Exodus 26-27 Tree of Life Version (TLV)


26 “Moreover you are to make the Tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven linen, of blue[a], purple and scarlet, with cheruvim made by the work of a skillful craftsman. The length of each curtain is to be 28 cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. All the curtains are to have the same measure. Five curtains are to be coupled together one to another, and the other five curtains are also to be coupled one to another. Also make loops of violet on the edge of the one curtain that is outermost in the first set, and do likewise within the edge of the curtain that is outermost in the second set. You are to make 50 loops in the first curtain and 50 loops on the edge of the curtain that is in the second set. The loops are to be opposite one another. Then make 50 clasps of gold, and couple the curtains one to another with the clasps, so that the Tabernacle may be one piece.

“You are to make curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Tabernacle, 11 curtains in all. The length of each curtain is to be 30 cubits and the width of each curtain four cubits. The eleven curtains are to have the same measurement. You are to couple five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves, and double over the sixth curtain in the forefront of the tent. 10 Then make 50 loops on the edge of the one curtain that is outermost in the first set, along with 50 loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in the second set. 11 Make 50 bronze clasps, put them into the loops, and couple the tent together, so that it may be one. 12 As for the overhanging part that remains of the tent curtains, the half curtain that remains is to hang over the back of the Tabernacle. 13 The extra cubit on one side, as well as the cubit on the other side, which remains in the length of the curtains of the tent, is to hang over the sides of the Tabernacle on each side, to cover it. 14 You are to make a covering for the tent of ram skins, dyed red, and a covering of sealskins above.

15 “You are to make the framework of boards for the Tabernacle from acacia wood, standing upright. 16 The length of each board is to be 10 cubits by one and a half cubits wide. 17 There are to be two supports in each board, joined one to another. Do this for all the boards of the Tabernacle. 18 You are to make the 20 boards for the south side of the Tabernacle, 19 and 40 silver bases underneath the 20 boards. Two bases go underneath one board for its supports and two bases under another board for its supports. 20 Likewise, for the second side of the Tabernacle, on the north side, there are to be 20 boards, 21 with their 40 bases of silver. Two bases go under one board and two bases under the next board. 22 For the back part of the Tabernacle, westward, you are to make six boards. 23 Make two boards for the corners of the Tabernacle on the back side. 24 They are also to be doubled at the bottom, and in the same way joined at the top by the first ring. It is to be this way for them both, and they will provide for the two corners. 25 So there will be eight boards, with 16 silver bases, two bases under each board.

26 “Also make crossbeams of acacia wood, five for the boards on one side of the Tabernacle, 27 five for the boards on the other side of the Tabernacle, and five for the boards on the back part of the Tabernacle to the west. 28 The middle crossbeam in the center of the boards will pass through from end to end. 29 Then overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings from gold as holders for the crossbeams, and overlay the crossbeams with gold.

30 “You are to raise up the Tabernacle according to the plan which you were shown on the mountain.

31 “Make a fine woven linen curtain[b] of blue, purple and scarlet, with cheruvim. It is to be the work of a skillful craftsman. 32 You are to hang it on four pillars of acacia overlaid with gold, their hooks being made of gold, atop four bases of silver. 33 You are to hang the curtain under the clasps, and bring the Ark within the curtain of the Testimony. The parokhet will divide for you between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.

34 “Then you are to put the atonement cover on the Ark of the Testimony in the Holy of Holies. 35 You shall set the table outside the curtain, and the menorah opposite the table on the side of the Tabernacle toward the south. You are to put the table on the north side.[c]

36 “For the entrance of the tent, also make a screen of blue, purple and scarlet, finely twisted linen, the work of a color weaver. 37 You are also to make for the screen five pillars of acacia, and overlay them with gold. Their hooks are to be made of gold, and you are to cast five bases of bronze for them.

Altar, Courtyard, Oil

27 “Make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide. The altar will be square and its height is to be three cubits. Make horns on the four corners—of one piece. Overlay it with bronze. You are to make pots for it to take away ashes, along with shovels, basins, forks and fire pans—make all the utensils of bronze. Also make a bronze grating net for it, and on the net you are to make four bronze rings on the four corners. You are to place it under the ledge around the altar beneath, so that the net may reach halfway up the altar. Make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze. Its poles are to be put into the rings, on the two sides of the altar, for carrying it. You are to make it with planks so that it is hollow. As it has been shown to you in the mountain, they are to make it just so.

“You are also to make a courtyard for the Tabernacle. For the south side there are to be hangings for the courtyard of finely twisted linen, 100 cubits long. 10 There are to be 20 pillars with 20 bronze bases, and the hooks on the pillars along with their bands are to be made of silver. 11 Likewise for the north side, in length there are to be 100 cubit long hangings, 20 pillars and 20 bronze bases. The hooks of the pillars and their clasps are to be made of silver.

12 “Now for the width of the courtyard on the west side there are to be 50 cubits of hangings, ten pillars and ten bases. 13 The width of the courtyard on the east side is to be 50 cubits. 14 The hangings on one side of the gate are to be 15 cubits, with three pillars and three bases. 15 For the other side there is also to be 15 cubits of hangings, with three pillars and three bases.

16 “For the gate of the courtyard there is to be a 20 cubit curtain of blue, purple, scarlet and finely twisted linen, the work of a color weaver, along with their four pillars and their four bases. 17 The pillars of the courtyard are to be banded with silver, their hooks of silver, and their bases of bronze all around. 18 The length of the courtyard is to be 100 cubits, and the width 50 throughout. The height is to be five cubits, with hangings of finely twisted linen, with their bronze bases. 19 All the articles of the Tabernacle for all the services there, along with all the pegs, including all the pegs of the courtyard, are to be bronze.

Parashat Tetzaveh

20 “Also you are to command Bnei-Yisrael, that they are to bring to you pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. 21 In the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain which is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons will set it in order, to burn from evening to morning before Adonai. It will be a statute forever throughout their generations, on behalf of Bnei-Yisrael.
