Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Bezalel, Oholiab, and all the skilled people are to work based on everything the Lord has commanded. The Lord has given them wisdom and understanding to know how to do all the work of constructing the sanctuary." 1 So Bezalel, Oholiab and every skilled person to whom the LORD has given skill and ability to know how to carry out all the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the LORD has commanded."
2 So Moses summoned Bezalel, Oholiab, and every skilled person in whose heart the Lord had placed wisdom, everyone whose heart moved him, to come to the work and do it. 2 Then Moses summoned Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person to whom the LORD had given ability and who was willing to come and do the work.
3 They took from Moses' presence all the contributions that the Israelites had brought for the task of making the sanctuary. Meanwhile, the people continued to bring freewill offerings morning after morning. 3 They received from Moses all the offerings the Israelites had brought to carry out the work of constructing the sanctuary. And the people continued to bring freewill offerings morning after morning.
4 Then all the craftsmen who were doing all the work for the sanctuary came one by one from the work they were doing 4 So all the skilled craftsmen who were doing all the work on the sanctuary left their work
5 and said to Moses, "The people are bringing more than is needed for the construction of the work the Lord commanded to be done." 5 and said to Moses, "The people are bringing more than enough for doing the work the LORD commanded to be done."
6 After Moses gave an order, they sent a proclamation throughout the camp: "Let no man or woman make anything else as an offering for the sanctuary." So the people stopped. 6 Then Moses gave an order and they sent this word throughout the camp: "No man or woman is to make anything else as an offering for the sanctuary." And so the people were restrained from bringing more,
7 The materials were sufficient for them to do all the work. There was more than enough. 7 because what they already had was more than enough to do all the work.
8 All the skilled craftsmen among those doing the work made the tabernacle with 10 curtains. Bezalel made them of finely spun linen, as well as blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, with a design of cherubim worked into them. 8 All the skilled men among the workmen made the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked into them by a skilled craftsman.
9 The length of each curtain was 42 feet, and the width of each curtain six feet; all the curtains had the same measurements. 9 All the curtains were the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.
10 He joined five of the curtains to each other, and the [other] five curtains he joined to each other. 10 They joined five of the curtains together and did the same with the other five.
11 He made loops of blue yarn on the edge of the last curtain in the first set and did the same on the edge of the outermost curtain in the second set. 11 Then they made loops of blue material along the edge of the end curtain in one set, and the same was done with the end curtain in the other set.
12 He made 50 loops on the one curtain and 50 loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set, so that the loops lined up with each other. 12 They also made fifty loops on one curtain and fifty loops on the end curtain of the other set, with the loops opposite each other.
13 He also made 50 gold clasps and joined the curtains to each other, so that the tabernacle became a single unit. 13 Then they made fifty gold clasps and used them to fasten the two sets of curtains together so that the tabernacle was a unit.
14 He made curtains of goat hair for a tent over the tabernacle; he also made 11 of them. 14 They made curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle--eleven altogether.
15 The length of each curtain was 45 feet, and the width of each curtain six feet. All 11 curtains had the same measurements. 15 All eleven curtains were the same size--thirty cubits long and four cubits wide.
16 He joined five of the curtains together, and [the other] six together. 16 They joined five of the curtains into one set and the other six into another set.
17 He made 50 loops on the edge of the outermost curtain in the [first] set and 50 loops on the edge of the [corresponding] curtain in the second set. 17 Then they made 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.
18 He made 50 bronze clasps to join the tent together as a single unit. 18 They made fifty bronze clasps to fasten the tent together as a unit.
19 He also made a covering for the tent from ram skins dyed red and a covering of manatee skins on top of it. 19 Then they made for the tent a covering of ram skins dyed red, and over that a covering of hides of sea cows.
20 He made upright planks of acacia wood for the tabernacle. 20 They made upright frames of acacia wood for the tabernacle.
21 The length of each plank was 15 feet, and the width of each was 27 inches. 21 Each frame was ten cubits long and a cubit and a half wide,
22 There were two tenons connected to each other for each plank. He did the same for all the planks of the tabernacle. 22 with two projections set parallel to each other. They made all the frames of the tabernacle in this way.
23 He made planks for the tabernacle as follows: 20 for the south side, 23 They made twenty frames for the south side of the tabernacle
24 and he made 40 silver bases to put under the 20 planks, two bases under the first plank for its two tenons, and two bases under each of the following planks for their two tenons; 24 and made forty silver bases to go under them--two bases for each frame, one under each projection.
25 for the second side of the tabernacle, the north side, he made 20 planks, 25 For the other side, the north side of the tabernacle, they made twenty frames
26 with their 40 silver bases, two bases under the first plank and two bases under each of the following ones; 26 and forty silver bases--two under each frame.
27 and for the west side of the tabernacle he made six planks. 27 They made six frames for the far end, that is, the west end of the tabernacle,
28 He also made two additional planks for the two back corners of the tabernacle. 28 and two frames were made for the corners of the tabernacle at the far end.
29 They were paired at the bottom and joined together at the top in a single ring. This is what he did with both of them for the two corners. 29 At these two corners the frames were double from the bottom all the way to the top and fitted into a single ring; both were made alike.
30 So there were eight planks with their 16 silver bases, two bases under each one. 30 So there were eight frames and sixteen silver bases--two under each frame.
31 He made five crossbars of acacia wood for the planks on one side of the tabernacle, 31 They also made crossbars of acacia wood: five for the frames on one side of the tabernacle,
32 five crossbars for the planks on the other side of the tabernacle, and five crossbars for those at the back of the tabernacle on the west. 32 five for those on the other side, and five for the frames on the west, at the far end of the tabernacle.
33 He made the central crossbar run through the middle of the planks from one end to the other. 33 They made the center crossbar so that it extended from end to end at the middle of the frames.
34 He overlaid them with gold and made their rings and holders for the crossbars out of gold. He also overlaid the crossbars with gold. 34 They overlaid the frames with gold and made gold rings to hold the crossbars. They also overlaid the crossbars with gold.
35 Then he made the veil with blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and finely spun linen. He made it with a design of cherubim worked into it. 35 They made the curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen, with cherubim worked into it by a skilled craftsman.
36 For it he made four posts of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold; their hooks were of gold. And he cast four silver bases for the posts. 36 They made four posts of acacia wood for it and overlaid them with gold. They made gold hooks for them and cast their four silver bases.
37 He made a screen embroidered with blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and finely spun linen for the entrance to the tent, 37 For the entrance to the tent they made a curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen--the work of an embroiderer;
38 together with its five posts and their hooks. He overlaid the tops of the posts and their bands with gold, but their five bases were bronze. 38 and they made five posts with hooks for them. They overlaid the tops of the posts and their bands with gold and made their five bases of bronze.
