NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1"Make the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim woven into them by a skilled worker.1“Moreover, you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet yarns; you shall make them with cherubim skillfully worked into them.1"Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen and blue and purple and scarlet material; you shall make them with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.1Moreover 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.1You are to construct the tabernacle itself with 10 curtains. You must make them of finely spun linen, and blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, with a design of cherubim worked into them.
2All the curtains are to be the same size--twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.2The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall be the same size.2"The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall have the same measurements.2The 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.2The length of each curtain should be 42 feet, and the width of each curtain six feet; all the curtains are to have the same measurements.
3Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five.3Five curtains shall be coupled to one another, and the other five curtains shall be coupled to one another.3"Five curtains shall be joined to one another, and the other five curtains shall be joined to one another.3The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and other five curtains shall be coupled one to another.3Five of the curtains should be joined together, and the other five curtains joined together.
4Make loops of blue material along the edge of the end curtain in one set, and do the same with the end curtain in the other set.4And you shall make loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain in the first set. Likewise you shall make loops on the edge of the outermost curtain in the second set.4"You shall make loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain in the first set, and likewise you shall make them on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in the second set.4And 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.4Make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the last curtain in the first set, and do the same on the edge of the outermost curtain in the second set.

5Make fifty loops on one curtain and fifty loops on the end curtain of the other set, with the loops opposite each other.5Fifty loops you shall make on the one curtain, and fifty loops you shall make on the edge of the curtain that is in the second set; the loops shall be opposite one another.5"You shall make fifty loops in the one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is in the second set; the loops shall be opposite each other.5Fifty 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.5Make 50 loops on the one curtain and make 50 loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set, so that the loops line up together.
6Then make fifty gold clasps and use them to fasten the curtains together so that the tabernacle is a unit.6And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains one to the other with the clasps, so that the tabernacle may be a single whole.6"You shall make fifty clasps of gold, and join the curtains to one another with the clasps so that the tabernacle will be a unit.6And thou shalt make fifty taches of gold, and couple the curtains together with the taches: and it shall be one tabernacle.6Also make 50 gold clasps and join the curtains together with the clasps, so that the tabernacle may be a single unit."

12As for the additional length of the tent curtains, the half curtain that is left over is to hang down at the rear of the tabernacle.12And the part that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle.12"The overlapping part that is left over in the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that is left over, shall lap over the back of the tabernacle.12And the remnant that remaineth of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the backside of the tabernacle.12As for the flap that is left over from the tent curtains, the leftover half curtain is to hang down over the back of the tabernacle.
13The tent curtains will be a cubit longer on both sides; what is left will hang over the sides of the tabernacle so as to cover it.13And the extra that remains in the length of the curtains, the cubit on the one side, and the cubit on the other side, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and that side, to cover it.13"The cubit on one side and the cubit on the other, of what is left over in the length of the curtains of the tent, shall lap over the sides of the tabernacle on one side and on the other, to cover it.13And 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.13The half yard on one side and the half yard on the other of what is left over along the length of the tent curtains should be hanging down over the sides of the tabernacle on either side to cover it.

24At these two corners they must be double from the bottom all the way to the top and fitted into a single ring; both shall be like that.24they shall be separate beneath, but joined at the top, at the first ring.

So it should be for both of them; they will serve as the two corners.

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
31"Make a curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen, with cherubim woven into it by a skilled worker.31“And you shall make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen.

33Hang the curtain from the clasps and place the ark of the covenant law behind the curtain. The curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.33And you shall hang the veil from the clasps, and bring the ark of the testimony in there within the veil. And the veil shall separate for you the Holy Place from the Most Holy.33"You shall hang up the veil under the clasps, and shall bring in the ark of the testimony there within the veil; and the veil shall serve for you as a partition between the holy place and the holy of holies.33And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.33Hang the veil under the clasps and bring the ark of the testimony there behind the veil, so the veil will make a separation for you between the holy place and the most holy place.
34Put the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant law in the Most Holy Place.34You shall put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the Most Holy Place.34"You shall put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the holy of holies.34And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place.34Put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the most holy place.
35Place the table outside the curtain on the north side of the tabernacle and put the lampstand opposite it on the south side.35And you shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand on the south side of the tabernacle opposite the table, and you shall put the table on the north side.35"You shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand opposite the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south; and you shall put the table on the north side.35And 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.35Place the table outside the veil and the lampstand on the south side of the tabernacle, opposite the table; put the table on the north side."
