Exodus 38

CLV(i) 1 Then he made the altar of ascent offering of acacia boards, five cubits its length and five cubits its width. It was square, and its rise was three cubits. 2 He made its horns on its four corners; its horns were of one piece with it. And he overlaid it with copper. 3 He also made all the furnishings of the altar, the pots and the shovels and the sprinkling bowls, the flesh-hooks and the fire-pans; all its furnishings he made of copper. 4 He made for the altar a grate, a handiwork of a copper net, beneath its encompassment from below unto its middle. 5 And he cast four rings on the four ends of the copper grate as housings for the poles. 6 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with copper. 7 And he inserted the poles in the rings on the angle walls of the altar to carry it with them. Hollow, of planks he made it. 8 Then he made the laver of copper and its post of copper, from the mirrors of the women stationed for service who enlisted at the portal of the tent of appointment. 9 Then he made the court: for the edge of the Negev southward the slung-sheets of the court were of corded cambric, a hundred cubits, 10 with their twenty columns and their twenty sockets of copper, the hooks of the columns and their connections of silver;" 11 and for the north edge a hundred cubits, with their twenty columns and their twenty sockets of copper, the hooks of the columns and their connections of silver. 12 For the seaward edge, the slung-sheets were fifty cubits with their ten columns and their ten sockets, the hooks of the columns and their connections of silver;" 13 and for the eastward edge toward the sunrise, fifty cubits. 14 Slung-sheets of fifteen cubits were for the one flank with their three columns and their three sockets, 15 and for the second flank on this side and on that side of the gate of the court, slung-sheets of fifteen cubits with their three columns and their three sockets. 16 All the slung-sheets of the court round about were of corded cambric. 17 The sockets for the columns were of copper, the hooks of the columns and their connections of silver; and the overlay of their heads with silver. And they, all the columns of the court, were connected with silver. 18 The portiere of the court gate was the handiwork of an embroiderer in blue, purple, double-dipped crimson and corded cambric. Twenty cubits was the length, and the rise in the width was five cubits, to correspond with the slung-sheets of the court. 19 Their columns were four and their sockets four, of copper, their hooks of silver and the overlay of their heads and their connections of silver. 20 All the pegs for the tabernacle and for the court round about were copper. 21 These are the notations as to the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony, which were noted down at the bidding of Moses, a service of the Levites under the hand of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest. 22 Bezalel son of Uri son of Hur of the stock of Judah made all that Yahweh had instructed Moses. 23 With him was Aholiab son of Ahisamach of the stock of Dan, an artificer and brocade designer and embroiderer in blue, in purple, in double-dipped crimson and in cambric. 24 All the gold which was used for the work in all the work of the holy place, namely the gold of the wave offering, came to be twenty-nine talents and seven hundred thirty shekels by the shekel of the holy place. 25 The silver of those of the congregation who were mustered was a hundred talents and a thousand seven hundred seventy-five shekels by the shekel of the holy place, 26 a bekah for a pole (half a shekel, by the shekel of the holy place) for everyone passing over onto those mustered from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred three thousand five hundred fifty men. 27 It came to be that the hundred talents of silver were for casting the sockets of the holy place and the sockets of the curtain, a hundred sockets to a hundred talents, a talent to a socket. 28 The thousand seven hundred seventy-five shekels he made into hooks for the columns and overlaid their heads and made connections for them. 29 The copper of the wave offering was seventy talents and two thousand four hundred shekels. 30 So he made with it the sockets of the portal of the tent of appointment, and the copper altar with the copper grate which was for it, and all the furnishings of the altar, 31 and the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of the gate of the court, and all the pegs of the tabernacle, and all the pegs of the court round about.
