Exodus 26

“Make the tabernacle with ten
curtains of finely twisted
linen and blue, purple and
scarlet yarn, with cherubim
woven into them by a skilled
worker. All the curtains are
to be the same size—twenty-eight
cubits long and four cubits wide.

Join five of the curtains
together, and do the same
with the other five. 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. Make fifty loops
on one curtain and fifty
loops on the end curtain
of the other set, with the
loops opposite each other.
Then make fifty gold clasps
and use them to fasten the
curtains together so that
the tabernacle is a unit.
“Make curtains of goat hair
for the tent over the tabernacle
—eleven altogether. All
eleven curtains are to be
the same size—thirty cubits
long and four cubits wide.

Join five of the curtains
together into one set and
the other six into another set.
Fold the sixth curtain double
at the front of the tent.
Make fifty loops along the
edge of the end curtain in
one set and also along the
edge of the end curtain in
the other set. Then make
fifty bronze clasps and
put them in the loops to
fasten the tent together
as a unit. As for the
additional length of the
tent curtains, the half
curtain that is left over
is to hang down at the
rear of the tabernacle.
The tent curtains will be a
cubit longer on both sides;
what is left will hang over
the sides of the tabernacle
so as to cover it. Make for
the tent a covering of ram
skins dyed red, and over
that a covering of the
other durable leather.

“Make upright frames of
acacia wood for the tabernacle.
Each frame is to be ten
cubits long and a cubit
and a half wide,  with two
projections set parallel
to each other. Make all
the frames of the tabernacle
in this way. Make twenty frames
for the south side of the
tabernacle and make forty
silver bases to go under
them—two bases for each
frame, one under each projection.
For the other side,
the north side of the
tabernacle, make twenty
frames and forty silver
bases—two under each frame.
Make six frames for the
far end, that is, the
west end of the tabernacle,
and make two frames for
the corners at the far end.
At these two corners they
must be double from the 
bottom all the way to the
top and fitted into a single ring;
both shall be like that.
So there will be eight
frames and sixteen silver
bases—two under each frame.

“Also make crossbars of
acacia wood: five for the
frames on one side of the
tabernacle, five for those
on the other side, and five
for the frames on the west,
at the far end of the tabernacle.
The center crossbar is
to extend from end to end
at the middle of the frames.
Overlay the frames with gold
and make gold rings to hold
the crossbars. Also overlay
the crossbars with gold.

“Set up the tabernacle
according to the plan shown
you on the mountain.

“Make a curtain of blue,
purple and scarlet yarn and
finely twisted linen, with
cherubim woven into it by
a skilled worker. Hang it with
gold hooks on four posts of
acacia wood overlaid with
gold and standing on four
silver bases. Hang the
curtain from the clasps
and place the ark of the
covenant law behind the curtain.
The curtain will separate
the Holy Place from the
Most Holy Place. Put the
atonement cover on the
ark of the covenant law
in the Most Holy Place.
Place the table outside
the curtain on the north
side of the tabernacle and
put the lampstand opposite
it on the south side.

“For the entrance to the
tent make a curtain of blue,
purple and scarlet yarn
and finely twisted linen
—the work of an embroiderer.
Make gold hooks for this
curtain and five posts of
acacia wood overlaid with gold.
And cast five bronze bases for them.
