Exodus 26 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
26 “Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of finetwined linen, and blue and purple and scarlet. With cherubims of the work of a skilled embroiderer shalt thou make them.
2 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.
3 The five curtains shall be coupled together one to another, and other five curtains shall be coupled one to another.
4 And thou shalt make loops of blue upon the edge of the one curtain from the selvage in the coupling, and likewise shalt thou do on the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
5 Fifty loops shalt thou make in the one curtain, and fifty loops shalt thou make on the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling of the second, that the loops may take hold one to another.
6 And thou shalt make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains together with the clasps; and it shall be one tabernacle.
7 “And thou shalt make curtains of goats’ hair to be a covering upon the tabernacle; eleven curtains shalt thou make.
8 The length of one curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits; and the eleven curtains shall be all the same measure.
9 And thou shalt couple five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves, and shalt double the sixth curtain at the forefront of the tabernacle.
10 And thou shalt make fifty loops on the edge of the one curtain that is outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.
11 “And thou shalt make fifty clasps of brass, and put the clasps into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.
12 And the remnant that remaineth of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the backside of the tabernacle.
13 And a cubit on the one side and a cubit on the other side, of that which remaineth of the length of the curtains of the tent, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle on this side and on that side to cover it.
14 And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering above of badgers’ skins.
15 “And thou shalt make boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood standing upright.
16 Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a half shall be the breadth of one board.
17 Two tenons shall there be in one board, set in order to join one to another. Thus shalt thou make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
18 And thou shalt make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards for the south side southward.
19 And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards: two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.
20 And for the second side of the tabernacle on the north side, there shall be twenty boards
21 and their forty sockets of silver: two sockets under one board and two sockets under another board.
22 And for the sides of the tabernacle westward, thou shalt make six boards.
23 And two boards shalt thou make for the corners of the tabernacle at the two sides.
24 And they shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall be coupled together above the head of it into one ring. Thus shall it be for them both; they shall be for the two corners.
25 And there shall be eight boards with their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets: two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.
26 “And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood: five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,
27 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.
28 And the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach from end to end.
29 And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of gold for places for the bars; and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold.
30 And thou shalt raise up the tabernacle according to the fashion thereof which was shown thee on the mount.
31 “And thou shalt make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet, and finetwined linen of skillful work; with cherubims shall it be made.
32 And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold; their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets of silver.
33 And thou shalt hang up the veil under the clasps, that thou mayest bring in thither within the veil the ark of the Testimony; and the veil shall divide unto you between the holy place and the Most Holy.
34 And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy Place.
35 And thou shalt set the table outside the veil, and the candlestick opposite the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south; and thou shalt put the table on the north side.
36 “And thou shalt make a hanging for the door of the tent of blue and purple and scarlet and finetwined linen, wrought with needlework.
37 And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of gold; and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them.
