1 "Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet stuff; with cherubim skilfully worked shall you make 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 shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall have one measure. 2 All the curtains are to be the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.
3 Five curtains shall be coupled to one another; and the other five curtains shall be coupled to one another. 3 Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five.
4 And you shall make loops of blue on the edge of the outmost curtain in the first set; and likewise you shall make loops on the edge of the outmost 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 Fifty loops you shall make on the one curtain, and fifty loops you shall make on the edge of the curtain that is in the second set; the loops shall 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 And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains one to the other with the clasps, that the tabernacle may be one whole. 6 Then make fifty gold clasps and use them to fasten the curtains together so that the tabernacle is a unit.
7 "You shall also make curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the tabernacle; eleven curtains shall you make. 7 "Make curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle--eleven altogether.

9 And you shall couple five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves, and the sixth curtain you shall double over 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 And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outmost in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain which is outmost 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 "And you shall make fifty clasps of bronze, and put the clasps into the loops, and couple the tent together that it may be one whole. 11 Then make fifty bronze clasps and put them in the loops to fasten the tent together as a unit.
12 And the part that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall 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 cubit on the one side, and the cubit on the other side, of what remains in the length of the curtains of the tent shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and that 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.

17 There shall be two tenons in each frame, for fitting together; so shall you do for all the frames of the tabernacle. 17 with two projections set parallel to each other. Make all the frames of the tabernacle in this way.
18 You shall make the frames for the tabernacle: twenty frames for the south side; 18 Make twenty frames for the south side of the tabernacle
