1And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2Speak unto the children of Israel, that they may bring me an offering; from every man whose heart prompteth him thereto shall ye take my offering.
3And this is the offering which ye shall take from them: gold, and silver, and copper,
4And blue, and purple, and scarlet yarn, and linen thread, and goats' hair,
5And rams' skins died red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,
6Oil for lighting, spices for the anointing oil, and for the incense of spices,
7Onyx stones, and stones for setting, for the ephod, and for the breastplate.
8And they shall make me a sanctuary; and I will dwell in the midst of them.
9In accordance with all that I show thee, the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
10And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height.
11And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it; and thou shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.
12And thou shalt cast for it four rings of gold, and put them on the four corners thereof; namely, two rings shall be on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.
13And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.
14And thou shalt place the staves into the rings, upon the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.
15In the rings of the ark shall the staves remain: they shall not be removed therefrom.
16And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I will give unto thee.
17And thou shalt make a cover of pure gold; two cubits and a half shall be its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth.
18And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, on the two ends of the cover.
19And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end; from the cover itself shall ye make the cherubim on the two ends thereof.
20And the cherubim shall be spreading forth their wings on high, overshadowing the cover with their wings, with their faces turned one to the other; toward the cover shall the faces of the cherubim be directed.
21And thou shalt put the cover above upon the ark; and in the ark shalt thou put the testimony which I will give unto thee.
22And I will meet with thee there, and I will speak with thee from above the cover, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, all that which I will command thee unto the children of Israel.
23Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood; two cubits shall be its length, and a cubit its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height.
24And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.
25And thou shalt make unto it a rim of a hand's breadth round about; and thou shalt make a golden crown on its rim round about.
26And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and thou shalt put the rings on the four corners that are on its four feet.
27Close under the rim shall the rings be; as receptacles for the staves, to bear the table.
28And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold; and the table shall be borne with them.
29And thou shalt make its dishes, and its spoons, and its supporters, and its purifying tubes, wherewith the bread is to be covered: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
30And thou shalt set upon the table show-bread before me always.
31And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made; its shaft, and its branches, its bowls, its knobs, and its flowers, shall be out of one piece with it.
32And six branches shall come out of its sides; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side.
33Three bowls, almond-shaped, shall be on one branch, with a knob and a flower; and three bowls, almond-shaped, on the other branch, with a knob and a flower: so on the six branches that come out of the candlestick.
34And on the candlestick itself shall be four bowls, almond-shaped, with its knobs and its flowers.
35And there shall be a knob under the two branches that come out of the same, and a knob under the two branches that come out of the same, and a knob under the two branches that come out of the same; for the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick.
36Their knobs and their branches shall be out of one piece with it; all of it shall be one piece of beaten work of pure gold.
37And thou shalt make its seven lamps; and when they light its lamps, it shall give light toward the body of it.
38And its tongs, and its snuff-dishes shall be of pure gold.
39Out of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.
40And look that thou make them after their pattern, which thou wast shown on the mount.
