The wall enclosing the Tabernacle consisted of a high wall made of white linen curtains hanging upon 60 pillars. These pillars were probably made of acacia wood, and stood more than 5 cubits (7.5 feet) high. The base of each pillar stood in a brass socket, and each pillar was held upright by cords (Exodus 35:18) fastened to hooks near the top of the pillar and brass tent pegs (Exodus 27:19) driven into the ground, both inside and outside the court. The pillars were connected together with silver rods, forming a continuous framework around the Tabernacle.
