 26:7
 26:8
26:7 Make sheets of goat's wool to serve as a tent over the tabernacle. There shall be 11 such sheets,
Ve'asita yeri'ot izim le'ohel al-haMishkan ashtey-esreh yeri'ot ta'aseh otam.
26:8 and each sheet shall be 30 cubits long, and 4 cubits wide. All 11 sheets must be the same size.
Orech hayeri'ah ha'achat shloshim ba'amah verochav arba ba'amah hayeri'ah ha'echat midah achat le'ashtey esreh yeri'ot.



Commentary:

30 cubits...
  Each curtain was 45' x 6'. These sheets were 2 cubits longer than the tapestries. They therefore hung down on the sides one cubit below the tapestries. Regarding the back, see below.
