21  The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.

22  One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

23  And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:

24  And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.

27  And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.

28  And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.

30  And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.

31  And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

32  And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.

3  And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans: all the vessels thereof made he of brass.

4  And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it.

5  And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of brass, to be places for the staves.

6  And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with brass.

10  Their pillars were twenty, and their brasen sockets twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.

11  And for the north side the hangings were an hundred cubits, their pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass twenty; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

12  And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

13  And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

14  The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

15  And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

19  And their pillars were four, and their sockets of brass four; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their chapiters and their fillets of silver.

26  And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it: also he made unto it a crown of gold round about.

27  And he made two rings of gold for it under the crown thereof, by the two corners of it, upon the two sides thereof, to be places for the staves to bear it withal.

The workmen

31  And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

32  And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

33  And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.

34  And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

35  Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.

The items of the Priesthood

Exodus 39

1 ¶  And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.

2  And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

3  And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

4  They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.

5  And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD commanded Moses.

6  And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.

7  And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

8  And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

9  It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

10  And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.

11  And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

12  And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

13  And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.

14  And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

15  And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends, of wreathen work of pure gold.

16  And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings; and put the two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.

17  And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate.

18  And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod, before it.

19  And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the ephod inward.

20  And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

21  And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.

22  And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.

23  And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend.

24  And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

25  And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates;

26  A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.

27  And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,

28  And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,

29  And a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, of needlework; as the LORD commanded Moses.

30  And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

31  And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.

More on the rest of the Sabbath

Exodus 35

1 ¶  And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.

2  Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.

3  Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.
