(Proverbs 14:11 KJV) The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
What are the lessons in the word pictures of these words? The “upright” (3477) are given a “tabernacle” (tent NASB) (168). I am not sure if the KJV gives more clarity or less. The word is meant to carry emotional meaning. This refers back to the tent of meeting or the Tabernacle, which was a tent. The tent moves as God moves and is able to adapt to flexible needs. Remember that each day the children of Israel would follow the cloud as God led. Each time they stopped they would set up the Tabernacle and set up the Holy of Holies. It was part of God’s promise to be where His people were.
So? Keep in mind that God being with His people meant that they had to follow where He would lead. It gave flexibility and variety but it also demanded obedience.
