The Tent of God measures 53 feet long, 23 feet wide, and 16 feet 8 inches high.
"Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen,
and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make
them. The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth
of one curtain four cubits: and every one of the curtains shall have one measure.
The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and other five curtains
shall be coupled one to another.
And thou shalt make loops of blue upon the edge of the one curtain from the
selvedge in the coupling; and likewise shalt thou make in the uttermost edge of
another curtain, in the coupling of the second. Fifty loops shalt thou make in the
one curtain, and fifty loops shalt thou make in the edge of the curtain that is in
the coupling of the second; that the loops may take hold one of another. And thou
shalt make fifty taches of gold, and couple the curtains together with the taches:
and it shall be one tabernacle.
And thou shalt make curtains of goats' hair to be a covering upon the tabernacle:
eleven curtains shalt thou make. The length of one curtain shall be thirty cubits,
and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and the eleven curtains shall be all of
one measure. And thou shalt couple five curtains by themselves, and six curtains
by themselves, and shalt double the sixth curtain in the forefront of the tabernacle.
And thou shalt make fifty loops on the edge of the one curtain that is outmost in
the coupling, and fifty loops in the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.
And thou shalt make fifty taches of brass, and put the taches into the loops, and
couple the tent together, that it may be one. And the remnant that remaineth of
the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the backside
of the tabernacle.
And a cubit on the one side, and a cubit on the other side of that which remaineth
in the length of the curtains of the tent, it shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle
on this side and on that side, to cover it.
And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering
above of badgers' skins.
And thou shalt make boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood standing up. Ten
cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a half shall be the breadth
of one board. Two tenons shall there be in one board, set in order one against
another: thus shalt thou make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
And thou shalt make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards on the south side
southward. And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two
sockets under one board for his two tenons. And for the second side of the tabernacle
one the north side there shall be twenty boards; and their forty sockets of silver; two
sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.
And for the sides of the tabernacle westward thou shalt make six boards. And two
boards shalt thou make for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides. And they
shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall be coupled together above the
head of it unto one ring: thus shall it be for them both; they shall be for the two
corners. And they shall be eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets;
two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.
And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five
bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle, for the two sides westward. And
the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach from end to end.
And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of gold for places
for the bars: and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold. And thou shalt rear up the
tabernacle according to the fashion thereof which was shewed thee in the mount.
And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen
of cunning work: with cherubims shall it be made: and thou shalt hand it upon four
pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the
four sockets of silver. And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou
mayest bring in thither within the vail of the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall
divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.
And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy
place. And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the candlestick over against
the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: and thou shalt put the
table on the north side.
And thou shalt make a hanging for the door of the tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet,
and fine twined linen, wrought with needlework. And thou shalt make for the hanging
five pillars of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of
gold: and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them."
