36:1 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise-hearted
man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding, to know how
to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary,
according to all that the LORD had commanded.
36:2 And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every
wise-hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom,
[even] every one whose heart excited him to come to the work to
36:3 And they received from Moses all the offering which the
children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of
the sanctuary, to make it. And they brought yet to him
free-offerings every morning.
36:4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the
sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made.
36:5 And they spoke to Moses, saying, The people bring much more
than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD
commanded to make.
36:6 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be
proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor
woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So
the people were restrained from bringing.
36:7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to
make it, and too much.
36:8 And every wise-hearted man among them that wrought the work
of the tabernacle made ten curtains [of] fine twined linen, and
blue, and purple, and scarlet: he made them [with] cherubim of
36:9 The length of one curtain [was] twenty and eight cubits,
and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains [were]
all of one size.
36:10 And he coupled the five curtains one to another: and [the
other] five curtains he coupled one to another.
36:11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from
the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the extremity
of [another] curtain, in the coupling of the second.
36:12 Fifty loops he made in one curtain, and fifty loops he
made in the edge of the curtain which [was] in the coupling of
the second: the loops held one [curtain] to another.
36:13 And he made fifty buttons of gold, and coupled the
curtains one to another with the buttons. So it became one
36:14 And he made curtains [of] goats' [hair] for the tent over
the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.
36:15 The length of one curtain [was] thirty cubits, and four
cubits [was] the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains
[were] of one size.
36:16 And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six
curtains by themselves.
36:17 And he made fifty loops upon the outermost edge of the
curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge
of the curtain which coupleth the second.
36:18 And he made fifty buttons [of] brass to couple the tent
together, that it might be one.
36:19 And he made a covering for the tent [of] rams' skins dyed
red, and a covering [of] badgers' skins above [that].
36:20 And he made boards for the tabernacle [of] shittim wood,
36:21 The length of a board [was] ten cubits, and the breadth of
a board one cubit and a half.
36:22 One board had two tenons, equally distant one from
another; thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
36:23 And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for
the south side southward:
36:24 And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty
boards; two sockets under one board for its two tenons, and two
sockets under another board for its two tenons.
36:25 And for the other side of the tabernacle [which is]
towards the north corner, he made twenty boards.
36:26 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one
board, and two sockets under another board.
36:27 And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six
36:28 And two boards he made for the corners of the tabernacle
in the two sides.
36:29 And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the
head thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both
36:30 And there were eight boards; and their sockets [were]
sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.
36:31 And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of
the one side of the tabernacle,
36:32 And five bars for the boards of the other side of the
tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for
the sides westward.
36:33 And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards
from the one end to the other.
36:34 And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings
[of] gold [to be] places for the bars, and overlaid the bars
36:35 And he made a vail [of] blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine twined linen: [with] cherubim he made it of curious work.
36:36 And he made to it four pillars [of] shittim [wood], and
overlaid them with gold: their hooks [were of] gold; and he
cast for them four sockets of silver.
36:37 And he made a hanging for the tabernacle-door [of] blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needle-work;
36:38 And the five pillars of it, with their hooks: and he
overlaid their capitals and their fillets with gold: but their
five sockets [were of] brass.
