So Moses summoned Bezalel and Oholiab and all the others who were specially gifted by the LORD and were eager to get to work.
Moses gave them the materials donated by the people of Israel as sacred offerings for the completion of the sanctuary. But the people continued to bring additional gifts each morning.
Finally the craftsmen who were working on the sanctuary left their work.
They went to Moses and reported, “The people have given more than enough materials to complete the job the LORD has commanded us to do!”
So Moses gave the command, and this message was sent throughout the camp: “Men and women, don’t prepare any more gifts for the sanctuary. We have enough!” So the people stopped bringing their sacred offerings.
Their contributions were more than enough to complete the whole project.
The skilled craftsmen made ten curtains of finely woven linen for the Tabernacle. Then Bezalel decorated the curtains with blue, purple, and scarlet thread and with skillfully embroidered cherubim.
All ten curtains were exactly the same size—42 feet long and 6 feet wide.
Five of these curtains were joined together to make one long curtain, and the other five were joined to make a second long curtain.
He made fifty loops of blue yarn and put them along the edge of the last curtain in each set.
The fifty loops along the edge of one curtain matched the fifty loops along the edge of the other curtain.
