Sanctuary
        denotes, (1) the Holy Land (Ex. 15:17; compare Ps. 114:2); (2) the
        temple (1 Chr. 22:19; 2 Chr. 29:21); (3) the tabernacle (Ex.
        25:8; Lev. 12:4; 21:12); (4) the holy place, the place of the
        Presence (Gr. hieron, the temple-house; not the "naos", which is
        the temple area, with its courts and porches), Lev. 4:6; Eph.
        2:21, R.V., marg.; (5) God's holy habitation in heaven (Ps.
        102:19). In the final state there is properly "no sanctuary"
        (Rev. 21:22), for God and the Lamb "are the sanctuary" (R.V.,
        "temple"). All is there hallowed by the Divine Presence; all is
        sancturary.
