Seeing as the Paroches was vertical, why does the Torah refer to it as "Paroches ha'Masach"?


Rashi: Because it separated the Kodesh Kodshim from the Kodesh, and whatever serves as a protection, whether from above or to the side, is called a 'Masach'. 1


As we find in Iyov, 1:10 and in Hoshe'a,2:8 (Rashi).
