1 “Now Bezalel and Oholiab, and every 1skillful person in whom the Lord has put 2skill and understanding to know how to perform all the work 3in the construction of the sanctuary, shall perform in accordance with all that the Lord has commanded.”
3 They received from Moses all the 1contributions which the sons of Israel had brought 2to perform the work 3in the construction of the sanctuary. And they still continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning.
6 So Moses issued a command, and a 1proclamation was circulated throughout the camp, saying, “Let no man or woman any longer perform work for the 2contributions of the sanctuary.” Thus the people were restrained from bringing any more.
8 aAll the 1skillful men among those who were performing the work made the 2tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twisted linen and 3blue and purple and scarlet material, with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman, 4Bezalel made them.
15 The length of each curtain was thirty cubits and four cubits the width of each curtain; the eleven curtains had 1the same measurements.
16 He 1joined five curtains by themselves and the other six curtains by themselves.
19 He made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins 1dyed red, and a covering of porpoise skins above.
20 aThen he made the boards for the tabernacle of acacia wood, standing upright.
21 Ten cubits was the length of 1each board and one and a half cubits the width of each board.
22 There were two tenons for each board, 1fitted to one another; thus he did for all the boards of the tabernacle.
23 He made the boards for the tabernacle: twenty boards 1for the south side;
27 For the 1rear of the tabernacle, to the west, he made six boards.
31 Then he made abars of acacia wood, five for the boards of one side of the tabernacle,
33 He made the middle bar to pass through in the 1center of the boards from end to end.
36 He made four pillars of acacia for it, and overlaid them with gold, with their hooks of gold; and he cast four 1sockets of silver for them.
