1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2"Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring Me an offering. From every man who giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take My offering. 3And this is the offering which ye shall take from them: gold and silver and brass; 4and blue and purple and scarlet, and fine linen and goats' hair; 5and rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood; 6oil for the light, spices for anointing oil and for sweet incense; 7onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod and in the breastplate. 8And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. 9According to all that I show thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it. 10"And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 11And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold; within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about. 12And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and 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 put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them. 15The staves shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it. 16And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee. 17"And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. 18And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold; of beaten work shalt thou make them at the two ends of the mercy seat. 19And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end; even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. 20And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another. Toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. 21And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. 22And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the Testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel. 23"Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 24And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about. 25And thou shalt make unto it a border of a handbreadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown for the border thereof round about. 26And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof. 27Over against the border shall the rings be for places for the staves to bear the table. 28And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them. 29And thou shalt make the dishes thereof and spoons thereof and covers thereof and bowls thereof for pouring; of pure gold shalt thou make them. 30And thou shalt set upon the table showbread before Me always. 31"And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold; of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft and his branches, his bowls, his buds, and his flowers shall be of the same. 32And six branches shall come out of the sides of it: three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side. 33Three bowls made like unto almonds with a bud and a flower on one branch, and three bowls made like almonds on the other branch with a bud and a flower -- so for the six branches that come out of the candlestick. 34And on the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their buds and their flowers. 35And there shall be a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, and a bud under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick. 36Their buds and their branches shall be of the same. All of it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. 37And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof; and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over the face of it. 38And the tongs thereof and the snuff dishes thereof shall be of pure gold; 39of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. 40And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shown thee on the mount.
