In this way, the Tabernacle will be made of one continuous piece.H6213H2572H7165H2091H2266H3407H802H269H7165H259H4908 7"Make eleven curtains of goat-hair cloth to serve as a tent covering for the Tabernacle.H6213H3407H5795H168H4908H6249H6240H3407H6213 8These eleven curtains must all be exactly the same size—45 feet long and 6 feet wide.H753H259H3407H7970H520H7341H259H3407H702H520H6249H6240H3407H259H4060 9Join five of these curtains together to make one long curtain, and join the other six into a second long curtain.

In this way, the tent covering will be made of one continuous piece.H6213H2572H7165H5178H935H7165H3924H2266H168H259 12The remaining 3 feet of this tent covering will be left to hang over the back of the Tabernacle.H5629H5736H3407H168H2677H3407H5736H5628H268H4908 13Allow 18 inches of remaining material to hang down over each side, so the Tabernacle is completely covered.H520H2088H520H5736H753H3407H168H5628H6654H4908H3680 14Complete the tent covering with a protective layer of tanned ram skins and a layer of fine goatskin leather.H6213H4372H168H352H5785H119H4372H4605H8476H5785 15"For the framework of the Tabernacle, construct frames of acacia wood.H6213H7175H4908H7848H6086H5975 16Each frame must be 15 feet high and 27 inches wide,H6235H520H753H7175H520H2677H7341H259H7175 17with two pegs under each frame.

Make both of these corner units the same way.H8382H4295H8382H3162H7218H259H2885H8147H8147H4740 25So there will be eight frames at the rear of the Tabernacle, set in sixteen silver bases—two bases under each frame.H8083H7175H134H3701H8337H6240H134H8147H134H259H7175H8147H134H259H7175 26"Make crossbars of acacia wood to link the frames, five crossbars for the north side of the TabernacleH6213H1280H7848H6086H2568H7175H259H6763H4908 27and five for the south side.

Overlay the posts with gold, and set them in four silver bases.H5414H702H5982H7848H6823H2091H2053H2091H702H134H3701 33Hang the inner curtain from clasps, and put the Ark of the Covenant in the room behind it. This curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.H5414H6532H7165H935H1004H6532H727H5715H6532H914H6944H6944H6944 34"Then put the Ark's cover—the place of atonement—on top of the Ark of the Covenant inside the Most Holy Place.H5414H3727H727H5715H6944H6944 35Place the table outside the inner curtain on the north side of the Tabernacle, and place the lampstand across the room on the south side.H7760H7979H2351H6532H4501H5227H7979H6763H4908H8486H5414H7979H6828H6763 36"Make another curtain for the entrance to the sacred tent.
