CHAPTER 36

The Priests' Garments

And Bezaleel prepared, and Aholiab, and all wise in thought, in whom was given wisdom and higher knowledge for them to perceive to do all the works [2for 3the 4holies, 1being fit], according to all as much as the  lord ordered. And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and all the ones having the wisdom, to whom God gave higher knowledge in the heart, and all of the ones voluntarily willing to go to the works so as to complete them. And they took from Moses all the choice-portion offerings which [4brought 1the 2sons 3of Israel] for all the works of the holy place, to prepare them. And they favorably received still the things being brought from the ones bringing morning by morning. And [4came 1all 2the 3wise ones], the ones doing the works of the holy place, each according to his own work, which they worked. And they said to Moses, that, [4a multitude 3bring 1The 2people] for the works, as much as the  lord ordered to do. And Moses assigned, and proclaimed in the camp, saying, Let a man and woman no longer work in the first-fruits of the holy place. And [3were restrained 1the 2people] still to bring. And the supply of works was to them enough for [2the 3furniture 1making]; and they left surplus. And [7produced 1every 2wise one 3in thought 4among 5the ones 6working] for the tent ten curtains from out of linen being twined, and blue and purple, and scarlet being twined; [3with cherubim 4the work 5of a weaver 1he made 2them]. The length of the [2curtain 1one] -- eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of four cubits [2to the 4curtain 3one 1was]. [3measure 1The 2same] was to all the curtains. 10 And five curtains were of one another, being held the other with the other. And five curtains were of one another, being held the other with the other. 11 And he made hooks of blue upon the edge of the [2curtain 1one] joining the one part for the coupling. And thus he made upon the edge of the [2curtain 1outer] for the [2coupling 1second]. 12 And fifty hooks he made for the [2curtain 1one], and fifty hooks he made for the part of the curtain corresponding to the coupling of the second, facing headlong into one another each. 13 And he made [2hooks 1fifty] of gold. And he joined together the curtains an other to an other by the hooks. And [3became 1the 2tent] one.

The Hide Coverings, Hooks and Hoops

14 And he made hide coverings of hair to protect over the tent. Eleven hide coverings he made them. 15 The length of the [2hide covering 1one] was thirty cubits, and four cubits the breadth of the [2hide covering 1one]. [3measure 1The 2same] was to the eleven hide coverings. 16 And he joined together the five hide coverings to the same, and the six hide coverings to the same. 17 And he made [2hooks 1fifty] upon the edge of the [2hide covering 1one], in the middle by the coupling. And fifty hooks he made upon the edge of the [2hide covering 3joining 1second]. 18 And he made [2hooks 3of brass 1fifty]. And he joined together the hooks by the hooks, and he joined together the hide coverings, and it became one. 19 And he made a covering for the tent -- skins of rams dyed red, and coverings of skins of blue on top.

20 And he made posts for the tent from out of [2wood 1incorruptible]. 21 Ten cubits was the [2post 1one], and [2cubit 1one] and a half the width of the [2post 1one]. 22 Two joints to the [2post 1one] resting headlong against an other to an other; thus he made all the posts of the tent. 23 And he made the posts of the tent -- twenty posts by the side of the one towards the south. 24 And forty bases of silver he made for the twenty posts. Two bases to the [2post 1one], for both its parts. And two bases to the other [2post 1one], for both its parts. 25 And the [2side 1second] towards the north -- twenty posts, 26 and forty bases for them made of silver. Two bases to the [2post 1one], for both its parts. And two bases for the other [2post 1one], for both its parts. 27 And by the rear of the tent by the part towards the west, he made six posts. 28 And two posts he made at the corners of the tent at the posteriors. 29 And they were of equal below, and according to the same measurement they were equal from the heads unto [2coupling 1one]. Thus he made to both the [2corners 1two]. 30 And there were eight posts, and their bases of silver -- sixteen. Two bases to the [2post 1one], and two bases to the [2post 1one], for both it parts. 31 And he made bars from out of [2wood 1incorruptible]; five to the posts from the one part of the tent; and five bars to the posts to the [2side 3of the 4tent 1second]. 32 And five bars for the posts to the posterior side of the tent towards the west. 33 And the [2bar 1middle] in between the posts penetrated from the one side unto the other side. 34 And the posts he gilded in gold; and their rings he made of gold for holders to the bearing poles.
