Shemot - Exodus 25
1And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying:
2‘Speak unto the children of Israel, that they take for Me an offering; of every man whose heart maketh him willing ye shall take My offering.
3And this is the offering which ye shall take of them: gold, and silver, and brass;
4and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair;
5and rams’ skins dyed red, and sealskins, and acacia-wood;
6oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense;
7onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate.
8And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.
9According to all that I show thee, the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the furniture thereof, even so shall ye make it.
10And they shall make an ark of acacia-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.
11And 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.
12And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four feet thereof; and two rings shall be on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.
13And thou shalt make staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold.
14And thou shalt put the staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, wherewith to bear the ark.
15The staves shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it.
16And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.
17And thou shalt make an ark-cover of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
18And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold; of beaten work shalt thou make them, at the two ends of the ark-cover.
19And make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end; of one piece with the ark-cover shall ye make the cherubim of the two ends thereof.
20And the cherubim shall spread out their wings on high, screening the ark-cover with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the ark-cover shall the faces of the cherubim be.
21And thou shalt put the ark-cover 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 speak with thee from above the ark-cover, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
23And thou shalt make a table of acacia-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 a handbreadth 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.
27Close by the border shall the rings be, for places for the staves to bear the table.
28And thou shalt make the staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.
29And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and the pans thereof, and the jars thereof, and the bowls thereof, wherewith to pour out; of pure gold shalt thou make them.
30And thou shalt set upon the table showbread before Me alway.
31And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made, even its base, and its shaft; its cups, its knops, and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it.
32And there shall be six branches going out of the sides thereof: three branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the candle-stick out of the other side thereof;
33three cups made like almond-blossoms in one branch, a knop and a flower; and three cups made like almond-blossoms in the other branch, a knop and a flower; so for the six branches going out of the candlestick.
34And in the candlestick four cups made like almond-blossoms, the knops thereof, and the flowers thereof.
35And a knop under two branches of one piece with it, and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, for the six branches going out of the candlestick.
36Their knops and their branches shall be of one piece with it; the whole of it one beaten work of pure gold.
37And thou shalt make the lamps thereof, seven; and they shall light the lamps thereof, to give light over against it.
38And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold.
39Of a talent of pure gold shall it be made, with all these vessels.
40And see that thou make them after their pattern, which is being shown thee in the mount.
