Exod 25-26:20

Offerings for the Tabernacle 1The Lord said to Moses:2Tell the Israelites to take for me an offering; from all whose hearts prompt them to give you shall receive the offering for me.3This is the offering that you shall receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze,4blue, purple, and crimson yarns and fine linen, goats' hair,5tanned rams' skins, fine leather, acacia wood,6oil for the lamps, spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense,7onyx stones and gems to be set in the ephod and for the breastpiece.8And have them make me a sanctuary, so that I may dwell among them.9In accordance with all that I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.The Ark of the Covenant 10They shall make an ark of acacia wood; it shall be two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.11You shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and outside you shall overlay it, and you shall make a molding of gold upon it all around.12You shall cast four rings of gold for it and put them on its four feet, two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side.13You shall make poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.14And you shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, by which to carry the ark.15The poles shall remain in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it.16You shall put into the ark the covenant! that I shall give you.17Then you shall make a mercy seat! of pure gold; two cubits and a half shall be its length, and a cubit and a half its width.18You shall make two cherubim of gold; you shall make them of hammered work, at the two ends of the mercy seat.19Make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other; of one piece with the mercy seat you shall make the cherubim at its two ends.20The cherubim shall spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings. They shall face one to another; the faces of the cherubim shall be turned toward the mercy seat.21You shall put the mercy seat on the top of the ark; and in the ark you shall put the covenant that I shall give you.22There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the covenant, I will deliver to you all my commands for the Israelites.The Table for the Bread of the Presence 23You shall make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.24You shall overlay it with pure gold, and make a molding of gold around it.25You shall make around it a rim a handbreadth wide, and a molding of gold around the rim.26You shall make for it four rings of gold, and fasten the rings to the four corners at its four legs.27The rings that hold the poles used for carrying the table shall be close to the rim.28You shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, and the table shall be carried with these.29You shall make its plates and dishes for incense, and its flagons and bowls with which to pour drink offerings; you shall make them of pure gold.30And you shall set the bread of the Presence on the table before me always.The Lampstand 31You shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The base and the shaft of the lampstand shall be made of hammered work; its cups, its calyxes, and its petals shall be of one piece with it;32and there shall be six branches going out of its sides, three branches of the lampstand out of one side of it and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side of it;33three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with calyx and petals, on one branch, and three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with calyx and petals, on the other branch—so for the six branches going out of the lampstand.34On the lampstand itself there shall be four cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyxes and petals.35There shall be a calyx of one piece with it under the first pair of branches, a calyx of one piece with it under the next pair of branches, and a calyx of one piece with it under the last pair of branches—so for the six branches that go out of the lampstand.36Their calyxes and their branches shall be of one piece with it, the whole of it one hammered piece of pure gold.37You shall make the seven lamps for it; and the lamps shall be set up so as to give light on the space in front of it.38Its snuffers and trays shall be of pure gold.39It, and all these utensils, shall be made from a talent of pure gold.40And see that you make them according to the pattern for them, which is being shown you on the mountain.Chapter 26The Tabernacle 1Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen, and blue, purple, and crimson yarns; you shall make them with cherubim skillfully worked into them.2The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall be of the same size.3Five curtains shall be joined to one another; and the other five curtains shall be joined to one another.4You shall make loops of blue on the edge of the outermost curtain in the first set; and likewise you shall make loops on the edge of the outermost curtain in the second set.5You shall make fifty loops on the one curtain, and you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is in the second set; the loops shall be opposite one another.6You shall make fifty clasps of gold, and join the curtains to one another with the clasps, so that the tabernacle may be one whole.7You shall also make curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the tabernacle; you shall make eleven curtains.8The length of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; the eleven curtains shall be of the same size.9You shall join five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves, and the sixth curtain you shall double over at the front of the tent.10You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in the second set.11You shall make fifty clasps of bronze, and put the clasps into the loops, and join the tent together, so that it may be one whole.12The part that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle.13The cubit on the one side, and the cubit on the other side, of what remains in the length of the curtains of the tent, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and that side, to cover it.14You shall make for the tent a covering of tanned rams' skins and an outer covering of fine leather.The Framework 15You shall make upright frames of acacia wood for the tabernacle.16Ten cubits shall be the length of a frame, and a cubit and a half the width of each frame.17There shall be two pegs in each frame to fit the frames together; you shall make these for all the frames of the tabernacle.18You shall make the frames for the tabernacle: twenty frames for the south side;19and you shall make forty bases of silver under the twenty frames, two bases under the first frame for its two pegs, and two bases under the next frame for its two pegs;20and for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side twenty frames,
