37 Exodus

1 Bezalel then made the Ark, a chest of acacia-wood, two and a half cubits long, one cubit and a half wide, and one cubit and a half high.

Making the Ark of the Covenant. - Ex.25.10-22
2 He overlaid it with pure gold, both inside and out, and put a band of gold all round it.
3 He cast four gold rings to be on its four feet, two rings on each side of it.
4 He made poles of acacia-wood and plated them with gold,
5 and inserted the poles in the rings at the sides of the Ark to lift it.
6 He made a cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one cubit and a half wide.
7 He made two gold cherubim of beaten work at the ends of the cover,
8 one at each end; he made each cherub of one piece with the cover.
9 They had wings outspread and pointing upwards, screening the cover with their wings; they stood face to face, looking inwards over the cover.

10 He made the table of acacia-wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide, and one cubit and a half high.

Making the table for the showbread. - Ex.25.23-30
11 He overlaid it with pure gold and put a band of gold all round it.
12 He made a rim round it a hand's breadth wide, and a gold band round the rim.
13 He cast four gold rings for it, and put the rings at the four corners by the four legs.
14 The rings, which were to receive the poles for carrying the table, were close to the rim.
15 These carrying-poles he made of acacia-wood and plated them with gold.
16 He made the vessels for the table, its dishes and saucers, and its flagons and bowls from which drink-offerings were to be poured; he made them of pure gold.

17 He made the lamp-stand of pure gold. The lamp-stand, stem, and branches, were of beaten work, its cups, both calyxes and petals, were of one piece with it.

Making the lampstand. - Ex.25.31-40
18 There were six branches springing from its sides, three branches of the lamp-stand sprang from one side and three branches from the other side.
19 There were three cups shaped like almond blossoms, with calyx and petals, on the first branch, three cups shaped like almond blossoms, with calyx and petals, on the next branch, and similarly for all six branches springing from the lamp-stand.
20 On the main stem of the lamp-stand there were four cups shaped like almond blossoms, with calyx and petals,
21 and there were calyxes of one piece with it under the six branches which sprang from the lamp-stand, a single calyx under each pair of branches.
22 The calyxes and the branches were of one piece with it, all a single piece of beaten work of pure gold.
23 He made its seven lamps, its tongs and firepans of pure gold.
24 The lamp-stand and all these fittings were made from one talent of pure gold.

25 He made the altar of incense of acacia-wood, square, a cubit long by a cubit broad and two cubits high, the horns of one piece with it.

Making the Altar of Incense. - Ex.30.1-5
26 He overlaid it with pure gold, the top, the sides all round, and the horns, and he put round it a band of gold.
27 He made pairs of gold rings for it; he put them under the band at the two corners on both sides to receive the poles by which it was to be carried.
28 He made the poles of acacia-wood and overlaid them with gold.

29 He prepared the sacred anointing oil and the fragrant incense, pure, compounded by the perfumer's art.

The Incense and the chrism. - Ex.30.22-38
