1And YAHUAH spake unto Mosheh,
2 Speak unto the children of Yisrael, that they bring me an offering: of every
man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.
3 And this [is] the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and
4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' [hair],
5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,
6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,
7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.
8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
9 According 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].
10 And 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.
11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou
overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.
12 And 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.
13 And thou shalt make staves [of] shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.
14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that
the ark may be borne with them.
15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.
16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.
17 And 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 thereof.
18 And thou shalt make two cherubims [of] gold, [of] beaten work shalt thou make
them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.
19 And 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.
20 And 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.
21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou
shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
22 And 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 Yisrael.
23 Thou 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
24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold
25 And 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.
26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four
corners that [are] on the four feet thereof.
27 Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear
28 And thou shalt make the staves [of] shittim wood, and overlay them with gold,
that the table may be borne with them.
29 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers
thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: [of] pure gold shalt thou make
30 And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway.
31 And 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.
32 And 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:
33 Three 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.
34 And in the candlestick [shall be] four bowls made like unto almonds, [with]
their knops and their flowers.
35 And [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.
36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it [shall be] one
beaten work [of] pure gold.
37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps
thereof, that they may give light over against it.
38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, [shall be of] pure gold.
39 [Of] a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.
40 And look that thou make [them] after their pattern, which was shewed thee in
