1Then wrought 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, according to all that the LORD had commanded.2And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:3And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal . And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.4And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;5And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.6And 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.7For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.8And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them.9The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.10And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.11And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.12Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.13And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.14And he made curtains of goats'hair for the tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.15The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.16And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.17And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.18And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.19And he made a covering for the tent of rams'skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers'skins above that .20And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.21The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.22One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.23And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:24And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.25And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,26And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.27And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.28And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.29And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the corners.30And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.31And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,32And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.33And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other.34And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.35And he made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work.36And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood , and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.37And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;38And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were of brass.

1“Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whom the Lord has put skill and intelligence to know how to do any work in the construction of the sanctuary shall work in accordance with all that the Lord has commanded.” (Ex 28:3; Ex 31:6; Ex 35:10; Ex 35:25)2And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the Lord had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work. (Ex 25:2)3And they received from Moses all the contribution that the people of Israel had brought for doing the work on the sanctuary. They still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning, (Ex 35:24; Ex 35:29)4so that all the craftsmen who were doing every sort of task on the sanctuary came, each from the task that he was doing,5and said to Moses, “The people bring much more than enough for doing the work that the Lord has commanded us to do.” (2Ch 31:10; 2Co 8:2)6So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, “Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing, (Ex 36:3)7for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more.8And all the craftsmen among the workmen made the tabernacle with ten curtains. They were made of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet yarns, with cherubim skillfully worked. (Ex 26:1)9The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits. All the curtains were the same size.10He coupled five curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he coupled to one another.11He made loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain of the first set. Likewise he made them on the edge of the outermost curtain of the second set.12He made fifty loops on the one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was in the second set. The loops were opposite one another.13And he made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled the curtains one to the other with clasps. So the tabernacle was a single whole.14He also made curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle. He made eleven curtains.15The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits. The eleven curtains were the same size.16He coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.17And he made fifty loops on the edge of the outermost curtain of the one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the other connecting curtain.18And he made fifty clasps of bronze to couple the tent together that it might be a single whole.19And he made for the tent a covering of tanned rams’ skins and goatskins.20Then he made the upright frames for the tabernacle of acacia wood. (Ex 25:5; Ex 25:28; Ex 26:15; Ex 30:5)21Ten cubits was the length of a frame, and a cubit and a half the breadth of each frame.22Each frame had two tenons for fitting together. He did this for all the frames of the tabernacle.23The frames for the tabernacle he made thus: twenty frames for the south side.24And he made forty bases of silver under the twenty frames, two bases under one frame for its two tenons, and two bases under the next frame for its two tenons.25For the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, he made twenty frames26and their forty bases of silver, two bases under one frame and two bases under the next frame.27For the rear of the tabernacle westward he made six frames.28He made two frames for corners of the tabernacle in the rear.29And they were separate beneath but joined at the top, at the first ring. He made two of them this way for the two corners.30There were eight frames with their bases of silver: sixteen bases, under every frame two bases.31He made bars of acacia wood, five for the frames of the one side of the tabernacle,32and five bars for the frames of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the frames of the tabernacle at the rear westward.33And he made the middle bar to run from end to end halfway up the frames.34And he overlaid the frames with gold, and made their rings of gold for holders for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.35He made the veil of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen; with cherubim skillfully worked into it he made it. (Ex 26:31)36And for it he made four pillars of acacia and overlaid them with gold. Their hooks were of gold, and he cast for them four bases of silver.37He also made a screen for the entrance of the tent, of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen, embroidered with needlework,38and its five pillars with their hooks. He overlaid their capitals, and their fillets were of gold, but their five bases were of bronze.
