The tent of the Presence.  Ex.26.1-37 - Ex.36.8-38

1Make 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. 2The length of each hanging shall be twenty-eight cubits and the breadth four cubits; all are to be of the same size. 3Five of the hangings shall be joined together, and similarly the other five. 4Make violet loops along the edge of the last hanging in each set, 5fifty for each set ; they must be opposite one another. 6Make fifty gold fasteners, join the hangings one to another with them, and the Tabernacle will be a single whole.

7Make hangings of goats' hair, eleven in all, to form a tent over the Tabernacle; 8each hanging is to be thirty cubits long and four wide; all eleven are to be of the same size. 9Join five of the hangings together, and similarly the other six; then fold the sixth hanging double at the front of the tent. 10Make 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. 11Make 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. 12The 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. 13On 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. 14Make for the tent a cover of tanned rams' skins and an outer covering of porpoise-hides.

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

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

31Make a Veil of finely woven linen and violet, purple, and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked on it, all made by a seamster. 32Fasten it with hooks of gold to four posts of acacia-wood overlaid with gold, standing in four silver sockets. 33Hang 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. 34Place the cover over the Ark of the Tokens in the Holy of Holies. 35Put 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. 36For the entrance of the tent make a screen of finely woven linen, embroidered with violet, purple, and scarlet. 37Make 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.
