The south side shall be a hundred cubits[a] long and is to have curtains of finely twisted linen,10 with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases and with silver hooks and bands on the posts.11 The north side shall also be a hundred cubits long and is to have curtains, with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases and with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
