25:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me a heave-offering: of every one whose heart prompteth him, ye shall take my heave-offering.
25:3 And this is the heave-offering that ye shall take of them: gold, and silver, and copper,
25:4 and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and byssus, and goats' [hair],
25:5 and rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins; and acacia-wood;
25:6 oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil, and for the incense of fragrant drugs;
25:7 onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.
25:8 And they shall make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.
25:9 According to all that I shall shew thee, the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the utensils thereof, even so shall ye make [it].
25:10 And they shall make an ark of acacia-wood; two cubits and a half the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold: inside and outside shalt thou overlay it; and shalt make upon it a border of gold round about.
25:12 And cast four rings of gold for it, and put [them] at the four corners thereof, that two rings may be upon the one side thereof and two rings upon the other side thereof.
25:13 And make staves of acacia-wood and overlay them with gold.
25:14 And put the staves into the rings upon the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.
25:15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not come out from it.
25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony that I shall give thee.
25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy-seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold; [of] beaten work shalt thou make them, at the two ends of the mercy-seat.
25:19 And make one cherub at the end of the one side, and one cherub at the end of the other side; out of the mercy-seat shall ye make the cherubim at the two ends thereof.
25:20 And the cherubim shall stretch out [their] wings over it, covering over with their wings the mercy-seat, and their faces opposite to one another: toward the mercy-seat shall the faces of the cherubim be [turned].
25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy-seat above on the ark, and shalt put in the ark the testimony that I shall give thee.
25:22 And there will I meet with thee, and will speak with thee from above the mercy-seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, everything that I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
25:23 And thou shalt make a table of acacia-wood, two cubits the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
25:24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make upon it a border of gold round about.
25:25 And thou shalt make for it a margin of a handbreadth round about, and shalt make a border of gold for the margin thereof round about.
25:26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings at the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.
25:27 Close to the margin shall the rings be, as receptacles of the staves to carry the table.
25:28 And thou shalt make the staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold; and the table shall be carried upon them.
25:29 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and cups thereof, and goblets thereof, and bowls thereof, with which to pour out: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
25:30 And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me continually.
25:31 And thou shalt make a lamp-stand of pure gold; [of] beaten work shall the lamp-stand be made: its base and its shaft, its cups, its knobs, and its flowers shall be of the same.
25:32 And six branches shall come out of the sides thereof -- three branches of the lamp-stand out of one side thereof, and three branches of the lamp-stand out of the other side thereof;
25:33 three cups shaped like almonds in the one branch, a knob and a flower: and three cups shaped like almonds in the other branch, a knob and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the lamp-stand.
25:34 And in the lamp-stand four cups shaped like almonds, its knobs and its flowers;
25:35 and a knob under two branches of it, and [again] a knob under two branches of it, and [again] a knob under two branches of it, for the six branches that proceed out of the lamp-stand.
25:36 Their knobs and their branches shall be of itself -- all of one beaten work of pure gold.
25:37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof, and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may shine out before it;
25:38 and the snuffers thereof, and the snuff-trays thereof, of pure gold.
25:39 Of a talent of pure gold shall they make it, with all these utensils.
25:40 And see that thou make [them] according to their pattern, which hath been shewn to thee in the mountain.
