38 Exodus

1 He made the altar of whole-offering of acacia-wood, square, five cubits long by five cubits broad and three cubits high.

Making the alter of burnt offerings. - Ex.27.1-8
2 Its horns at the four corners were of one piece with it, and he overlaid it with bronze.
3 He made all the vessels for the altar, its pots, shovels, tossing bowls, forks, and firepans, all of bronze.
4 He made for the altar a grating of bronze network under the ledge, coming half-way up.
5 He cast four rings for the four corners of the bronze grating to receive the poles,
6 and he made the poles of acacia-wood and overlaid them with bronze.
7 He inserted the poles in the rings at the sides of the altar to carry it. He left the altar a hollow shell.

8 The basin and its stand of bronze he made out of the bronze mirrors of the women who were on duty at the entrance to the Tent of the Presence.

Making the ablution basin. - Ex.30.18
9 He made the court. For the south side facing southwards the hangings of the court were of finely woven linen a hundred cubits long,

The Tabernacle enclosure. - Ex.27.9-19
10 with twenty posts and twenty sockets of bronze; the hooks and bands on the posts were of silver.
11 Along the north side there were hangings of a hundred cubits, with twenty posts and twenty sockets of bronze; the hooks and bands on the posts were of silver.
12 On the west side there were hangings fifty cubits long, with ten posts and ten sockets; the hooks and bands on the posts were of silver.
13 On the east side, towards the sunrise, fifty cubits,
14 (14-15) there were hangings on either side of the gateway of the court; they extended fifteen cubits to one corner, with their three posts and their three sockets, and fifteen cubits to the second corner, with their three posts and their three sockets.
16 The hangings of the court all round were of finely woven linen.
17 The sockets for the posts were of bronze, the hooks and bands on the posts of silver, the tops of them overlaid with silver, and all the posts of the court were bound with silver.
18 The screen at the gateway of the court was of finely woven linen, embroidered with violet, purple, and scarlet, twenty cubits long and five cubits high to correspond to the hangings of the court,
19 with four posts and four sockets of bronze, their hooks of silver, and the tops of them and their bands overlaid with silver.
20 All the pegs for the Tabernacle and those for the court were of bronze.

21 These were the appointments of the Tabernacle, that is the Tabernacle of the Tokens which was assigned by Moses to the charge of the Levites under Ithamar son of Aaron the priest.

The list of metals used.
22 Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah made everything the LORD had commanded Moses.

23 He was assisted by Aholiab son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, a seamster, and an embroiderer in fine linen with violet, purple, and scarlet yarn.

24 The gold of the special gift used for the work of the sanctuary amounted in all to twenty-nine talents seven hundred and thirty shekels, by the sacred standard.
25 The silver contributed by the community when registered was one hundred talents one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five shekels, by the sacred standard.

26 This amounted to a beka a head, that is half a shekel by the sacred standard, for every man from twenty years old and upwards, who had been registered, a total of six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty men.
27 The hundred talents of silver were for casting the sockets for the sanctuary and for the Veil, a hundred sockets to a hundred talents, a talent to a socket.
28 With the one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five shekels he made hooks for the posts, overlaid the tops of the posts and put bands round them.
29 The bronze of the special gift came to seventy talents two thousand four hundred shekels,
30 with this he made sockets for the entrance to the Tent of the Presence, the bronze altar and its bronze grating, all the vessels for the altar,
31 the sockets all round the court, the sockets for the posts at the gateway of the court, all the pegs for the Tabernacle, and the pegs all round the court.
