26:1 tabernacle. The tabernacle itself, which housed the Holy and Most Holy Places, was forty-five feet long, fifteen feet wide, and fifteen feet high. It was covered with ten curtains woven of expensive fabrics adorned with cherubim. Two sets of five curtains, forty-two feet by six feet, each of fine linen, were connected so as to provide a continuous piece measuring sixty by forty-two feet. This was then draped over the wooden framework. This inner covering ended one cubit (18 inches) short of the ground on either side (vv. 1–6).
