And five curtains will be of one another, being held the other with the other. And five curtains will be of one another, being held the other with the other. And you shall make for them hooks of blue upon the edge of the [2curtain 1one], joining the one part to the coupling. And thus you shall make upon the edge of the [2curtain 1outer] for the [2coupling 1second].

The length of the [2hide covering 1one] will be thirty cubits; and four cubits the breadth of the [2hide covering 1one]; [3measure 1the 2same] will be to the eleven hide coverings. And you shall join together the five hide coverings to the same, and the six hide coverings to the same. And you shall double up the [2hide covering 1sixth] in front of the tent. 10 And you shall make [2hooks 1fifty] upon the edge of the [2hide covering 1one], of the one in the middle by the coupling.

Thus shall you make to both the two corners, let them be equal! 25 And there shall be eight posts. And their bases of silver -- sixteen; and two bases to the [2post 1one], and two bases to the other [2post 1one]. 26 And you shall make bars from out of [2wood 1incorruptible]; five to the posts from the one part of the tent. 27 And five bars to the posts to the [2side 3of the 4tent 1second], and five bars for the posts on the posterior side of the tent, the one towards the west. 28 And the [2bar 1middle] in between the posts -- let it penetrate from the one side unto the other side! 29 And the posts you shall gild in gold.
