ועשית. קרסי המשכן זהב כי הוא נכבד: AND THOU SHALT MAKE. The clasps of the curtains which made up the tabernacle51See I.E.’s comment on verse 6. were made of gold because they were used for the most important curtains.
והאהל. כמו מכסה. על כן קרסיו נחשת ואינם נראים. כי ב' מכסים על האהל: The tent served as a cover over the tabernacle. Its clasps were therefore made of brass.52For the tent was inferior to the tabernacle. The brass clasps were not visible because there were two covers over the tent.53See verse 14.
