1 Bezalel and Oholiab and all the skilled craftsmen to whom Yahweh had given skill and understanding to carry out all that was required for the building of the sanctuary, did their work exactly as Yahweh had directed.
2 Moses then called Bezalel and Oholiab and all the skilled craftsmen to whom Yahweh had given ability and who felt able to do the work. 3 They received from Moses all that the people of Israel had brought as contributions for the work of building the sanctuary. In the meantime, the people continued each morning to bring their offerings. 4 So the skilled craftsmen who did all the sacred work, besides their own work, 5 went to tell Moses, The people are bringing more than what is needed for the work which Yahweh has told us to do. 6 Moses then sent this command throughout the camp: Let no one, man or woman, do anything more toward the collection for the sanctuary. So the people were stopped from bringing any more
8 All the most skilled craftsmen among the workers made the Holy Tent. They made it with ten sheets of fine twined linen, of purple wool, violet shade and red, and of crimson wool, finely embroidered with angels. 9 The length of a single sheet was twenty-eight cu bits, its width four cubits, all the sheets being of the same size. 10 They sewed five of the sheets together, and the other five also. 11 They attached loops of violet wool to the border of the last sheet in one set, and did the same for the border of the last sheet in the other set. 12 They put fifty loops on the first sheet and, matching them one by one, fifty loops on the border of the last sheet in the second set. 13 They made fifty gold clasps and with them joined the two sets into one piece.
14 Next they made sheets of goats hair to form a tent over the Holy Tent
20 The Holy Tent was made with boards of acacia wood, which stood up right. 21 Each board was ten cubits long and one and a half cubits wide. 22 Each board was fitted with two matching arms
35 They made the veil of purple wool, violet shade and red, of crimson wool, and of fine twined linen, skillfully embroidered with Cher ubim. 36 For hanging this veil they made four posts of acacia wood and covered them with gold, with gold hooks, and they cast four silver bases for them. 37 For the entrance to the tent they made a curtain of purple wool, violet shade and red, and of crimson wool and fine twined linen, the work of a skilled embroiderer. 38 For the hanging of this they made five posts with hooks
