1 Make the Tabernacle of ten hangings of finely woven linen, and violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked on them, all made by a seamster.

The tent of the Presence. Ex.26.1-37 - Ex.36.8-38
2 The length of each hanging shall be twenty-eight cubits and the breadth four cubits; all are to be of the same size.  
3 Five of the hangings shall be joined together, and similarly the other five.  
4 Make violet loops along the edge of the last hanging in each set,  
5 fifty for each set ; they must be opposite one another.  
6 Make fifty gold fasteners, join the hangings one to another with them, and the Tabernacle will be a single whole.

7 Make hangings of goats' hair, eleven in all, to form a tent over the Tabernacle;  
8 each hanging is to be thirty cubits long and four wide; all eleven are to be of the same size.  
9 Join five of the hangings together, and similarly the other six; then fold the sixth hanging double at the front of the tent.  
10 Make fifty loops on the edge of the last hanging in the first set and make fifty loops on the joining edge of the second set.  
11 Make fifty bronze Or copper and so throughout the description of the Tabernacle fasteners, insert them into the loops and join up the tent to make it a single whole.

12 The additional length of the tent hanging prob. rdg, Heb adds half the hanging which remains over is to fall over the back of the Tabernacle.

13 On each side there will be an additional cubit in the length of the tent hangings; this shall fall over the two sides of the Tabernacle to cover it.  
14 Make for the tent a cover of tanned rams' skins and an outer covering of porpoise-hides.

15 Make for the Tabernacle planks of acacia-wood as uprights,  
16 each plank ten cubits long and a cubit and a half wide,  
17 and two tenons for each plank joined to each other. You shall do the same for all the planks of the Tabernacle.  
18 Arrange the planks thus: twenty planks for the south side, facing southwards,  
19 with forty silver sockets under them, two sockets under each plank for its two tenons;  
20 and for the second or northern side of the Tabernacle, twenty planks,  
21 with forty silver sockets, two under each plank.  
22 Make six planks for the far end of the Tabernacle on the west.  
23 Make two planks for the corners of the Tabernacle at the far end;  
24 at the bottom they shall be alike, and at the top, both alike, they shall fit into a single ring. Do the same for both of them; they shall be for the two corners.  
25 There shall be eight planks with their silver sockets, sixteen sockets in all, two sockets under each plank severally.

26 Make bars of acacia-wood: five for the planks on the one side of the Tabernacle,  
27 five for the planks on the other side and five for the planks on the far end of the Tabernacle on the west.  
28 The middle bar is to run along from end to end half-way up the planks.  
29 Overlay the planks with gold, make rings of gold on them to hold the bars, and plate the bars with gold.  
30 Set up the Tabernacle according to the design you were shown on the mountain.

31 Make a Veil of finely woven linen and violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked on it, all made by a seamster.  
32 Fasten it with hooks of gold to four posts of acacia-wood overlaid with gold, standing in four silver sockets.  
33 Hang the Veil below the fasteners and bring the Ark of the Tokens inside the Veil. Thus the Veil will make a clear separation for you between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.  
34 Place the cover over the Ark of the Tokens in the Holy of Holies.  
35 Put the table outside the Veil and the lamp-stand at the south side of the Tabernacle, opposite the table which you shall put at the north side.  
36 For the entrance of the tent make a screen of finely woven linen, embroidered with violet, purple, and scarlet.

37 Make five posts of acacia-wood for the screen and overlay them with gold; make golden hooks for them and cast five bronze sockets for them.
