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

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

and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with
