Exodus 25

ISV(i) 1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Tell the Israelites to take an offering for me, and you shall accept my offering from every person whose heart moves him to give. 3 This is the offering that you shall accept from them: gold, silver, and bronze; 4 blue, purple, and scarlet material; fine linen and goat hair; 5 ram skins dyed red, dolphin skins, and acacia wood; 6 oil for lighting, spices for the anointing oil and for aromatic incense; 7 onyx stones, stones for setting on the ephod and the breast piece. 8 Let them make a sanctuary for me so I may dwell among them. 9 This is how you shall make it: according to all that I'm showing you, according to the pattern for the tabernacle and the pattern for all its furnishings." 10 "They shall make an ark of acacia wood, 45 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 27 inches high. 11 You shall overlay it with pure gold {— } you shall overlay it inside and outside {— } and you shall make a gold molding around it. 12 You shall cast four rings for it and put them on its four feet, two rings on one side of it and two rings on its other side. 13 You shall make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. 14 You shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark with which to carry it. 15 The poles are to remain in the rings of the ark and are not to be removed from it. 16 You shall put the Testimony that I will give you into the ark. 17 "You shall make a Mercy Seat of pure gold, 45 inches long and 27 inches wide. 18 You shall make two cherubim of gold; you shall make them of hammered work at the two ends of the Mercy Seat. 19 Place one cherub at one end and one cherub at the other end. You shall make the cherubim at the two ends of the Mercy Seat, and of one piece with it. 20 The cherubim shall spread their wings upward, covering the Mercy Seat with their wings and facing each other. The faces of the cherubim shall be turned toward the Mercy Seat. 21 You shall put the Mercy Seat on top of the ark, and put the Testimony that I'll give you into the ark. 22 I'll meet with you there, and I'll tell you all my commandments for the Israelites from above the Mercy Seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the Ark of the Testimony." 23 "You shall make a table of acacia wood, three feet long, a foot and a half wide, and 27 inches high. 24 You shall overlay it with pure gold, and put a gold molding around it. 25 You shall make a three-inch wide rim around it, and you shall make a gold molding around the rim. 26 You shall make four gold rings for it, and put the rings on the four corners where its four feet are. 27 The rings shall be close to the rim as holders for the poles to carry the table. 28 You shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold so the table can be carried with them. 29 You shall make its plates, dishes, jars, and bowls from which libations will be poured, and you shall make them of pure gold. 30 You shall put the bread of the Presence on the table before me continually." 31 "You shall make a lamp stand of pure gold: the lamp stand and its base and stem shall be of hammered work, and its cups, calyxes, and flowers shall be of one piece with it. 32 Six branches shall extend from its sides, three branches of the lamp stand from one side of it and three branches of the lamp stand from its other side. 33 Three cups shaped like almond blossoms with calyxes and flowers shall be on one branch and three cups shaped like almond blossoms with calyxes and flowers shall be on the other branch, and so for the six branches extending from the lamp stand. 34 "On the lamp stand itself there shall be four cups shaped like almond blossoms with their calyxes and flowers. 35 A calyx shall be under the two branches that extend out of the stem; a calyx shall be under the next pair of branches that extend out of the stem; and a calyx shall be under the last pair of branches that extend out of the stem, and so for the six branches extending from the lamp stand. 36 Their calyxes and their branches shall be of one piece with it; all of it shall be made of one piece of hammered work of pure gold. 37 "You shall make seven lamps for it, and its lamps shall be mounted so as to give light in front of it. 38 Its tongs and trays shall be of pure gold. 39 The lamp stand and all its furnishings shall be made from a talent of pure gold. 40 Now see that you make them according to the pattern for them which you are being shown on the mountain."
