1 Now the tabernacle you shall make with ten curtains of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet strands; you shall make them with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.
2 The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain, four cubits; all the curtains shall have the same measurement.
3 Five curtains shall be joined to one another; and the other five curtains shall be joined to one another.
4 And you shall make loops of blue strands on the edge of the one curtain at the end in the set; and likewise you shall make them in the edge of the outermost curtain in the second 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.
6 And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and join the curtains to one another with the clasps, so that the tabernacle may become one.
7 And you shall make curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle; eleven curtains you shall make.
8 The length of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain, four cubits; the eleven curtains shall have the same measurement.
9 And you shall join five of the curtains by themselves, and six of the curtains by themselves; and you shall double the sixth curtain over at the front of the tent.
10 And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the one curtain that is outermost in the set, and fifty loops upon the edge of the curtain which is outermost in the second set.
11 And you shall make fifty clasps of bronze and put the clasps into the loops and join the tent together, so that it may become one.
12 And the overlapping part that is left over of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that is left over, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle.
13 And the cubit on the one side and the cubit on the other side, of what is left over in the length of the curtains of the tent, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and on that side, to cover it.
14 And you shall make a covering for the tent, of rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering of porpoise skins above it.
15 And you shall make the boards for the tabernacle of acacia wood, standing up.
16 Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and one and a half cubits, the width of each board.
17 Each board shall have two tenons, parallel to each another; thus you shall do for all the boards of the tabernacle.
18 And you shall make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards for the south side southward.
19 And you shall make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards, two sockets under one board for its two tenons and two sockets under the next board for its two tenons.
20 And for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, twenty boards;
21 And their forty sockets of silver, two sockets under one board and two sockets under the next board.
