The Tent Cloth. 1“The Dwelling itself you shall make out of sheets* woven of fine linen twined and of violet, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim embroidered on them. b 1–14: Ex 36, 8–19 . 2The length of each shall be twenty‐eight cubits, and the width four cubits; all the sheets shall be of the same size. 3Five of the sheets are to be sewed together, edge to edge; and the same for the other five. 4Makeloops of violet yarn along the edge of the end sheet in one set, and the same along the edge of the end sheet in the other set. 5There are to be fifty loops along the edge of the end sheet in the first set, and fifty loops along the edge of the corresponding sheet in the second set, and so placed that the loops are directly opposite each other. 6Then make fifty clasps of gold, with which to join the two sets of sheets, so that the Dwelling forms one whole.

7“Also make sheets woven of goat hair, to be used as a tent covering* over the Dwelling. 8Eleven such sheets are to be made; the length of each shall be thirty cubits, and the width four cubits: all eleven sheets shall be of the same size. 9Sew five of the sheets, edge to edge, into one set, and the other six sheets into another set. Use the sixth sheet double at the front of the tent.* 10Make fifty loops along the edge of the end sheet in one set, and fifty loops along the edge of the end sheet in the second set. 11Also make fifty bronze clasps and put them into the loops, to join the tent into one whole. 12There will be an extra half sheet of tent covering, which shall be allowed to hang down over the rear of the Dwelling. 13Likewise, the sheets of the tent will have an extra cubit's length to be left hanging down on either side of the Dwelling to protect it. 14Over the tent itself you shall make a covering of rams' skins dyed red, and above that, a covering of tahash skins.

The Wooden Walls. 15 c 15–30: Ex 36, 20–34 . “You shall make boards of acacia wood as walls for the Dwelling. 16The length of each board is to be ten cubits, and its width one and a half cubits. 17Each board shall have two arms* that shall serve to fasten the boards in line. In this way all the boards of the Dwelling are to be made. 18Set up the boards of the Dwelling as follows: twenty boards on the south side, 19with forty silver pedestals under the twenty boards, so that there are two pedestals under each board, at its two arms; 20twenty boards on the other side of the Dwelling, the north side, 21with their forty silver pedestals, two under each board; 22six boards for the rear of the Dwelling, to the west; 23and two boards for the corners at the rear of the Dwelling. 24These two shall be double at the bottom, and likewise double at the top, to the first ring. That is how both boards in the corners are to be made. 25Thus, there shall be in the rear eight boards, with their sixteen silver pedestals, two pedestals under each board. 26Also make bars of acacia wood: five for the boards on one side of the Dwelling, 27five for those on the other side, and five for those at the rear, toward the west. 28The center bar, at the middle of the boards, shall reach across from end to end. 29Plate the boards with gold, and make gold rings on them as holders for the bars, which are also to be plated with gold. 30You shall erect the Dwelling according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.

The Veils. 31“You shall have a veil woven of violet, purple and scarlet yarn, d 2 Chr 3, 14 . and of fine linen twined, with cherubim embroidered on it. e 31–37: Ex 36, 35–38 . 32It is to be hung on four gold‐plated columns of acacia wood, which shall have hooks* of gold and shall rest on four silver pedestals. 33Hang the veil from clasps. The ark of the commandments you shall bring inside, behind this veil which divides the holy place from the holy of holies. 34Set the propitiatory on the ark of the commandments in the holy of holies.

35“Outside the veil you shall place the table and the lampstand, the latter on the south side of the Dwelling, opposite the table, which is to be put on the north side. 36For the entrance of the tent make a variegated* curtain of violet, purple and scarlet yarn and of fine linen twined. 37Make five columns of acacia wood for this curtain;have them plated with gold, with their hooks of gold; and cast five bronze pedestals for them.
