Exodus - Chapter 25
1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said,
3 And this is what you will accept from them: gold, silver and bronze;
5 rams' skins dyed red, fine leather, acacia wood;
7 cornelian and other stones to be set in the ephod and breastplate.
8 Make me a sanctuary so that I can reside among them.
9 You will make it all according to the design for the Dwelling and the design for its furnishings which I shall now show you.
10 'You must make me an ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, one and a half cubits wide and one and a half cubits high.
11 You will overlay it, inside and out, with pure gold and make a gold moulding all round it.
14 and pass the shafts through the rings on the sides of the ark, by which to carry it.
16 Inside the ark you will put the Testimony which I am about to give you.
17 'You will also make a mercy-seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubits wide,
19 Model one of the winged creatures at one end and the other winged creature at the other end; you will model the winged creatures of a piece with the mercy-seat at either end.
23 'You must also make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide and one and a half cubits high.
24 You will overlay it with pure gold, and make a gold moulding all round it.
25 You will fit it with struts of a hand's breadth and make a gold moulding round the struts.
27 The rings must lie close to the struts to hold the shafts for carrying the table.
28 You must make the shafts of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. The table must be carried by these.
30 and on the table, in my presence, you will always put the loaves of permanent offering.
31 'You will also make a lamp-stand of pure gold; the lamp-stand must be of beaten gold, base and stem. Its cups, calyxes and petals, must be of a piece with it.
33 The first branch must carry three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyx and petals; the second branch, too, must carry three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyx and bud, and similarly for all six branches springing from the lampstand.
35 one calyx under the first two branches springing from the lamp-stand, one calyx under the next pair of branches and one calyx under the last pair of branches -- thus for all six branches springing from the lamp-stand.
36 The calyxes and the branches will be of a piece with the lamp-stand, and the whole made from a single piece of pure gold, beaten out.
39 You will use a talent of pure gold for the lamp-stand and all its accessories;
