We are described by the apostle Paul to be temples of the Holy Spirit, and interestingly, Psalm 139:15 likens us being put together in the same verb that is only used elsewhere to refer to the decorated embroidery on the various items in the Tent of the Lord’s presence. This excerpt comes from the Handbook on the Psalms:
“TEV has rearranged the material in this verse for greater ease of understanding. “Carefully put together” (RSV intricately wrought) translates a verb that is used only eight other times, in Exodus, of the decorated embroidery of the various items in the Tent of the Lord’s Presence.”
