1 "You are to construct the tabernacle itself with 10 curtains. You must make them of finely spun linen, and blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, with a design of cherubim worked into them. 1 "Make the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked into them by a skilled craftsman.
2 The length of each curtain should be 42 feet, and the width of each curtain six feet; all the curtains are to have the same measurements. 2 All the curtains are to be the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.
3 Five of the curtains should be joined together, and the [other] five curtains joined together. 3 Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five.
4 Make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the last curtain in the [first] set, and do the same on the edge of the outermost curtain in the second set. 4 Make loops of blue material along the edge of the end curtain in one set, and do the same with the end curtain in the other set.
5 Make 50 loops on the one curtain and make 50 loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set, so that the loops line up together. 5 Make fifty loops on one curtain and fifty loops on the end curtain of the other set, with the loops opposite each other.
6 Also make 50 gold clasps and join the curtains together with the clasps, so that the tabernacle may be a single unit. 6 Then make fifty gold clasps and use them to fasten the curtains together so that the tabernacle is a unit.
7 "You are to make curtains of goat hair for a tent over the tabernacle; make 11 of these curtains. 7 "Make curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle--eleven altogether.
8 The length of each curtain should be 45 feet and the width of each curtain six feet. All 11 curtains are to have the same measurements. 8 All eleven curtains are to be the same size--thirty cubits long and four cubits wide.
9 Join five of the curtains by themselves, and the [other] six curtains by themselves. Then fold the sixth curtain double at the front of the tent. 9 Join five of the curtains together into one set and the other six into another set. Fold the sixth curtain double at the front of the tent.
10 Make 50 loops on the edge of the one curtain, the outermost in the [first] set, and make 50 loops on the edge of the [corresponding] curtain of the second set. 10 Make fifty loops along the edge of the end curtain in one set and also along the edge of the end curtain in the other set.
11 Make 50 bronze clasps; put the clasps through the loops and join the tent together so that it is a single unit. 11 Then make fifty bronze clasps and put them in the loops to fasten the tent together as a unit.
12 As for the flap that is left over from the tent curtains, the leftover half curtain is to hang down over the back of the tabernacle. 12 As for the additional length of the tent curtains, the half curtain that is left over is to hang down at the rear of the tabernacle.
13 The half yard on one side and the half yard on the other of what is left over along the length of the tent curtains should be hanging down over the sides of the tabernacle on either side to cover it. 13 The tent curtains will be a cubit longer on both sides; what is left will hang over the sides of the tabernacle so as to cover it.
14 Make a covering for the tent from ram skins dyed red, and a covering of manatee skins on top of that. 14 Make for the tent a covering of ram skins dyed red, and over that a covering of hides of sea cows.
15 "You are to make upright planks of acacia wood for the tabernacle. 15 "Make upright frames of acacia wood for the tabernacle.
16 The length of each plank is to be 15 feet, and the width of each plank 27 inches. 16 Each frame is to be ten cubits long and a cubit and a half wide,
17 Each plank must be connected together with two tenons. Do the same for all the planks of the tabernacle. 17 with two projections set parallel to each other. Make all the frames of the tabernacle in this way.
18 Make the planks for the tabernacle as follows: 20 planks for the south side, 18 Make twenty frames for the south side of the tabernacle
19 and make 40 silver bases under the 20 planks, two bases under the first plank for its two tenons, and two bases under the next plank for its two tenons; 19 and make forty silver bases to go under them--two bases for each frame, one under each projection.
20 20 planks for the second side of the tabernacle, the north side, 20 For the other side, the north side of the tabernacle, make twenty frames
21 along with their 40 silver bases, two bases under the first plank and two bases under each plank; 21 and forty silver bases--two under each frame.
22 and make six planks for the west side of the tabernacle. 22 Make six frames for the far end, that is, the west end of the tabernacle,
23 Make two additional planks for the two back corners of the tabernacle. 23 and make two frames for the corners at the far end.
24 They are to be paired at the bottom, and joined together at the top in a single ring. So it should be for both of them; they will serve as the two corners. 24 At these two corners they must be double from the bottom all the way to the top, and fitted into a single ring; both shall be like that.
25 There are to be eight planks with their silver bases: 16 bases; two bases under the first plank and two bases under each plank. 25 So there will be eight frames and sixteen silver bases--two under each frame.
26 "You are to make five crossbars of acacia wood for the planks on one side of the tabernacle, 26 "Also make crossbars of acacia wood: five for the frames on one side of the tabernacle,
27 five crossbars for the planks on the other side of the tabernacle, and five crossbars for the planks of the back side of the tabernacle on the west. 27 five for those on the other side, and five for the frames on the west, at the far end of the tabernacle.
28 The central crossbar is to run through the middle of the planks from one end to the other. 28 The center crossbar is to extend from end to end at the middle of the frames.
29 Then overlay the planks with gold, and make their rings of gold as the holders for the crossbars. Also overlay the crossbars with gold. 29 Overlay the frames with gold and make gold rings to hold the crossbars. Also overlay the crossbars with gold.
30 You are to set up the tabernacle according to the plan for it that you have been shown on the mountain. 30 "Set up the tabernacle according to the plan shown you on the mountain.
31 "You are to make a veil of blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and finely spun linen with a design of cherubim worked into it. 31 "Make a curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen, with cherubim worked into it by a skilled craftsman.
32 Hang it on four gold-plated posts of acacia wood that have gold hooks [and that stand] on four silver bases. 32 Hang it with gold hooks on four posts of acacia wood overlaid with gold and standing on four silver bases.
33 Hang the veil under the clasps and bring the ark of the testimony there behind the veil, so the veil will make a separation for you between the holy place and the most holy place. 33 Hang the curtain from the clasps and place the ark of the Testimony behind the curtain. The curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.
34 Put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the most holy place. 34 Put the atonement cover on the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy Place.
35 Place the table outside the veil and the lampstand on the south side of the tabernacle, opposite the table; put the table on the north side. 35 Place the table outside the curtain on the north side of the tabernacle and put the lampstand opposite it on the south side.
36 "For the entrance to the tent you are to make a screen embroidered with blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and finely spun linen. 36 "For the entrance to the tent make a curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen--the work of an embroiderer.
37 Make five posts of acacia wood for the screen and overlay them with gold; their hooks are to be gold, and you are to cast five bronze bases for them. 37 Make gold hooks for this curtain and five posts of acacia wood overlaid with gold. And cast five bronze bases for them.
