Exodus 26:1

Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of skillful work shall you make them.
Read Chapter 26

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Twisted, for greater strength, with double threads. (Du Hamel) Diversified Hebrew, "cherubim wrought by a skilful workman. "A cherubic work is one extremely diversified, and wonderful; representing birds, flowers, monsters; either in gold, wood, painting, or tapestry. When it is done with a needle, it is styled rokom, "feathers "(plumarium opus.) But when the variety of colours is done with the loom, being more ingenious, the Hebrew call it éssob, "of an inventor. "Such were these curtains.

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
Surely no access to the heavenly city is given us if we do not keep the love of God and neighbor in this church, which because it is outside is called a porch. This is why it was ordered that the curtains of the tabernacle be woven from scarlet cloth twice dyed. You, my friends, you are the curtains of the tabernacle, since by your faith you veil the heavenly secrets in your hearts. Scarlet twice dyed must be used for the curtains of the tabernacle. Scarlet has the look of fire, and what is love but fire? This love must be twice dyed, dyed by love of God and dyed by love of our neighbor.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
