the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall
take my offering.
3And this is the offering
which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,
rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,
for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,
stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.
8And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
9According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the
instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth
thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round
12And thou shalt cast four rings of
gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the
other side of it.
13And thou shalt make staves
of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.
thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.
15The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken
16And thou shalt put into the ark
the testimony which I shall give thee.
thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth
18And thou shalt make two cherubims
of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.
19And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat
shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.
the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look
one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.
21And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony
that I shall give thee.
22And there I will
meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the
ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
23Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the
length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
24And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.
25And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about,
and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round about.
26And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on
the four feet thereof.
27Over against the
border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table.
28And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be
borne with them.
29And thou shalt make the
dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
30And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread
before me alway.
31And thou shalt make a candlestick
of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers,
shall be of the same.
32And six branches shall
come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick
out of the other side:
33Three bowls made
like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop
and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.
34And in the candlesticks shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.
35And there shall be a knop under two branches
of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches
that proceed out of the candlestick.
knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.
37And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the
lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it.
the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold.
39Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.
40And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.
