The Old Testament Tabernacle
Coverings of the Tabernacle
And thou shalt make curtains of goats’ hair to be a covering upon the tabernacle: eleven curtains shalt thou make.
The lenght of one curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and the elven curtains shall be all of one measure.
And thou shalt couple five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves, and shalt double the sixth curtain in the forefront of the tabernacle.
And thou shalt make fifty loops on the edge of one curtain that is outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops in the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.
And thou shalt make fifty taches of brass, and put the taches into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.
And the remnant that emauneth of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the backside of the tabernacle.
