Exodus 38

NSB(i) 1 He made the altar for burnt offerings out of acacia wood seven and one half feet square and four and one half feet high. 2 Then he placed a horn at each of its four corners. He made the four horns and the altar out of one piece of wood covered with copper. 3 He also made all the equipment for the altar: the pans, the shovels, the bowls, the hooks, and the fire pans. All this equipment was made of copper. 4 A copper grating was also made. It was placed under the rim of the altar, so that it reached halfway up the altar. 5 A copper ring was attached beneath the ledge at the four corners to put the poles through. 6 After that he covered two acacia wood poles with copper and 7 put them through the rings for carrying the altar, which was shaped like an open box. 8 He made the laver (basin) of copper with its base of copper, from the mirrors of the serving women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 9 He made the courtyard. The south side curtains of the courtyard were fine twisted linen, one hundred and fifty feet long. 10 The courtyard had twenty pillars, and twenty sockets, made of copper. The hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver. 11 The north side was also one hundred and fifty feet long with twenty posts and twenty copper bases. The hooks and bands on the posts were made of silver. 12 The west side was seventy-five feet long. It had curtains hung on ten posts set in ten bases. The hooks and bands on the posts were made of silver. 13 The entrance was on the east side. The enclosure was also twenty-five yards wide. 14 The curtains for the gate were twenty-two and one half feet long, with their three pillars and their three sockets, 15 There were seven and one half yards of curtains with three posts and three bases on each side of the entrance. 16 The curtains around the courtyard were all made out of fine linen yarn. 17 The bases for the posts were made of copper. The hooks and bands on the posts were made of silver. The tops of the posts were covered with silver. And the bands on all the posts of the courtyard were made of silver. 18 The screen for the entrance to the courtyard was made of violet, purple, and bright red yarn embroidered on fabric made from fine linen yarn. It was thirty feet long and seven and one half feet high, just like the curtains of the courtyard. 19 The screen hung on four posts set in four copper bases. The hooks and bands on the posts were made of silver. The tops of the posts were covered with silver. 20 The pegs for the tent and the surrounding courtyard were made of copper. 21 This is the inventory of the tent, the Tent of Testimony. An inventory was ordered by Moses and carried out by the Levites under the direction of Ithamar, son of the priest Aaron. 22 Bezalel, son of Uri and grandson of Hur, from the tribe of Judah, made everything Jehovah commanded Moses. 23 Bezalel was a jeweler, carpenter, designer, and he knew how to embroider violet, purple, and bright red yarn on fine linen. His assistant was Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, from the tribe of Dan. 24 All the gold from the offerings presented to Jehovah used in building the holy place weighed over two thousand one hundred and ninety three pounds using the standard weight of the holy place. 25 The silver collected when the census of the community was taken weighed seven thousand five hundred and forty four pounds using the standard weight of the holy place. 26 This amounted to one-fifth of an ounce per person, for everyone counted who was at least twenty years old. There were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty people. 27 He used seven thousand five hundred pounds of silver to cast the one hundred bases for the holy place and the canopy. That came to seventy-five pounds per base. 28 Bezalel used forty-four pounds of silver to make the hooks and bands for the posts and the coverings for the tops of the posts. 29 The offerings presented to Jehovah weighted five thousand three hundred and ten pounds. 30 He used this to make the bases for the entrance to the tent of meeting, the copper altar with its copper grate and all its accessories, 31 the bases all around the courtyard, the bases for the entrance to the courtyard, all the pegs for the tent, and all the pegs for the surrounding courtyard.
