1 "You are to make the tabernacle with ten sheets of finely woven linen and with blue, purple and scarlet yarn. You are to make them with k'ruvim worked in, that have been crafted by a skilled artisan. 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 Each one is to be forty-two feet long and six feet wide; all the sheets are to be the same size. 2 All the curtains are to be the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.
3 Five sheets are to be joined one to another, and the other five sheets are to be joined one to another. 3 Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five.
4 Make loops of blue on the edge of the outermost sheet in the first set, and do the same on the edge of the outermost sheet 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 fifty loops on the one sheet, and make fifty loops on the edge of the sheet in the second set; the loops are to be opposite one another. 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 Make fifty fasteners of gold, and couple the sheets to each other with the fasteners, so that the tabernacle forms 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 sheets of goat's hair to be used as a tent covering the tabernacle; make eleven sheets. 7 "Make curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle--eleven altogether.
8 Each sheet is to be forty-five feet long and six feet wide -all eleven sheets are to be the same size. 8 All eleven curtains are to be the same size--thirty cubits long and four cubits wide.
9 Join five sheets together and six sheets together, and fold the sixth sheet 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 fifty loops on the edge of the outermost sheet in the first set and fifty loops on the edge of the outermost sheet in 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 fifty fasteners of bronze, put the fasteners in the loops, and join the tent together, so that it forms 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 overhanging part that remains of the sheets forming the tent, the half-sheet remaining is to hang 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 and the eighteen inches on the one side and the eighteen inches on the other side of that remaining in the length of the sheets forming the tent is to hang over the tabernacle to cover it on each side. 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 "You are to make a covering for the tent of tanned ram skins and an outer covering of fine leather. 14 Make for the tent a covering of ram skins dyed red, and over that a covering of hides of sea cows.
15 "Make the upright planks for the tabernacle out of acacia-wood. 15 "Make upright frames of acacia wood for the tabernacle.
16 Each plank is to be fifteen feet long and two-and-a-quarter feet wide. 16 Each frame is to be ten cubits long and a cubit and a half wide,
17 There are to be two projections on each plank, and the planks are to be joined one to another. That is how you are to make all the planks for 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: twenty planks for the south side, facing southward. 18 Make twenty frames for the south side of the tabernacle
19 Make forty silver sockets under the twenty planks, two sockets under one plank for its two projections and two sockets under another plank for its two projections. 19 and make forty silver bases to go under them--two bases for each frame, one under each projection.
20 "For the second side of the tabernacle, to the north, make twenty planks 20 For the other side, the north side of the tabernacle, make twenty frames
21 and their forty silver sockets, two sockets under one plank and two under another. 21 and forty silver bases--two under each frame.
22 "For the rear part of the tabernacle, toward the west, make six planks. 22 Make six frames for the far end, that is, the west end of the tabernacle,
23 For the corners of the tabernacle in the rear, make two planks; 23 and make two frames for the corners at the far end.
24 these are to be double from the bottom all the way to the top but joined at a single ring. Do the same with both of them; they are to form 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 Thus there will be eight planks with their silver sockets, sixteen sockets, two sockets under one plank and two under another. 25 So there will be eight frames and sixteen silver bases--two under each frame.
26 "Make crossbars of acacia-wood, five for the planks of the 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 of the other side of the tabernacle, and five crossbars for the planks at the side of the tabernacle at the rear toward 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 middle crossbar, halfway up the planks, is to extend from end to end. 28 The center crossbar is to extend from end to end at the middle of the frames.
29 Overlay the planks with gold, make gold rings for them through which the crossbars will pass, and 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 erect the tabernacle according to the design 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 curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely woven linen. Make it with k'ruvim worked in, that have been crafted by a skilled artisan. 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 with gold hooks on four acacia-wood posts overlaid with gold and standing in four silver sockets. 32 Hang it with gold hooks on four posts of acacia wood overlaid with gold and standing on four silver bases.
33 Hang the curtain below the fasteners. Then bring the ark for the testimony inside the curtain; the curtain will be the divider for you between the Holy Place and the Especially 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 You are to put the ark-cover on the ark for the testimony in the Especially Holy Place. 34 Put the atonement cover on the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy Place.
35 "You are to put the table outside the curtain and the menorah opposite the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south; 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, make a screen of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely woven linen; it should be in colors, the work of a weaver. 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 For the screen, make five posts of acacia-wood; overlay them with gold; and cast for them five sockets of bronze. 37 Make gold hooks for this curtain and five posts of acacia wood overlaid with gold. And cast five bronze bases for them.
