The second layer of covering was made from 11 curtains of woven goats' hair. Each curtain measured 30 cubits (45 feet) x 4 cubits (6 feet). Five curtains were joined together as one set and six curtains as the other set. These two sets were then held together by 50 bronze clasps to form one single covering. This covering covers the entire Framework and overhung the front door. The goat was one of the animals used for sacrifice, primarily on the Day of Atonement, when two goats were taken. One was to be killed as a sin offering and one was to be sent to the wilderness as the "scapegoat". The blood of the slaughtered goat was used to sanctify the Most Holy Place and the Holy Place (Leviticus 16:15-16). This covering therefore signifies sanctification of the church through Christ (Ephesians 5:23-27).
