| 1 And Bezalel and Oholiab shall work, and every wise-hearted man, in
whom Jehovah hath put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all the
work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that Jehovah hath
2 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab, and every wise-hearted man, in
whose heart Jehovah had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up
to come unto the work to do it: 3 and they received of Moses all the
offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service
of the sanctuary, wherewith to make it. And they brought yet unto him
freewill-offerings every morning. 4 And all the wise men, that wrought all
the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they wrought.
5 And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than
enough for the service of the work which Jehovah commanded to make. 6 And
Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the
camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering
of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. 7 For the
stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
8 And all the wise-hearted men among them that wrought the work made the
tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and
scarlet, with cherubim, the work of the skilful workman, Bezalel made
them. 9 The length of each curtain was eight and twenty cubits, and the
breadth of each curtain four cubits: all the curtains had one measure.
10 And he coupled five curtains one to another: and the other five
curtains he coupled one to another. 11 And he made loops of blue upon the
edge of the one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made
in the edge of the curtain that was outmost in the second coupling.
12 Fifty loops made he in the one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the
edge of the curtain that was in the second coupling: the loops were opposite
one to another. 13 And he made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled the
curtains one to another with the clasps: so the tabernacle was one.
14 And he made curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the
tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them. 15 The length of each curtain
was thirty cubits, and four cubits the breadth of each curtain: the eleven
curtains had one measure. 16 And he coupled five curtains by themselves,
and six curtains by themselves. 17 And he made fifty loops on the edge of
the curtain that was outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon
the edge of the curtain which was outmost in the second coupling.
18 And he made fifty clasps of brass to couple the tent together, that it
might be one. 19 And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed
red, and a covering of sealskins above.
20 And he made the boards for the tabernacle, of acacia wood, standing up.
21 Ten cubits was the length of a board, and a cubit and a half the
breadth of each board. 22 Each board had two tenons, joined one to
another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle. 23 And he
made the boards for the tabernacle: twenty boards for the south side
southward. 24 And he made forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards;
two sockets under one board for its two tenons, and two sockets under another
board for its two tenons. 25 And for the second side of the tabernacle, on
the north side, he made twenty boards, 26 and their forty sockets of
silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.
27 And for the hinder part of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.
28 And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the hinder
part. 29 And they were double beneath; and in like manner they were entire
unto the top thereof unto one ring: thus he did to both of them in the two
corners. 30 And there were eight boards, and their sockets of silver,
sixteen sockets; under every board two sockets.
31 And he made bars of acacia wood; five for the boards of the one side of
the tabernacle, 32 and five bars for the boards of the other side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the hinder
part westward. 33 And he made the middle bar to pass through in the midst
of the boards from the one end to the other. 34 And he overlaid the boards
with gold, and made their rings of gold for places for the bars, and overlaid
the bars with gold.
35 And he made the veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined
linen: with cherubim, the work of the skilful workman, made he it. 36 And
he made thereunto four pillars of acacia, and overlaid them with gold: their
hooks were of gold; And he cast for them four sockets of silver. 37 And he
made a screen for the door of the Tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine twined linen, the work of the embroiderer; 38 and the five pillars of
it with their hooks: and he overlaid their capitals and their fillets with
gold; and their five sockets were of brass.
