Exodus 25

CHAPTER 25

First-fruits and the Sanctuary

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel! And take to me first-fruits of all the things which seem good in the heart! You shall take the first-fruits of mine. And this is the first-fruit which you shall take of them -- gold, silver, brass, blue, purple, scarlet doubled up, and linen being twined, and hairs of goats, and skins of rams being dyed red, and skins of blue, and [2wood 1incorruptible], and oil for the giving light, incenses for the oil of the anointing, and for the composition of the incense, and stones of sardius, and stones for the carving for the shoulder-piece, and the foot length robe. And you shall make for me a sanctuary, and I will be seen by you. And you shall make for me according to all as much as I show you in the mountain -- the model of the tent, and the model of all the items of it -- even so shall you do.

The Ark

10 And you shall make an ark of testimony from out of [2wood 1incorruptible] -- two cubits and a half the length, and a cubit and a half the width, and a cubit and a half the height. 11 And you shall gild it [2gold 1with pure]; from inside and from outside you shall gild it. And you shall make for it a waved border of gold, twisted round about. 12 And you shall forge for it four rings of gold; and you shall place them upon the four sides, two rings upon the [2side 1one], and two rings upon the [2side 1second]. 13 And you shall make bearing poles from [2wood 1incorruptible], and you shall gild them with gold. 14 And you shall bring the bearing poles into the rings, the ones on the sides of the ark, to lift the ark by them. 15 In the rings of the ark of the covenant [3will be 1the 2bearing poles] fixed. 16 And you shall put into the ark the testimonies which ever I give to you. 17 And you shall make an atonement-seat, a lid [2gold 1of pure]; two cubits and a half is the length, and a cubit and a half the width. 18 And you shall make two cherubim wrought in gold, and you shall place them at both of the sides of the atonement-seat. 19 You shall make [2cherub 1one] from out of this one side, and [2cherub 1one] from out of [3side 1the 2second] of the atonement-seat. Thus you shall make the two cherubim upon the two sides. 20 [4will be 1The 2two 3cherubim] stretching out the wings on top, overshadowing with their wings above the atonement-seat, and their faces to one another; [6towards 7the 8atonement-seat 5will be 1the 2faces 3of the 4cherubim]. 21 And you shall place the atonement-seat upon the ark from above. And into the ark you shall put the testimonies which I shall give to you. 22 And I will be known to you from there, and I will speak to you from above the atonement-seat between the two cherubim being upon the ark of the testimony, according to all as much as I give charge to you for the sons of Israel.

The Table of the Bread Loaves

23 And you shall make a table of [2woods 1incorruptible], of two cubits being the length, and a cubit the breadth, and a cubit and a half the height. 24 And you shall gild it [2gold 1in pure]. And you shall make for it a twisted waved border of gold round about. And you shall make for it a rim of a palm width round about. 25 And you shall make a twisted waved border on the rim round about. 26 And you shall make for it four rings of gold, and you shall place the four rings upon the four parts of its feet under the rim. 27 And [3shall be 1the 2rings] for holders for the bearing poles, so as to lift [1the 2table]. 28 And you shall make the bearing poles from out of [2woods 1incorruptible]. And you shall gild them [2gold 1with pure]. And [3shall be lifted 4by 5them 1the 2table]. 29 And you shall make its saucers, and the incense pans, and the libation bowls, and the cups, in which you shall offer a libation in them; [2gold 1of pure] you shall make them. 30 And you shall place upon the table bread loaves face to face before me always.

The Lampstand

31 And you shall make a lamp-stand from out of [2gold 1pure]; a turned piece you shall make the lamp-stand. Its stem, and the branches, and the basins, and the knobs, and the lilies [2of 3it 1will be]. 32 And six branches going forth sideways -- three branches of the lamp-stand from out of the [2side 1one], and three branches of the lamp-stand from the [2side 1second]. 33 And three basins being shaped nut-like on the one branch, with a knob and a lily; thus to the six branches of the ones going forth from out of the lamp-stand. 34 And in the lamp-stand, four basins being shaped nut-like. To the one branch, the knobs, and its lilies. 35 And the knob under the two branches from out of it, and a knob under the other two branches from out of it, thus to the six branches -- to the ones going forth from out of the lamp-stand. 36 The knobs and the branches from out of it -- let them be entirely turned from out of one piece [2gold 1of pure]. 37 And you shall make [3lamps 1its 2seven]. And you shall place its lamps. And they shall shine forth from the one before it. 38 And its funnel, and its underparts from out of [2gold 1pure]. 39 A talent [2gold 1of pure] you shall make all these items. 40 See that you should make according to the impression being shown to you on the mountain!
