Easton's Bible Dictionary - Holy Place
One of the two portions into which the tabernacle was divided (Exodus 26:31 ; 37:17-25 ; Hebrews 9:2 ). It was 20 cubits long and 10 in height and breadth. It was illuminated by the golden candlestick, as it had no opening to admit the light. It contained the table of showbread (Exodus 25:23-29 ) and the golden altar of incense (30:1-11). It was divided from the holy of holies by a veil of the most costly materials and the brightest colours. The arrangement of the temple (q.v.) was the same in this respect. In it the walls of hewn stone were wainscotted with cedar and overlaid with gold, and adorned with beautiful carvings. It was entered from the porch by folding doors overlaid with gold and richly embossed. Outside the holy place stood the great tank or "sea" of molten brass, supported by twelve oxen, three turned each way, capable of containing two thousand baths of water. Besides this there were ten lavers and the brazen altar of burnt sacrifice.

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Holy Place
In both the Tabernacle and the Temple, the outer or easternmost room. This room in the Tabernacle measured 20 X:10 cubits (about 30 X:15 feet); that of the Temple was 40 X:20 cubits. Whilst only a heavy screen of rich tapestry, hanging from five wooden posts, extended on the whole front of the Tabernacle, in the first Temple a double folding door of cypress wood with doorposts of olive wood closed the holy place from the porch. A veil probably covered this door in Herod's temple. Inside the holy place, just in front of the veil screening the entrance of the holy of holies, stood the altar of incense; along the north wall stood the table of the shewbread, and the ten lamp-stands, five on the right side and five on the left, which seem to have superseded the seven-branched lamp-stand of the Tabernacle. It was in the holy place that the angel appeared to Zachary and told of the birth of John the Baptist (Luke 1).

On the north side of the altar of incense, that is, on the right hand of the priest as he entered, stood the table for the show-bread, Exodus 26:35 40:22,23 ; and on the south side of the Holy Place, the golden candlestick, Exodus 25:31-39 . In the Most Holy Place, into which only the high priest entered once a year, Hebrews 9:7 , was the ark, covered by the mercy-seat and the cherubim

Jehovah - This name, the Tetragrammaton of the Greeks, was held by the later Jews to be so sacred that it was never pronounced except by the high priest on the great Day of Atonement, when he entered into the most Holy Place
Censer - (2) Prima facie, the author of Hebrews has fallen into error in naming this altar among the furnishings of the most Holy Place. He may be supposed to have been misled (a) by the ambiguous instructions regarding it given in Exodus 30:6 : ‘thou shall put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy-scat that is over the testimony’; (b) by its designation as ἅγιον τῶν ἁγίων in Exodus 30:10; and (c) especially by the fact that in Exodus 25:23-40; Exodus 26:35, only the candlestick and the table are mentioned as standing in the Holy Place
Shewbread (2) - SHEWBREAD, ‘bread of the face or presence’ (lehem pânîm), was placed on a special table in the Holy Place, in the presence of God. The statement is in accord with the Jewish law of His day, which can be traced back to a provision of the Priests’ Code from post-exilic times (Leviticus 24:9), which says that the shewbread was for the priests, and must be eaten by them in the Holy Place
Living - -(4) Figuratively, the expression is applied to the oracles given by God to Moses (Acts 7:38, Authorized Version ‘lively’); to the word of God generally (Hebrews 4:12, Authorized Version ‘quick’); to the way into the Holy Place which Jesus dedicated for us (Hebrews 10:20); to the hope unto which God has begotten us by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3, Authorized Version ‘lively’); to the Stone rejected of men but with God elect, precious (1 Peter 2:4), and the stones built up on that foundation into a spiritual house (1 Peter 2:5, Authorized Version ‘lively’); to the fountains of waters to which the Lamb shall lead His people (Revelation 7:17 TR Holiness, Holy, Holily - ...
The adjective is also used of the outer part of the tabernacle, Hebrews 9:2 (RV, "the Holy Place"); of the inner sanctuary, Hebrews 9:3 , RV, "the Holy of Holies;" Hebrews 9:24 , "a Holy Place," RV; Hebrews 9:25 (plural), of the presence of God in heaven, where there are not two compartments as in the Tabernacle, all being "the Holy Place;" Hebrews 9:8,12 (neuter plural); Hebrews 10:19 , "the Holy Place," RV (AV, "the holiest," neut
Tabernacle - The holiest place, a square of ten cubits in the tabernacle (according to inference), was 20 cubits in the temple; the Holy Place in each case was a corresponding double square. The porch, five cubits deep in the tabernacle, was ten cubits in the temple; the side spaces, taking account of the thickness of the temple walls, were five cubits and ten cubits wide respectively; the tabernacle ridge pole was 15 cubits high, that of the temple roof (the Holy Place) was 30 cubits (1 Kings 6:2). 3:6, section 4) confirms the view, making the tabernacle consist of three parts: the holiest, the Holy Place, the entrance with its five pillars, the front being "like a gable and a porch. The separation of the church from the world is marked by the exclusion of any but priests from the Holy Place, and of the people from the congregation while unclean; the need of holiness by the various purifications (compare Psalm 24). As the court represents the Jewish dispensation, so the Holy Place the Christian and the holiest place the glorified church. The church having passed through the outer court, where atonement has been once for all made, ministers in the Holy Place, as consisting of king priests (1 Peter 2:5; 1 Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6; Revelation 5:10) without earthly mediator, with prayer, praise, and the light of good works; and has access in spirit already (Hebrews 10:19), and in body finally, into the heavenly holiest. ...
In another point of view the court is the body, the Holy Place the soul, the holiest the spirit

The priests were chosen to officiate at the Holy Place of the tabernacle/temple. His name is “Holy”: “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and Holy Place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones” ( Holy Place” ( Zacharias - While Zacharias ministered at the golden altar of incense in the Holy Place, it was announced to him by the angel Gabriel that his wife Elisabeth, who was also of a priestly family, now stricken in years, would give birth to a son who was to be called John, and that he would be the forerunner of the long-expected Messiah (Luke 1:12-17 )

Temple - The anterior chamher, termed the hçkâl , and corresponding to the Holy Place in the Tabernacle, measured 40 cubits by 20, being twice as large as the inner chamber, the dĕbîr (EV [7] ‘ oracle ’) or most Holy Place , which was only 20 cubits by 20 ( 1 Kings 6:20 ). The latter in fact formed a perfect cube, since its height was also 20 cubits, as compared with that of ‘the Holy Place,’ which was 30 cubits ( 1 Kings 6:2 ). , while the dimensions of ‘the Holy Place’ will be approximately 70 by 35 by 50 ft. in height, and those of ‘the most Holy Place’ 35 by 35 by 35 ft. that of the ‘holy’ and ‘most Holy Place’ respectively. ...
The inner chamber of the Temple was separated from ‘the Holy Place,’ as has already been shown, by a partition wall, presumably of stone, which we have assumed above to have been a cubit in thickness.

Tabernacle - Since the tents of the Hebrew tribes, those of the priests and Levites, and the three divisions of the sanctuary court, Holy Place, and the holy of holies represent ascending degrees of holiness in the scheme of the Priestly writer, the appropriate order of study will be from without inwards, from the perimeter of the sanctuary to its centre. The larger of the two divisions of the dwelling is named the Holy Place , the smaller the holy of holies or most Holy Place. From the measurements given above, it will be seen that the most Holy Place the true presence-chamber of the Most High, to which the Holy Place forms the antechamber has the form of a perfect cube, 10 cubits (about 15 ft. Coming now to the furniture of the dwelling, and proceeding as before from without inwards, we find the Holy Place provided with three articles of furniture: ( a ) the table of shewbread, or, more precisely, presence-bread ( Exodus 25:23-30 , Exodus 37:10-16 ); ( b ) the so-called golden candlestick, in reality a seven-branched lampstand ( Exodus 25:31-40 , Exodus 37:17-24 ) ( c ) the altar of incense ( Exodus 30:1-7 , Exodus 37:25-28 ). The golden lampstand stood on the south side of the Holy Place, facing the table of shewbread on the north side. Its place is in front of the veil separating the holy from the most Holy Place. In the most Holy Place are placed two distinct yet connected sacred objects, the ark and the propitiatory or mercy-seat ( Exodus 25:10-22 , Exodus 25:38 )

Heaven - Admitting the whole tabernacle, therefore, in which the worship of God was performed according to a ritual of divine appointment, to be a representation of the universe, we are taught by it this beautiful lesson, that the whole universe is the temple of God; but that in this vast temple there is "a most Holy Place," where the Deity resides and manifests his presence to the angelic hosts and redeemed company who surround him. For that God resides in a particular part of the universe, where he makes his presence known to his intelligent creatures by some transcendent, visible glory, is an opinion that has prevailed among Jews and Christians, Greeks and Romans, yea, in every nation, civilized or savage, and in every age; and, since it is confirmed by revelation, why should it be doubted? Into this most Holy Place, the habitation of the Deity, Jesus, after his resurrection, ascended; and there, presenting his crucified body before the manifestation of the divine presence, which is called "the throne of the Majesty in the heavens," he offered unto God the sacrifice of himself, and made atonement for the sins of his people

In the Holy Place, besides the altar of incense, which was made of cedar overlaid with gold there were seven golden candlesticks in stead of one, and the table of shew-bread was replaced by ten golden tables, bearing, besides the shew bread, the innumerable golden vessels for the service of the sanctuary.

Bread - SHEW BREAD, or, according to the Hebrews, the bread of faces, was bread offered every Sabbath day upon the golden table in the Holy Place, Exodus 25:30 . Since part of the frankincense put upon the bread was to be burnt on the altar for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the Lord; and since Aaron and his sons were to eat it in the Holy Place, Leviticus 24:5-9 , it is probable that this bread typified Christ, first presented as a sacrifice to Jehovah, and then becoming spiritual food to such as in and through him are spiritual priests to God, even his Father, Revelation 1:6 ; Revelation 5:10 ; Revelation 20:6 ; 1 Peter 2:5
