|Exodus 37 |
1 Then Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood; two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.
2 He overlaid it with pure gold within and without and made a crown molding of gold around it.
3 And he cast four rings of gold to be set in its four corners, two rings on either side.
4 He made poles of shittim wood and overlaid them with gold.
5 And he put the poles into the rings by the sides of the ark to carry it.
6 Then he made the mercy seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long [4.5 ft] and one and a half [2.25 ft]cubit wide.
7 And he made two cherubim beaten out of one piece of gold, he made them on the two ends of the mercy seat,
8 One cherub on one end and another cherub on the other end; he made them of one piece with the mercy seat.
9 The cherubim spread out their wings on high, and covered over the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward one another, looking down toward the mercy seat.
10 He made the table of shittim wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.
11 And he overlaid it with pure gold and made a crown molding of gold around it.
12 Also he made a border of a handbreadth wide around it, and a molding of gold around the border.
13 He cast four rings of gold for it and put the rings upon the four corners that were at its four legs.
14 The rings were close to the border, holders for the poles to carry the table.
15 He made the poles of shittim wood to carry the table and overlaid them with gold.
16 And he made of pure gold the vessels that were upon the table, its plates, its dishes, its bowls, and its pitchers for pouring the drink offering.
17 He made the lamp stand of pure gold; its shaft and base were of beaten work; its bowls, buds, and its flowers were of one piece with it.
18 There were six branches going out of the sides of it, three branches of the lamp stand out of one side and three branches out of the other side;
19 Three bowls made like almond blossoms on one branch, with a bud and a flower, and three bowls made like almond blossoms on another branch, a bud and a flower; and so for the six branches going out of the lamp stand.
20 On the lamp stand itself were four bowls made like almond blossoms, with their buds and flowers.
21 One bud was under the first two branches, another bud under the second two branches, and a bud under the third two branches, for the six branches going out of it.
22 Their buds and their branches were of one piece, all of it was one beaten work of pure gold.
23 And he made of pure gold its seven lamps, its snuffers, and its trays.
24 Of a talent of pure gold he made it and all its utensils.
25 Then he made the incense altar of shittim wood; a cubit long, a cubit wide, and two cubits high; its horns were of one piece with it.
26 And he overlaid it with pure gold, the top, the sides all around, and its horns; also he made a crown molding of gold around it.
27 And he made two rings of gold for it under its molding, upon the two opposite sides of it, to be holders for the poles to carry it.
28 He made the poles of shittim wood and overlaid them with gold.
29 He also made the holy anointing oil and the pure incense of sweet spices according to the work of a perfumer.
