Exodus 26

VIN(i) 1 "Construct the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen and blue and purple and scarlet material. Make them with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman. 2 Every curtain is to be twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure. 3 And five curtains shall be joined, each to its sister-piece. 4 And you will make loops of blue on the edge of the one curtain, at the end in the set; and you will do so on the edge of the end curtain in the second set. 5 Fifty twists on one curtain and fifty on the other, the twists to be opposite one another. 6 »Make fifty gold fasteners. Use them to link the two sets of curtains together so that the tent is a single unit. 7 And work curtains of goats for a tent on the tabernacle; work eleven curtains: 8 "Each of the eleven curtains will be forty-five feet long and six feet wide. 9 »Sew five of the curtains together into one set. Sew the remaining six into another set. Fold the sixth curtains in half to hang in front of the tent. 10 You shall make 50 loops along the edge of the outermost curtain in the first set, and 50 loops along the edge of the curtain of the other set. 11 Then make fifty brass hooks and put the hooks into the twists, joining the tent together to make it one. 12 As for the excess that remains of the curtains of the tent the half curtain that remains shall hang over the back of the tabernacle. 13 The nine inches that remain on either end of the length of the curtains of the tent shall hang over each side of the tabernacle to cover it. 14 And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams skins dyed red, and a covering of sealskins above. 15 "You shall make upright boards of acacia wood for the tabernacle. 16 Every board is to be ten cubits high and a cubit and a half wide. 17 »It should have two identical pegs. Make all the frames for the inner tent the same way. 18 "Make twenty frames for the south side of the inner tent. 19 And forty silver bases thou shalt make under the twenty boards: two bases for the one board for its two hands. 20 For the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, twenty boards, 21 With their forty silver bases, two under every board. 22 "Prepare six frames for the far end, the west side. 23 And you will make two frames for the tabernacle corners at the rear. 24 The two are to be joined together at the base and at the top to one ring, forming the two angles. 25 »There will be eight frames with sixteen silver sockets, two at the bottom of each frame. 26 "You shall make bars of acacia wood, five for the boards on one side of the tabernacle, 27 "Also prepare five for those on the other side, and five for the frames on the far end of the inner tent, the west side. 28 "The middle crossbar will run from one end to the other. It should be halfway up the frames. 29 "Cover the frames with gold. Make gold rings to hold the crossbars. Cover the crossbars with gold. 30 And you shall set up the tabernacle according to the pattern shown to you on the mount. 31 “You shall make a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cherubim. It shall be the work of a skillful workman. 32 Hanging it by gold hooks from four pillars of wood, plated with gold and fixed in silver bases. 33 You shall hang the curtain from the clasps and bring the Ark of the Testimony there inside the curtain. The curtain shall separate for you the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place. 34 And you will put the atonement cover on the ark of the testimony in the most holy place. 35 You shall put the table outside the curtain. You shall put the table on the north side with the lamp stand opposite the table on the south side of the tabernacle. 36 For the doorway of the tent you shall make a screen of blue, purple, and scarlet material, and fine woven linen, the work of an embroiderer. 37 And make five pillars for the curtain, of hard wood plated with gold; their hooks are to be of gold and their bases of brass
