A full-page panel with a ground plan of the tabernacle on the right on a chequered ground, and a plan of Noah's ark on the left.

Inscribed on top: צורת המשכן "the form of the Tabernacle". In the centre is the long narrow tabernacle divided into three sections; the upper, western, section is inscribed ארון "Ark", and along two sides עשר "ten [amot]". The next largest section, partly separated from the other two, is divided into two parts; the upper part is inscribed פרכת "veil" and below it מזבח "altar".## The lower part inscribed vertically שלחן "table" and below it מנורה "Menorah". In the lower, eastern, section is inscribed מסך "hanging". The northern and southern walls of the tabernacle are inscribed outside: עשרים קרש "twenty boards".## The laver is placed outside the Tabernacle, inscribed at its bottom right כיור וכנו "laver and its stand".

The orientation of the Tabernacle and its court is inscribed on three sides: South פאת נגבה ("southward side" Ex.27:9) on the left, north ארך צפון ("northern length") on the right, and east קדמה, מזרחה ("east side eastward" Ex. 27:13) at the bottom.## The length of the Tabernacle court is a hundred amah.## Inscribed on the southern side: מאה אורך "a hundred length" (Ex. 27:11) and below the Tabernacle: אורך החצר מאה באמה "the length of the court a hundred amah" (Ex. 27:18). Its width is fifty amah. Above the western side of the Tabernacle, inscribed twice: כ אמה "twenty amah". Below the eastern side inscribed: ורוחב חמישים בחמישים "and the breadth fifty everywhere" (Ex. 27:18).

The gate of the court, on the eastern side, is inscribed: שער החצר "the gate of the court" (Ex. 27:16). It is flanked by hangings, inscribed: לכתף "on the side" לכתף קלעים "hanging on the side" (incorrectly quoting from Ex. 27:14-15).
