Exodus 26
King James 2000

The Tabernacle

1Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of skillful work shall you make them.

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 the same measure.

3The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and the other five curtains shall be coupled one to another.

4And you shall make loops of blue upon the edge of the outmost curtain from the first set; and likewise shall you make in the edge of the outmost curtain, in the coupling of the second set.

5Fifty loops shall you make in the one curtain, and fifty loops shall you make in the edge of the curtain that is in the second set; that the loops may take hold one of another.

6And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains together with the clasps: and it shall be one tabernacle.

7And you shall make curtains of goats' hair to be a covering upon the tabernacle: eleven curtains shall you make.

8The length of one curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and the eleven curtains shall be all of the same measure.

9And you shall couple five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves, and shall double over the sixth curtain in the front of the tabernacle.

10And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the one curtain that is outmost in the one set, and fifty loops in the edge of the curtain which couples the second.

11And you shall make fifty clasps of bronze, and put the clasps into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.

12And the remnant that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle.

13And a cubit on the one side, and a cubit on the other side of that which remains 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.

14And you shall make a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering above that of badgers' skins.

15And you shall make boards for the tabernacle of acacia wood standing upright.

16Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a half shall be the breadth of one board.

17Two tenons shall there be in one board, set in order for binding together: thus shall you make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

18And you shall make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards on the south side southward.

19And you shall make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for its two tenons, and two sockets under another board for its two tenons.

20And for the second side of the tabernacle on the north side there shall be twenty boards:

21And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

22And for the sides of the tabernacle westward you shall make six boards.

23And two boards shall you make for the corners of the tabernacle in the rear.

24And they shall be coupled together at the bottom, and they shall be coupled together at the top of it unto one ring: thus shall it be for them both; they shall be for the two corners.

25And there shall be eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

26And you shall make bars of acacia wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

27And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle at the rear westward.

28And the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach from end to end.

29And you shall overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of gold for places for the bars: and you shall overlay the bars with gold.

30And you shall raise up the tabernacle according to the pattern of it which was shown you on the mount.

31And you shall make a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen of skillful work: with cherubim shall it be made:

32And you shall hang it upon four pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets of silver.

33And you shall hang up the veil from the clasps, that you may bring in there within the veil the ark of the testimony: and the veil shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.

34And you shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place.

35And 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.

36And you shall make a hanging for the door of the tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, embroidered with needlework.

37And you shall make for the hanging five pillars of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of gold: and you shall cast five sockets of bronze for them.
