and they received from Moses all the freewill offerings that the Israelites had brought for doing the work on the sanctuary. They still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning,
so that all the artisans who were doing every sort of task on the sanctuary came, each from the task being performed,
and said to Moses, "The people are bringing much more than enough for doing the work that the Lord has commanded us to do."
So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp: "No man or woman is to make anything else as an offering for the sanctuary." So the people were restrained from bringing;
for what they had already brought was more than enough to do all the work.
All those with skill among the workers made the tabernacle with ten curtains; they were made of fine twisted linen, and blue, purple, and crimson yarns, with cherubim skillfully worked into them.
The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains were of the same size.
He joined five curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he joined to one another.
He made loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain of the first set; likewise he made them on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set;
he made fifty loops on the one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was in the second set; the loops were opposite one another.
And he made fifty clasps of gold, and joined the curtains one to the other with clasps; so the tabernacle was one whole.
