1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2Speak to the children of Israel, and take firstfruits of all, who may be disposed in their heart to give; and ye shall take my firstfruits.
3And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold and silver and brass,
4and blue, and purple, and double scarlet, and fine spun linen, and goats’ hair,
5and rams’ skins dyed red, and blue skins, and incorruptible wood,
6and oil for the light, incense for anointing oil, and for the composition of incense,
7and sardius stones, and stones for the carved work of the breastplate, and the full-length robe.
8And thou shalt make me a sanctuary, and I will appear among you.
9And thou shalt make for me according to all things which I show thee in the mountain; even the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all its furniture: so shalt thou make it.
10And thou shalt make the ark of testimony of incorruptible wood; the length of two cubits and a half, and the breadth of a cubit and a half, and the height of a cubit and a half.
11And thou shalt gild it with pure gold, thou shalt gild it within and without; and thou shalt make for it golden wreaths twisted round about.
12And thou shalt cast for it four golden rings, and shalt put them on the four sides; two rings on the one side, and two rings on the other side.
13And thou shalt make staffs of incorruptible wood, and shalt gild them with gold.
14And thou shalt put the staffs into the rings on the sides of the ark, to bear the ark with them.
15The staffs shall remain fixed in the rings of the ark.
16And thou shalt put into the ark the testimonies which I shall give thee.
17And thou shalt make a propitiatory, a lid of pure gold; the length of two cubits and a half, and the breadth of a cubit and a half.
18And thou shalt make two cherubs graven in gold, and thou shalt put them on both sides of the propitiatory.
19They shall be made, one cherub on this side, and another cherub on the other side of the propitiatory; and thou shalt make the two cherubs on the two sides.
20The cherubs shall stretch forth their wings above, overshadowing the propitiatory with their wings; and their faces shall be toward each other, the faces of the cherubs shall be toward the propitiatory.
21And thou shalt set the propitiatory on the ark above, and thou shalt put into the ark the testimonies which I shall give thee.
22And I will make myself known to thee from thence, and I will speak to thee above the propitiatory between the two cherubs, which are upon the ark of testimony, even in all things which I shall charge thee concerning the children of Israel.
23And thou shalt make a golden table of pure gold, in length two cubits, and in breadth a cubit, and in height a cubit and a half.
24And thou shalt make for it golden wreaths twisted round about, and thou shalt make for it a crown of a handbreadth round about.
25And thou shalt make a twisted wreath for the crown round about.
26And thou shalt make four golden rings; and thou shalt put the four rings upon the four parts of its feet under the crown.
27And the rings shall be for bearings for the staffs, that they may bear the table with them.
28And thou shalt make the staffs of incorruptible wood, and thou shalt gild them with pure gold; and the table shall be borne with them.
29And thou shalt make its dishes and its censers, and its bowls, and its cups, with which thou shalt offer drink offerings: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
30And thou shalt set upon the table showbread before me continually.
31And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold; thou shalt make the candlestick of graven work: its stem and its branches, and its bowls and its knops and its lilies shall be of one piece.
32And six branches proceeding sideways, three branches of the candlestick from one side of it, and three branches of the candlestick from the other side.
33And three bowls fashioned like almonds, on each branch a knop and a lily; so to the six branches proceeding from the candlestick,
34and in the candlestick four bowls fashioned like almonds, in each branch knops and the flowers of the same.
35A knop under two branches out of it, and a knop under four branches out of it; so to the six branches proceeding from the candlestick; and in the candlestick four bowls fashioned like almonds.
36Let the knops and the branches be of one piece, altogether graven of one piece of pure gold.
37And thou shalt make its seven lamps: and thou shalt set on it the lamps, and they shall shine from one front.
38And thou shalt make its funnel and its snuff dishes of pure gold.
39All these articles shall be a talent of pure gold.
40See, thou shalt make them according to the pattern shown thee in the mount.
