GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 [The LORD continued,] "Make the inner tent with ten sheets made from fine linen yarn. Take violet, purple, and bright red yarn, and creatively work an angel design into the fabric. 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 sheet will be 42 feet long and 6 feet wide--all the same size. 2 All the curtains are to be the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.
3 Five of the sheets must be sewn together, and the other five must also be sewn together. 3 Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five.
4 Make 50 violet loops along the edge of the end sheet in each 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 placing the loops opposite each other. 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 50 gold fasteners. Use them to link the [two sets of] sheets together so that the tent is 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 "Make 11 sheets of goats' hair to form an outer tent over the inner tent. 7 "Make curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle--eleven altogether.
8 Each of the 11 sheets will be 45 feet long and 6 feet wide. 8 All eleven curtains are to be the same size--thirty cubits long and four cubits wide.
9 Sew five of the sheets together into one set and the remaining six into another set. Fold the sixth sheet in half [to hang] in 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 along the edge of the end sheet in each 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 fasteners, and put them through the loops to link the inner tent together as a single unit. 11 Then make fifty bronze clasps and put them in the loops to fasten the tent together as a unit.
12 The remaining half-sheet should hang over the back of the inner tent. 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 There will be 18 inches left over on each side because of the length of the outer tent's sheets. That part should hang over each side in order to cover the inner tent. 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 cover of rams' skins that have been dyed red for the outer tent. Over that put a cover made 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 a framework out of acacia wood for the inner tent. 15 "Make upright frames of acacia wood for the tabernacle.
16 Each frame is to be 15 feet long and 27 inches wide, 16 Each frame is to be ten cubits long and a cubit and a half wide,
17 with two identical pegs. Make all the frames for the inner tent the same way. 17 with two projections set parallel to each other. Make all the frames of the tabernacle in this way.
18 Make 20 frames for the south side of the inner tent. 18 Make twenty frames for the south side of the tabernacle
19 Then make 40 silver sockets at the bottom of the 20 frames, two sockets at the bottom of each frame for the two pegs. 19 and make forty silver bases to go under them--two bases for each frame, one under each projection.
20 For the north side of the inner tent [make] 20 frames 20 For the other side, the north side of the tabernacle, make twenty frames
21 and 40 silver sockets, two at the bottom of each frame. 21 and forty silver bases--two under each frame.
22 Make six frames for the far end, the west side. 22 Make six frames for the far end, that is, the west end of the tabernacle,
23 Make two frames for [each of] the corners at the far end of the inner tent. 23 and make two frames for the corners at the far end.
24 These will be held together at the bottom and held tightly at the top by a single ring. Both corner frames will be made this way. 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 will be eight frames with 16 silver sockets, two at the bottom of each frame. 25 So there will be eight frames and sixteen silver bases--two under each frame.
26 "Make crossbars out of acacia wood: five for the frames on one side of the inner tent, 26 "Also make crossbars of acacia wood: five for the frames on one side of the tabernacle,
27 five for those on the other side, and five for the frames on the far end of the inner tent, the west side. 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 will run from one end to the other, halfway up the frames. 28 The center crossbar is to extend from end to end at the middle of the frames.
29 Cover the frames with gold, make gold rings to hold the crossbars, and cover the crossbars with gold. 29 Overlay the frames with gold and make gold rings to hold the crossbars. Also overlay the crossbars with gold.

33 Hang the canopy from the fasteners in the ceiling, and put the ark containing the words of my promise under it. The canopy will mark off the most holy place from the 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 throne of mercy that is on the ark in the most holy place. 34 Put the atonement cover on the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy Place.
