1 Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen, and blue, purple, and crimson yarns; you shall make them with cherubim skillfully 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 shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall be of the same size. 2 All the curtains are to be the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.
3 Five curtains shall be joined to one another; and the other five curtains shall be joined to one another. 3 Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five.
4 You shall make loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain in the first set; and likewise you shall make loops 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 You shall make fifty loops on the one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops 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 You shall make fifty clasps of gold, and join the curtains to one another with the clasps, so 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.
