 36:9
 36:10
36:9 All the tapestries were the same size, 28 cubits long and 4 cubits wide.
Orech hayeri'ah ha'achat shmoneh ve'esrim ba'amah verochav arba ba'amah hayeri'ah ha'echat midah achat lechol-hayeri'ot.
36:10 The [first] five tapestries were sewn together, as were the other five.
Vayechaber et-chamesh hayeri'ot achat el-echat vechamesh yeri'ot chibar achat el-echat.



Commentary:

were sewn
  Literally, 'he sewed.' Some say that 'he' denotes Betzalel (Ibn Ezra on Exodus 37:1), indicating that he oversaw all the work (Tanchuma 7). According to others, it denotes Moses (Tanchuma 10; Midrash HaGadol) or the skilled craftsmen (Bachya on Exodus 37:1). This is true of all the passive statements here.
