|70 talents and 2400 shekels|
A total of 212,400 shekels or 10,620 pounds, around 1/3 shekel for each person counted. However, some say that the talent used to measure the copper was larger than that used to measure precious metals (Saadia).
There were 60 bases for the sixty poles for the enclosure, and another five for the drape at the tabernacle's entrance. Some say that each base weighed one talent (Chizzkuni).
|and the stakes...|
Since the washstand is not mentioned, some say that the copper to make it was not included in this reckoning.
