Exodus 26:1-6 New International Version

The Tabernacle

26 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. 2  All the curtains are to be the same size-twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.[1] 3  Join five of the curtains together, and do the same with the other five. 4  Make 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. 5  Make fifty loops on one curtain and fifty loops on the end curtain of the other set, with the loops opposite each other. 6  Then make fifty gold clasps and use them to fasten the curtains together so that the tabernacle is a unit.


[1] 26:2 That is, about 42 feet long and 6 feet wide or about 13 meters long and 1.8 meters wide
