1 Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man (see 35:5), in whom the LORD (Yahaveh) 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.
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 stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:
3 And they received of Moses all the heave offering, which the sons of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet to him free offerings every morning.
4 And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;
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."
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.
7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

8 And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen (vv. 8-13. 15 in all [with the ark in the center], divided into 12 and 3), and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of the work of a skillful weaver made he them.
9 The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits (approx. 49'), and the breadth of one curtain four cubits (approx. 7'): the curtains were all of one size.
10 And he coupled the five curtains one to another: and the other five curtains he coupled one to another.
11 And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
12 Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.
13 And he made fifty taches of gold (hooks, pins, or clasps. In Eastern tents, curtains not sewn together, but pinned with wooden pins. Here made of gold), and coupled the curtains one to another with the taches: so it became one habitation.
35 And he made a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubim made he it of the work of a skillful weaver.
36 And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.
