Overview

The golden candlestick was a very important item within the tabernacle's holy place. Like all other furniture, it was also very costly. At the end of each branch, and at the end of the central shaft, were lamps that contained oil. The branches and the shaft were beaten into a series of knobs, bowls, and flowers. An equal number of these constituted each branch and the shaft.
