Exodus 37

CHAPTER 37

The Ark

And Bezaleel made the ark from [2wood 1incorruptible]; two cubits and a half was the length, and a cubit and a half was the width, and a cubit and a half was the height. And he gilded it [2gold 1in pure] from inside and from outside. And he made for it a waved border twisted of gold round about. And he cast for it four [2rings 1golden] upon [2four 3sides 1its]. Two rings upon the [2side 1one], and two rings upon the [2side 1second]. And he made bearing poles of [2wood 1incorruptible], and he gilded them with gold. And he inserted the bearing poles into the rings, the ones on the sides of the ark, to lift the ark by them. And he made the atonement-seat lid [2gold 1of pure]. Two cubits and a half was the length, and a cubit and a half was the width. And he made two cherubim wrought in gold. And he put them at both of the sides of the atonement-seat. [2cherub 1One] at this side, and [2cherub 1one] at the [2side 1second] of the atonement-seat. And he made the two cherubim upon [2two 3sides 1its]. And [4were 1the 2two 3cherubim] stretching out the wings above, overshadowing with their wings over the atonement-seat, their faces to one another -- to the atonement-seat were the faces of the cherubim. 10 And he made the table from [2wood 1incorruptible]. Two cubits was the width, and a cubit the breadth, and a cubit and a half the height. 11 And he gilded it [2gold 1in pure]. 12 And he made for it a twisted [2waved border 1golden] round about. And he made for it a rim -- a palm's width round about. And he made a twisted waved border round about the rim. 13 And he cast for it four [2rings 1golden]. And he placed the four rings upon the four parts by its feet. 14 By the waved border rim were the rings for a holder to the bearing poles, so as to lift the table. 15 And he made the bearing poles of [2wood 1incorruptible], and he gilded them with gold so as to lift the table. 16 And he made the utensils for the table, both its saucers, and the incense pans, and the cups, and the libation bowls in which the priest will offer libations in them, [2gold 1made of pure]. 17 And he made the lamp-stand of [2gold 1pure]; a turned piece he made the lamp-stand. Its stem, and the branches, and the basins, and the knobs, and the lilies [2of 3it 1were]. 18 And six branches were going forth sideways -- three branches of the lamp-stand from out of [3side 1its 2one], and three branches of the lamp-stand from the [2side 1second]. 19 And three basins being shaped nut-like were on the one branch, with a knob and lily; and three basins being shaped nut-like on the one branch with a knob and a lily; thus to the six branches, to the ones going forth from the lamp-stand. 20 And on the lamp-stand were four basins being shaped nut-like to the one branch, with the knobs, and its lilies. 21 The knob under the two branches of it, and a knob under the two branches of it, thus to the six branches, to the ones going forth from out of the lamp-stand. 22 And the branches, and the knobs of it were entirely turned from out of one piece [2gold 1of pure]. 23 And he made [3lamps 1its 2seven], and its tongs, and their oil funnels -- [2gold 1of pure]. 24 A talent [2gold 1of pure] he made all its items. 25 And he made an altar of incense from out of [2wood 1incorruptible]. A cubit was the length of it; and a cubit was the breadth of it, four-cornered; and two cubits was the height of it; of it were its horns. 26 And he gilded it [2gold 1with pure], its grate, and its walls, and its horns. And he made for it a twisted [2rim 1gold] round about. 27 And two rings [2gold 1of pure] he made for it under [3rim 2twisted 1its] for [2two 3corners 1its] on [2two 3sides 1its] for holders for the bearing poles to lift it by them. 28 And he made the bars out of [2wood 1incorruptible]; and he gilded them with gold. 29 And he prepared the oil for the anointing the holy, and the composition of the incense, a pure work of a perfumer.
