Exodus 26:14  (King James Version)
And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering above of badgers' skins.

a covering
36:19 Numbers 4:5 ; Psalms 27:5 ; Psalms 121:4 Psalms 121:5 Isaiah 4:6 ; 25:4

rams' skins dyed red
{Oroth ailim meoddamim,} literally, the skins of red rams. It is a fact, attested by many respectable travellers, that in the Levant, sheep are often met with having red or violet coloured fleeces. Almost all ancient writers speak of the same thing.
25:5 Exodus 35:7 Exodus 35:23 39:34 Numbers 4:10 ; Ezekiel 16:10

badgers' skins
{Oroth techashim,} which nearly all the ancient versions have taken to be the name of a colour, though they differ very much with regard to the particular colour intended: the LXX., Vulgate, and Coptic, have skins dyed of a violet colour; the Syriac, azure; and the Arabic, black; and Bochart contends for the hysginus, a very deep blue. It may, however, denote an animal; for Dr. Geddes remarks, had the sacred writer meant to express only a variety of colour, he would hardly have repeated {roth,} skins, after {meoddamim,} red, in ch. 25:5 .
