Exodus 25

CLV(i) 1 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying. 2 Speak to the sons of Israel that they take for Me a heave offering. From every man whose heart is willing shall you take My heave offering. 3 And this is the heave offering which you shall take from them: gold, silver and copper, 4 blue, purple and double-dipped crimson, cambric and goats' hair, 5 reddened rams' hides and azure hides and acacia boards; 6 oil for the luminary, aromatics for the anointing oil and for the incense of spices;" 7 stones of onyx and stones for fillings for the vestment and for the breastplate. 8 Thus they will make for Me a sanctuary, and I will tabernacle in their midst. 9 According to all that I am showing you, the model of the tabernacle and the model of all its furnishings, thus shall you make it. 10 They will make the coffer of acacia boards, two cubits and a half its length and a cubit and a half its width and a cubit and a half its rise. 11 You will overlay it; with pure gold inside and outside shall you overlay it. You will make on it a flange of gold round about. 12 You will cast four rings of gold for it, and put them on its four footings with two rings on its one angle wall and two rings on its second angle wall. 13 You will make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold, 14 and insert the poles in the rings on the the angle walls of the coffer to carry the coffer with them. 15 The poles shall come to be in the rings of the coffer. They shall not be withdrawn from it. 16 You will put the testimony which I shall give to you into the coffer. 17 You will make a propitiatory shelter of pure gold, two cubits and a half its length and a cubit and a half its width. 18 You will make two cherubim of gold; you shall hammer them a stiff shell of one piece with the two ends of the propitiatory shelter. 19 Make one cherub from this end and one cherub from that end. Of one piece with the propitiatory shelter you shall make the cherubim at its two ends. 20 The cherubim will come to be with spreading wings above, overshadowing with their wings over the propitiatory shelter with their faces each to his fellow. Toward the propitiatory shelter the faces of the cherubim shall come to be. 21 Then you will put the propitiatory shelter on the coffer from above; and you shall put the testimony which I shall give to you into the coffer. 22 I will keep appointment with you there, and I will speak with you above the propitiatory shelter from between the two cherubim which are over the coffer of the testimony of all which I am instructing you for the sons of Israel. 23 You will make a table of acacia boards, two cubits its length and a cubit its width and a cubit and a half its rise. 24 You will overlay it with pure gold and make for it a flange of gold round about. 25 You will make for it a border of a handbreadth round about and make a flange of gold for its border round about. 26 You will make for it four rings of gold and put the rings on the four edges which are for its four feet. 27 The rings shall come to correspond with the border for housings for the poles, to carry the table. 28 You will make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold, and the table will be carried by them. 29 You will make its dishes and its spoons and its chalices and its waste pans with which libations are made; of pure gold shall you make them. 30 Then you will put the bread of the presence on the table before Me regularly. 31 You will make the lampstand of pure gold; of a stiff shell shall you make the lampstand, its stem and its tube; its cones, its spheres and its buds shall come out from it. 32 Six tubes shall come forth from its sides, three tubes of the lampstand from its one side and three tubes of the lampstand from its second side. 33 Three almond shaped cones shall be on the one tube, a sphere and a bud, and three almond shaped cones on the other tube, a sphere and a bud: thus for the six tubes coming forth from the lampstand;" 34 on the lampstand itself four almond shaped cones, its spheres and its buds;" 35 and a sphere under two of the tubes from it, and a sphere under two of the tubes from it, and a sphere under two of the tubes from it, so for the six tubes coming forth from the lampstand. 36 Their spheres and their tubes shall be of one piece with it, all of it of one stiff shell of pure gold. 37 You will make its seven lamps, and one will set up its lamps, so that it gives light over across its face. 38 Its snuffers and its fire-pans shall be of pure gold; 39 of a talent of pure gold shall you make it with all these furnishings. 40 And see that you make it by their model which is being shown you on the mount.
