“Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am Holy.””
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me””
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, can we follow Jesus save we be willing to keep the commandments of the Father?”
2 Nephi 31:10
There were sixty pillars which surrounded the courtyard and formed the perimeter of the tabernacle complex.
The following image illustrates the northeastern corner of the perimeter fence and the spacing between each pillar. The four corner pillars, in my opinion, were spaced slightly closer (0.125 cubits) so as to remain inside the stated dimensions of the courtyard – 100 x 50 cubits. The silver fillet that is referred to in the image was a silver bar that connected once pillar to the other. It is from this tiny bar that the fence linen was hung from. A portion of the hanging has been removed from the image to better demonstrate the silver fillet.
