The Temple Veil (1)

Divrei HaYamim Sheniy (2 Chronicles)

3

8 He (king Schlomoh) made the Holy of Holies, its length corresponding to the width of the House—20 cubits long and 20 cubits wide. He overlaid it with 600 talents of fine gold. 9 The weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. He also overlaid the upper rooms with gold. 

10 Next he made two sculptured cheruvim in the Holy of Holies and overlaid them with gold. 11 The wingspan of the cheruvim was 20 cubits. The conversion is 30 feet in height.

One wing of the first cheruv was five cubits long and touched the wall of the House, while the other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the other cheruv. 

12 Similarly, one wing of the second cheruv was five cubits long and touched the wall of the House, while the other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the other cheruv. 

13 Thus the wingspan of these cheruvim was 20 cubits. They stood on their feet facing the main hall. 

14 Furthermore, he made the veil of blue, purple, crimson yarn and fine linen with cheruvim worked into it.
