It is Messiah who provides the wedding garment (Re 3: 18; 19: 8). badgers 'skin -- tahash; others translate, "seal skins."
Once the Tabernacle was completed, the tahash disappeared.
The third covering was of rams 'skins dyed red, and the fourth was of badgers' skins (Heb. tahash, i.e., the dugong, a species of seal), Ex. 25: 5; 26: 14; 35: 7, 23; 36: 19; 39: 34.
It was probably red morocco leather and "badgers 'skins," rather "the skins of the tahash, supposed to be the dugong, or dolphin of the Red Sea, the skin of which is still used by the Arabs under the same appellation"
On the whole, remarks the editor of Calmet, we may consider the Hebrew _tahash_ as being decidedly a seal; but tannin as including creatures resident both on land and in water, or, in other words, the amphibia. [
