linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet; with cherubs, work of a
designer, thou dost make them;

the cubit, and the breadth of the one curtain four by the cubit, one measure is
to all the curtains;

curtains are joining one to another.
'And thou hast made loops of blue upon the edge of the one
curtain, at the end in the joining; and so thou makest in the edge of the
outermost curtain, in the joining of the second.
fifty loops thou dost make in the one curtain, and fifty
loops thou dost make in the edge of the curtain which is in the joining
of the second, causing the loops to take hold one unto another;

curtains one to another by the hooks, and the tabernacle hath been one.
'And thou hast made curtains of goats' hair, for a
tent over the tabernacle; thou dost make eleven curtains:
the length of the one curtain is thirty by the cubit,

the eleven curtains;

the hooks into the loops, and hast joined the tent, and it hath been one.
'And the superfluity in the curtains of the tent -- the half
of the curtain which is superfluous -- hath spread over the hinder part of the

superfluity in the length of the curtains of the tent, is spread out over the
sides of the tabernacle, on this and on that, to cover it;

made red, and a covering of badgers' skins above.

shittim wood, standing up;
ten cubits is the length of the board, and a cubit

another; so thou dost make for all the boards of the tabernacle;
and thou hast made the boards of the tabernacle: twenty
boards for the south side southward;
and forty sockets of silver thou dost make under the twenty
boards, two sockets under the one board for its two handles, and two sockets
under the other board for its two handles.
'And for the second side of the tabernacle, for the north
side, are twenty boards,

board, and two sockets under another board.
And for the sides of the tabernacle westward, thou dost make

tabernacle in the two sides.
And they are pairs beneath, and together they are pairs

are sixteen sockets, two sockets under the one board, and two sockets

boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

rings thou dost make of gold places for bars, and hast overlaid their bars with

brought in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony; and the vail hath
made a separation for you between the holy and the holy of holies.
'And thou hast put the mercy-seat on the ark of the
testimony, in the holy of holies.
'And thou hast set the table at the outside of the vail, and
the candlestick over-against the table on the side of the tabernacle southward,
and the table thou dost put on the north side.

blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen, work of an embroiderer;
