for worshipping God, ordained by Moses, which was an oratory to be moved from place to place with the Israelites, which they kept afterwards, and had a resemblance of it in the temple. This tabernacle consisted of two parts, which St. Paul here calls the first and second. The first part was called the holy, which was separated from the rest of the temple by a veil. In this first part were the candlesticks, i.e. one candlestick, as it is called, Exodus xxv. 37., having seven branches in which were placed lamps; and a table, on which were placed twelve loaves, according to the number of the Jewish tribes, to be changed every week. (Witham)

John Chrysostom

AD 407
For (he says) there was a tabernacle made; the first, which is called holy, wherein was the Candlestick, and the Table, and the Show-bread. These things are symbols of the world.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
