1 And the LORD talked with Moses, saying, 2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, that they give me a heave offering, and of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart, ye shall take it. 3 And this is the heave offering which ye shall take of them: gold, silver and brass; 4 and jacinth colour, scarlet, purple, bysse and goat's hair; 5 ram's skins that are red, and the skins of taxus, and sethim-wood, 6 oil for lights, and spices for anointing oil and for sweet cense; 7 onyx stones and set stones for the Ephod and for the breastlap.
8 "And they shall make me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them. 9 And I shall show thee the fashion of the habitation and of all the ornaments thereof; even so, see that ye make it in all things.
10 And they shall make an ark of sethim-wood; two cubits and a half long, a cubit and a half broad, and a cubit and a half high. 11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold: both within and without, and shalt make on high upon it, a crown of gold round about. 12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it and put them in the four corners thereof; two rings on the one side of it, and two on the other. 13 And thou shalt make staves of sethim-wood and cover them with gold, 14 and put the staves in the rings along by the sides of the ark, to bear it withal. 15 And the staves shall abide in the rings of the ark, and shall not be taken away. 16 And thou shalt put in the ark, the witness which I shall give thee. 17 "And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold, two cubits and a half long and a cubit and a half broad. 18 And make two cherubims of thick gold on the two ends of the mercy seat; 19 and set the one cherub on the one end and the other on the other end of the mercy seat: so see that thou make them on the two ends thereof. 20 And the cherubims shall stretch their wings abroad over on high, and cover the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another: even to the mercy seat ward, shall the faces of the cherubims be. 21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark, and in the ark thou shalt put the witness which I will give thee. 22 "There I will meet thee and will commune with thee from upon the mercy seat from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of witness, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
23 Thou shalt also make a table of sethim-wood, of two cubits long and one cubit broad and a cubit and a half high. 24 And cover it with pure gold and make thereto a crown of gold round about. 25 And make unto that a hoop of four fingers broad, round about. And make a golden crown also to the hoop round about. 26 And make for it four rings of gold and put them in the corners that are on the four feet thereof: 27 even hard under the hoop shall the rings be, to put in staves to bear the table withal. 28 And thou shalt make staves of sethim-wood and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them. 29 And thou shalt make his dishes, spoons, pots and flatpieces to pour out withal, of fine gold. 30 And thou shalt set upon the table, shewbread before me always.
31 "And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure thick gold with his shaft, branches, bowls, knops and flowers proceeding thereout. 32 Six branches shall proceed out of the sides of the candlestick, three out of the one side and three out of the other. 33 And there shall be three cups like unto almonds with knops and flowers upon every one of the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick; 34 and in the candlestick self, four cups like unto almonds with their knops and flowers: 35 that there be a knop under every two branches of the six that proceed out of the candlestick. 36 And the knops and the branches shall be, altogether, one piece of pure thick gold.
37 And thou shalt make seven lamps and put them on high thereon, to give light unto the other side that is over against it: 38 with snuffers and firepans of pure gold. 39 An hundred pound weight of fine gold shall make it with all the apparel. 40 And see that thou make them after the fashion that was showed thee in the mount."
