18 The curtain for the entrance to the courtyard was made of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen—the work of an embroiderer. It was twenty cubitsa long and, like the curtains of the courtyard, five cubitsb high,
19 with four posts and four bronze bases. Their hooks and bands were silver, and their tops were overlaid with silver.
20 All the tent pegs of the tabernacle and of the surrounding courtyard were bronze.

The Materials Used

21 These are the amounts of the materials used for the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the covenant law, which were recorded at Moses’ command by the Levites under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest.
22 (Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made everything the LORD commanded Moses;
23 with him was Oholiab son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan—an engraver and designer, and an embroiderer in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen.)
24 The total amount of the gold from the wave offering used for all the work on the sanctuary was 29 talents and 730 shekels,c according to the sanctuary shekel.
25 The silver obtained from those of the community who were counted in the census was 100 talentsd and 1,775 shekels,e according to the sanctuary shekel—
26 one beka per person, that is, half a shekel,f according to the sanctuary shekel, from everyone who had crossed over to those counted, twenty years old or more, a total of 603,550 men.
27 The 100 talents of silver were used to cast the bases for the sanctuary and for the curtain—100 bases from the 100 talents, one talent for each base.
28 They used the 1,775 shekels to make the hooks for the posts, to overlay the tops of the posts, and to make their bands.
