▼ Uncertain; possibly dolphin skins, or dugong skins; compare 26:14acacia wood, 6 f oil for the lamps g spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense, 7 onyx stones, and stones for setting, for the h ephod and for the breastpiece. 8 And let them make me a i sanctuary, that j I may dwell in their midst. 9 k Exactly as I show you concerning the pattern of the l tabernacle, and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.
