Exodus 26

Exodus 26:1  
And you are to make a House for me, with ten curtains of the best linen, blue and purple and red, worked with designs of winged ones by a good workman.

Exodus 26:2  
Every curtain is to be twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure.

Exodus 26:3  
Five curtains are to be joined together, and the other five are to be joined together.

Exodus 26:4  
And you are to put twists of blue cord on the edge of the outside curtain of the first group of five, and on the edge of the outside curtain of the second group of five;

Exodus 26:5  
Fifty twists on one curtain and fifty on the other, the twists to be opposite one another.

Exodus 26:6  
Then make fifty gold hooks, joining the curtains together by the hooks, and in this way the House will be made.

Exodus 26:7  
And you are to make curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the House, eleven curtains.

Exodus 26:8  
Every curtain is to be thirty cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure.

Exodus 26:9  
Five of these curtains are to be joined together, and the other six are to be joined together, the sixth being folded over to make a hanging in front of the tent.

Exodus 26:10  
And you are to put fifty twists of cord on the edge of the outside curtain of one group, and fifty twists on the edge of the outside curtain of the other group.

Exodus 26:11  
Then make fifty brass hooks and put the hooks into the twists, joining the tent together to make it one.

Exodus 26:12  
And the folded part which is over of the curtains of the tent, the half-curtain which is folded back, will be hanging down over the back of the House.

Exodus 26:13  
And the cubit which is over of the ten curtains at the sides will be hanging over the two sides of the House as a cover.

Exodus 26:14  
And then you are to make a cover for the tent, of sheepskins coloured red, and a cover of leather over that.

Exodus 26:15  
And you are to make upright boards of hard wood for the House.

Exodus 26:16  
Every board is to be ten cubits high and a cubit and a half wide.

Exodus 26:17  
Every board is to be joined to the one nearest to it by two tongues, and so for every board in the House.

Exodus 26:18  
These are the boards needed for the house; twenty boards for the south side,

Exodus 26:19  
With forty silver bases under the twenty boards, two bases under every board to take its tongues.

Exodus 26:20  
And twenty boards for the second side of the house on the north,

Exodus 26:21  
With their forty silver bases, two under every board.

Exodus 26:22  
And six boards for the back of the House on the west,

Exodus 26:23  
With two boards for the angles of the House at the back.

Exodus 26:24  
The two are to be joined together at the base and at the top to one ring, forming the two angles.

Exodus 26:25  
So there are to be eight boards, with their sixteen silver bases, two bases under every board.

Exodus 26:26  
And make rods of the same wood, five for the boards on the one side,

Exodus 26:27  
And five for the boards on the other side of the House, and five for the west side of the House at the back.

Exodus 26:28  
And the middle rod is to go through the rings of all the boards from end to end.

Exodus 26:29  
And the boards are to be plated with gold, having gold rings for the rods to go through: and the rods are to be plated with gold.

Exodus 26:30  
And you are to make the House from the design which you saw on the mountain.

Exodus 26:31  
And you are to make a veil of the best linen, blue and purple and red, worked with designs of winged ones by a good workman:

Exodus 26:32  
Hanging it by gold hooks from four pillars of wood, plated with gold and fixed in silver bases.

Exodus 26:33  
And you are to put up the veil under the hooks, and put inside it the ark of the law: the veil is to be a division between the holy place and the most holy.

Exodus 26:34  
You are to put the cover on the ark of the law, inside the most holy place.

Exodus 26:35  
And outside the veil you are to put the table, and the support for the lights opposite the table on the south side of the House; and the table is to be on the north side.

Exodus 26:36  
And you are to make a curtain for the doorway of the Tent, of the best linen with needlework of blue and purple and red.

Exodus 26:37  
And make five pillars for the curtain, of hard wood plated with gold; their hooks are to be of gold and their bases of brass
