Offerings to Build the Tabernacle

1And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  2“Speak to the children of Israel, that they take an offering for me. From everyone whose heart makes him willing you are to take my offering.
  3This is the offering that you are to take from them: gold, silver, bronze,
  4blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, goats’ hair,
  5rams’ skins dyed red, the skins of dugongs, acacia wood,
  6oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense,
  7onyx stones, and stones to be mounted on the ephod and on the breastplate.
 

8They are to make a holy place for me, and I will dwell among them.
  9According to all that I show you, the pattern of the tabernaclea and the pattern of all of its furniture, you are to make it just like that pattern.
 

The Ark

10“They are to make an ark of acacia wood. Its length will be two and a half cubits,b its width a cubit and a half,c and a cubit and a half its height.
  11You are to overlay it with pure gold. You are to overlay it inside and outside, and you are to make a gold molding around it.
  12You are to cast four rings of gold for it and put them in its four feet, two rings will be on the one side of it and two rings on the other side of it.
  13You are to make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.
  14You are to put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry the ark.
  15The poles are to be in the rings of the ark; they must not be taken from it.
  16You are to put the testimony that I will give you into the ark.
  17“You are to make a mercy seat of pure gold. Its length is to be two and a half cubitsd and its width is to be a cubit and a half.e
  18You are to make two cherubim of hammered gold; you are to make them at the two ends of the mercy seat.
  19Make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end. You are to make the cherubim on its two ends of one piece with the mercy seat.
  20The cherubim are to spread out their wings upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward one another; the faces of the cherubim should be toward the mercy seat.
  21You are to put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you are to put the testimony that I will give you,
  22and I will meet with you there, and from above the mercy seat—from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the testimony—I will speak to you about all that I command you for the children of Israel.
 

The Table for the Bread of the Presence

23“You are to make a table of acacia wood. Its length is to be two cubits,f and its width is to be a cubit,g and its height is to be one and a half cubits.h
  24You are to overlay it with pure gold and make a gold molding around it.
  25You are to make a rim of a handbreadth around it. You will make a golden molding on its rim around it.
  26You are to make four rings of gold for it, and put the rings in the four corners that are on its four feet.
  27The rings should be close to the rim, for places for the poles to carry the table.
  28You are to make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, so that the table can be carried by them.
  29You are to make its dishes, its spoons, its ladles, and its bowls to pour out offerings with, you are to make them of pure gold.
  30You are to set the Bread of the Presence on the table before me always.
 

The Menorah

31“You are to make a menorah of pure gold. The menorah is to be made of hammered work. Its base, its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its flowers are to be of one piece with it.
  32There are to be six branches extending out from its sides, three branches of the menorah out from its one side, and three branches of the menorah out from its other side.
  33Three cups made like almond blossoms are to be on one branch, a bud and a flower, and three cups made like almond blossoms are to be on the other branch, a bud and a flower, and do the same for all six branches extending out from the menorah.
  34And on the menorah shaft there are to be four cups made like almond blossoms, its buds and its flowers,
  35One bud under the first pair of branches of one piece with it, and a bud under the second pair of branches of one piece with it, and a bud under the third pair of branches of one piece with it; do this for the six branches extending out of the menorah.
  36Their buds and their branches are to be of one piece with it, the whole of it is to be one beaten work of pure gold.
 

37Then you are to make seven oil lamps and set them up on it so that they give light to the space in front of it.
  38Its snuffers and its snuff dishes must be of pure gold.
  39The menorah, with all these accessories, is to be made of a talenti of pure gold.
  40See that you make them according to the pattern you have been shown on the mountain.
