Exodus

Offerings.  Ex.25.1-9 - Ex.35.4-9

1THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES AND SAID: 2Tell the Israelites to set aside a contribution for me; you shall accept whatever contribution each man shall freely offer. 3This is what you shall accept: gold, silver, copper; 4violet, purple, and scarlet yarn ; fine linen and goats' hair; 5tanned rams' skins, porpoise-hides Strictly sea-cow hides, and acacia-wood, 6oil for the lamp, balsam for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense; 7cornelian and other stones ready for setting in the ephod and the breast-piece Or pouch. 8Make me a sanctuary, and I will dwell among them. 9Make it exactly according to the design I show you, the design for the Tabernacle and for all its furniture. This is how you must make it:

The Ark.  Ex.25.12-22 - Ex.37.1-9

10Make an 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. 11Overlay it with pure gold both inside and out, and put a band of gold all round it. 12Cast four gold rings for it, and fasten them to its four feet, two rings on each side. 13Make poles of acacia-wood and plate them with gold, 14and insert the poles in the rings at the sides of the Ark to lift it. 15The poles shall remain in the rings of the Ark and never be removed. 16Put into the Ark the Tokens of the Covenant Or Testimony, which I shall give you. 17Make a cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one cubit and a half wide. 18Make two gold cherubim of beaten work at the ends of the cover, 19one at each end; make each cherub of one piece with the cover. 20They shall be made with wings outspread and pointing upwards, and shall screen the cover with their wings. They shall be face to face, looking inwards over the cover. 21Put the cover above the Ark, and put into the Ark the Tokens that I shall give you. 22It is there that I shall meet you, and from above the cover, between the two cherubim over the Ark of the Tokens, I shall deliver to you all my commands for the Israelites.

The table for the show-bread.  Ex.25.23-30 - Ex.37.10-16

23Make a table of acacia-wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide, and one cubit and a half high. 24Overlay it with pure gold, and put a band of gold all round it. 25Make a rim round it a hand's breadth wide, and a gold band round the rim. 26Make four gold rings for the table, and put the rings at the four corners by the legs. 27The rings, which are to receive the poles for carrying the table, must be adjacent to the rim. 28Make the poles of acacia-wood and plate them with gold; they are to be used for carrying the table. 29Make its dishes and saucers, and its flagons and bowls from which drink-offerings may be poured: make them of pure gold. 30Put the Bread of the Presence Or Shewbread on the table, to be always before me.

The lamp-stand.  Ex.25.31-40 - Ex.37.17-24

31Make a lamp-stand of pure gold. The lamp-stand, stem and branches, shall be of beaten work, its cups, both calyxes and petals, shall be of one piece with it. 32There are to be six branches springing from its sides; three branches of the lamp-stand shall spring from the one side and three branches from the other side. 33There shall be 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. 34On the main stem of the lamp-stand there are to be four cups shaped like almond blossoms, with calyx and petals, 35and there shall be calyxes of one piece with it under the six branches which spring from the lamp-stand, a single calyx under each pair of branches. 36The calyxes and the branches are to be of one piece with it, all a single piece of beaten work of pure gold. 37Make seven lamps for this and mount them to shed light over the space in front of it. 38Its tongs and firepans shall be of pure gold. 39The lamp-stand and all these fittings shall be made from one talent of pure gold, 40See that you work to the design which you were shown on the mountain.
