Exodus 36:8-13 New International Version

The Making of the Tabernacle

8  All those who were skilled among the workers made the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim woven into them by expert hands. 9  All the curtains were the same size-twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide.[1] 10  They joined five of the curtains together and did the same with the other five. 11  Then they made loops of blue material along the edge of the end curtain in one set, and the same was done with the end curtain in the other set. 12  They also made fifty loops on one curtain and fifty loops on the end curtain of the other set, with the loops opposite each other. 13  Then they made fifty gold clasps and used them to fasten the two sets of curtains together so that the tabernacle was a unit.
