Shmot (Exodus) 25:31—26:14

31You shall make a Menorah of pure gold, hammered out shall the Menorah be made, its base, its shaft, its cups, its knobs, and its blossoms shall be hammered from it. 32Six branches shall emerge from its sides, three branches of the Menorah from its one side and three branches of the Menorah from its second side; 33three cups engraved like almonds on the one branch, a knob and a flower; and three cups engraved like almonds on the next branch, a knob and a flower—so for the six branches that emerge from the Menorah. 34And on the Menorah shall be four cups, engraved like almonds, its knobs and its flowers. 35A knob shall be under two of the branches from it—for the six branches emerging from the Menorah. 36Their knobs and branches shall be of it; all of it a single hammered piece of pure gold. 37You shall make its lamps seven; he shall kindle its lamps so as to give light toward its face. 38Its tongs and its spoons shall be of pure gold. 39Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. 40See and make, according to their form that you are shown on the mountain.

Chapter 26
1You shall make the Tabernacle of ten curtains—twisted linen with turquoise, purple, and scarlet wool—with a woven design of cherubim shall you make them. 2The length of a single curtain twenty-eight cubits, and the width four cubits for each curtain, the same measure for all the curtains. 3Five curtains shall be attached to one another, and five curtains attached to one another. 4You shall make loops of turquoise wool at the edge of the outermost curtain at the end of one set, and you shall make the same on the edge of the outermost curtain on the second set. 5Fifty loops shall you make on the first curtain and fifty loops shall you make on the end of the curtain that is on the second set; the loops shall correspond to one another. 6You shall make fifty hooks of gold, and you shall attach the curtains to one another with the hooks, so that the Tabernacle shall become one.

7You shall make curtains of goat hair for a Tent over the Tabernacle; eleven curtains shall you make them. 8The length of a single curtain thirty cubits, and the width of a single curtain four cubits; the same measure for eleven curtains. 9You shall attach five of the curtains separately and six of the curtains separately, and you shall fold the sixth curtain over the front of the Tent. 10You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the first curtain at the end of one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set. 11You shall make fifty hooks of copper; you shall bring the hooks into the loops and attach the Tent, so that it shall become one. 12As for the extra overhang of the curtains of the Tent—half of the extra curtain shall hang over the back of the Tabernacle. 13And the cubit on one side and the cubit on the other side, that are extra length of the curtains of the Tent, shall hang over the sides of the Tabernacle on one side and the other, to cover it.

14You shall make a Cover for the Tent of red-dyed ram skins, and a Cover of tachash skins above.
