The Veils. 31 You shall make a veil woven of violet, purple, and scarlet yarn,(A) and of fine linen twined, with cherubim embroidered on it.(B) 32 It is to be hung on four gold-plated columns of acacia wood, which shall have gold hooks[a] and shall rest on four silver pedestals. 33 Hang the veil from clasps. The ark of the covenant you shall bring inside, behind this veil which divides the holy place from the holy of holies. 34 Set the cover on the ark of the covenant in the holy of holies.

35 Outside the veil you shall place the table and the menorah, the latter on the south side of the tabernacle, opposite the table, which is to be put on the north side. 36 For the entrance of the tent make a variegated[b] curtain of violet, purple, and scarlet yarn and of fine linen twined.
