Exodus 251And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2Speak to the children of Israel, and take the firstfruits from all, who may be disposed in their heart to give; and you shall take My firstfruits. 3And this is the offering which you shall take of them: gold, silver and brass; 4blue, purple, and double scarlet; fine spun linen, and goats' hair; 5rams' skins dyed red, blue skins, and incorruptible wood; 6and oil for the light, incense for anointing oil, for the composition of incense, 7and sardius stones, and stones for the carved work of the breastplate, and the full-length robe. 8And you shall make Me a sanctuary, and I will appear among you. 9And you shall make for Me according to all things which I show you in the mountain; even the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all its furniture: so shall you make it. 10And you shall make the Ark of Testimony of incorruptible wood; the length of two cubits and a half, and the breadth of a cubit and a half, and the height of a cubit and a half. 11And you shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out you shall overlay it; and you shall make for it golden wreaths twisted round about. 12And you shall cast for it four golden rings, and shall put them on the four sides; two rings on the one side, and two rings on the other side. 13And you shall make poles of incorruptible wood, and shall overlay them with gold. 14And you shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to bear the ark with them. 15The poles shall remain fixed in the rings of the ark. 16And you shall put into the ark the testimonies which I shall give you. 17And you shall make a mercy seat, a lid of pure gold; the length of two cubits and a half, and the breadth of a cubit and a half. 18And you shall make two cherubim graven in gold, and you shall put them on both sides of the mercy seat. 19They shall be made, one cherub on this side, and another cherub on the other side of the mercy seat; and you shall make the two cherubim on the two sides. 20The cherubim shall stretch forth their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings; and their faces shall be toward each other, the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat. 21And you shall set the mercy seat on the ark above, and you shall put into the ark the testimonies which I shall give you. 22And I will make Myself known to you from there, and I will speak to you from above the mercy seat between the two cherubim, which are upon the Ark of Testimony, even in all things which I shall charge you concerning the children of Israel. 23And you shall make a golden table of pure gold, in length two cubits, and in breadth a cubit, and in height a cubit and a half. 24And you shall make for it golden wreaths twisted round about, and you shall make for it a crown of an handbreadth round about. 25And you shall make a twisted wreath for the crown round about. 26And you shall make four golden rings; and you shall put the four rings upon the four parts of its feet under the crown. 27And the rings shall be for bearings for the poles, that they may bear the table with them. 28And you shall make the poles of incorruptible wood, and you shall overlay them with pure gold; and the table shall be borne with them. 29And you shall make its dishes, its censers, its bowls, and its cups, with which you shall offer drink offerings. Of pure gold shall you make them. 30And you shall set upon the table showbread before Me continually. 31And you shall make a lampstand of pure gold; you shall make the lampstand of graven work: its stem and its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and its lilies shall be of one piece. 32And six branches shall proceed out of its sides, three branches of the lampstand from one side of it, and three branches of the lampstand from the other side. 33And three bowls fashioned like almonds, on each branch a knob and a lily; so to the six branches proceeding from the lampstand, 34and in the lampstand four bowls fashioned like almonds, in each branch knobs and the flowers of the same. 35A knob under two branches out of it, and a knob under four branches out of it; so to the six branches proceeding from the lampstand; and in the lampstand four bowls fashioned like almonds. 36Let the knobs and the branches be of one piece, altogether graven of one piece of pure gold. 37And you shall make its seven lamps; and you shall set on it the lamps, and they shall shine from one front. 38And you shall make its wick-trimmers and its snuff-dishes of pure gold. 39All these articles shall be a talent of pure gold. 40See, you shall make them according to the pattern which was shown you on the mount.
