Exodus 38:1–20

The Tabernacle Completed

1 aThen he made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, five 1cubits 2long, and five cubits 3wide, square, and three cubits 4high.

2 He made its horns on its four corners, its horns 1being of one piece with it, and he overlaid it with 2bronze.

3 He made all the utensils of the altar, the pails and the shovels and the basins, the flesh hooks and the firepans; he made all its utensils of bronze.

4 He made for the altar a grating of bronze network beneath, under its ledge, reaching halfway up.

5 He cast four rings on the four ends of the bronze grating as holders for the poles.

6 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze.

7 He inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar, with which to carry it. He made it hollow with planks.

8 aMoreover, he made the laver of bronze with its base of bronze, 1from the mirrors of the serving women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

9 aThen he made the court: 1for the south side the hangings of the court were of fine twisted linen, one hundred cubits;

10 their twenty pillars, and their twenty 1sockets, made of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their 2bands were of silver.

11 For the north side there were one hundred cubits; their twenty pillars and their twenty 1sockets were of bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their 2bands were of silver.

12 For the west side there were hangings of fifty cubits with their ten pillars and their ten 1sockets; the hooks of the pillars and their 2bands were of silver.

13 For the 1east side fifty cubits.

14 The hangings for the one 1side of the gate were fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three 2sockets,

15 and so for the 1other 2side. 3On both sides of the gate of the court were hangings of fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three 4sockets.

16 All the hangings of the court all around were of fine twisted linen.

17 The 1sockets for the pillars were of 2bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their 3bands, of silver; and the overlaying of their tops, of silver, and all the pillars of the court were furnished with silver 3bands.

18 The screen of the gate of the court was the work of the 1weaver, of 2blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen. And the length was twenty cubits and the 3height was five cubits, corresponding to the hangings of the court.

19 Their four pillars and their four 1sockets were of bronze; their hooks were of silver, and the overlaying of their tops and their 2bands were of silver.

20 All the pegs of the 1tabernacle and of the court all around were of bronze.
