|Exodus 36 |
1 Now Bezaleel and Aholiab and every wise hearted man in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary shall work according to all that the LORD has commanded."
2 Then Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab and every wise hearted man in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom and skill, everyone whose heart stirred him to come to do the work;
3 And they received from Moses all the offerings, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the making the sanctuary. And they continued to bring him freewill offerings every morning.
4 Then all the wise men who were doing the work of the sanctuary came, every man from the work that they were doing,
5 And they spoke to Moses, saying, "The people bring much more than enough for the work, which the LORD commanded to make."
6 So Moses commanded and it was proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, "Let no man or woman do any more work for the offering of the sanctuary." So the people were restrained from bringing more,
7 For the material they had was sufficient for all the work to be done, indeed too much.
8 Then all the skilled and wise hearted among those who did the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, purple, and scarlet, with cherubim skillfully worked into them.
9 The curtains were all of one size — twenty eight cubits long [42 ft] and four cubits [6 ft] wide.
10 Then Bezalel coupled five curtains to one another and the other five curtains to one another.
11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of the end curtain of the first set, and likewise he made them along the end curtain of the second set.
12 He made fifty loops on one curtain and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was the second set; the loops were opposite each other.
13 And he made fifty clasps of gold and coupled the curtains to one another with the clasps so that it became one tabernacle.
14 Then he made eleven curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the tabernacle.
15 The curtains were all of one size — thirty cubits long [45 ft] and four cubits [6 ft] wide.
16 And he joined five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.
17 He made fifty loops on the uttermost edge of the first set of curtains and fifty loops on the edge of the second set of curtains.
18 And he made fifty clasps of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one unit.
19 Then he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of porpoise skins above that.
20 He made boards for the upright frames of the tabernacle of shittim wood.
21 The length of each board was ten cubits [15 ft], and the width was a cubit and a half [2.25 ft].
22 Each board had two tenons [projections] for joining one to another. He did this for all the boards of the tabernacle.
23 Thus he made the boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side.
24 And he made forty bases of silver under the twenty boards, two bases under one board for its two projections, and two bases under another board for its two projections.
25 Also for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,
26 And their forty bases of silver, two bases under one board, and two bases under another board.
27 For the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.
28 And he made two boards for the corners of the tabernacle on the two sides.
29 They were double from the bottom but coupled together at the top with one ring; thus he did to both of them in both the corners.
30 There were eight boards with their sixteen bases of silver, under every board there were two bases.
31 He made crossbars of shittim wood, five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
32 And five crossbars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five crossbars for the boards of the tabernacle for the west side.
33 He made the middle crossbar pass through the boards from the one end to the other.
34 And he overlaid the boards and the crossbars with gold and made their rings of gold as places for the crossbars.
35 And he made a veil of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen with cherubim skillfully worked into them.
36 He made four pillars of shittim wood and overlaid them with gold for the veil; their hooks were of gold, and he cast four bases of silver for them.
37 Then he made a hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen, of embroidered needlework;
38 And its five pillars with their hooks. He overlaid their tops and their joinings with gold, but their five bases were of bronze.
