Exodus 25

Thomson(i) 1 And the Lord spake to Moses saying, 2 Say to the children of Israel, Take offerings from all who may be willing. And these you shall take as dedications to me. 3 And this is the offering which you shall receive from them; gold and silver and brass, 4 and blue and purple and scarlet yarn, and cotton thread, and goats' hair, 5 and rams' skins dyed red, and skins of a violet colour, and incorruptible wood, 6 and oil for giving light, and spices for the anointing oil and for the compound incense, 7 and sardine stones, and stones to be engraved for the ephod and the robe which cometh down to the feet. 8 And thou shalt make a sanctuary for me and I will appear among you. 9 And thou shalt make every thing for me according to what I show thee on this mount; according to the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its utensils, so shalt thou make them. 10 Thou shalt make the Ark of the testimony of incorruptible wood; two cubits and a half, the length, and a cubit and a half, the breadth, and a cubit and a half, the height. 11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold. Within and without thou shalt overlay it. And thou shalt make for it a rim of gold welked and waved around. 12 And thou shalt beat out for it four rings of gold and fasten them to the four corners, two rings on one side and two rings on the other side. 13 And thou shalt make staves of incorruptible wood and overlay them with gold. 14 And thou shalt put the staves in the rings on the sides of the ark, that with them the ark may be carried. 15 The staves shall remain immoveably in the rings of the ark. 16 And thou shalt deposit in the ark the testimonies which I give thee. 17 And thou shalt make a propitiatory; a lid of pure gold, two cubits and a half, the length; and a cubit and a half, the breadth. 18 And thou shalt make two cherubs of turned gold, and place them at the two sides of the propitiatory. 19 They shall be made, one cherub at one side, and the other cherub at the other side of the propitiatory. Thou shalt make the two cherubs at the two sides; 20 and the cherubs shall have their wings stretched forth above and shall overshadow the propitiatory with their wings; and their faces shall be towards each other. The faces of the cherubs shall be towards the propitiatory. 21 And thou shalt put the propitiatory upon the ark; and into the ark thou shalt put the testimonies which I give thee. 22 And there I will make myself known to thee and speak to thee from above the propitiatory, from between the two cherubs which are on the ark of the testimony, touching all that I give thee in charge to the children of Israel. 23 Thou shalt also make a golden table of pure gold; two cubits long; and one cubit broad; and a cubit and a half high: 24 And thou shalt make for it a rim of gold, welked and waved around: 25 And thou shalt make for it a border of a hand breadth all around, and to the border thou shalt make a welked wave all around: 26 And thou shalt make four rings of gold and fasten the four rings to the four sides of its feet under the border. 27 And the rings shall be for places to hold the staves so that with them they may carry the table. 28 And thou shalt make the staves of incorruptible wood and overlay them with pure gold, and with them the table shall be carried. 29 And thou shalt make its plates and its incense vessels and its libation vessels and the cups with which thou shalt pour out libations, all of pure gold. 30 And on this table thou shalt lay the loaves which are to be in my presence before me continually. 31 Thou shalt make also a candlestick of pure gold. Thou shalt make it a turned work. Its shaft and its branches and the cups and the knobs and the lilly ornaments shall be of one piece. 32 And from its sides there shall issue six branches; three branches of the candlestick from one side thereof, and three branches of the candlestick from the other side, 33 with three cups beaten out in form of almonds, and a knob and an ornament like a lilly on each branch; and so on the six branches issuing from the candlestick: 34 and on the shaft there shall be four cups beaten out in form of almonds, and for each branch, knobs and ornaments like lillies, of the same piece; 35 the knob under the first pair of branches issuing from it; and a knob under the second pair of branches issuing from it, and so under the third pair of branches issuing from the shaft; and on the shaft four cups beaten out in form of almonds. 36 Let the knobs and the branches be of one piece. The whole must be turned out of one piece of pure gold. 37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps for it, and place the lamps so that they may give light in one row. 38 And its snuffers and its snuff dishes thou shalt make of pure gold. 39 All these utensils shall be a talent of pure gold. 40 See that thou make them according to the pattern shewn thee on this mount.
