9 Next they made the courtyard. The south side was a hundred cubits[a] long and had 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 was also a hundred cubits long and had twenty posts and twenty bronze bases, with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
12 The west end was fifty cubits[b] wide and had curtains, with ten posts and ten bases, with silver hooks and bands on the posts.13 The east end, toward the sunrise, was also fifty cubits wide.14 Curtains fifteen cubits[c] long were on one side of the entrance, with three posts and three bases,15 and curtains fifteen cubits long were on the other side of the entrance to the courtyard, with three posts and three bases.16 All the curtains around the courtyard were of finely twisted linen.17 The bases for the posts were bronze. The hooks and bands on the posts were silver, and their tops were overlaid with silver; so all the posts of the courtyard had silver bands.
18 The curtain for the entrance to the courtyard was made of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen—the work of an embroiderer. It was twenty cubits[d] long and, like the curtains of the courtyard, five cubits[e] high,19 with four posts and four bronze bases. Their hooks and bands were silver, and their tops were overlaid with silver.20 All the tent pegs of the tabernacle and of the surrounding courtyard were bronze.
