Pure oil olive beaten
the pure gold lampstand,
with its arrangement of lamps and all its utensils, and the oil for the light;
“Command the sons of Israel that they bring to you
clear oil from beaten olives for the light, to make a lamp burn continually.
But the olive tree said to them, ‘Shall I leave my fatness with
which God and men are honored, and go to wave over the trees?’
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
have anointed my head with oil;
Then I said to him, “What are these
two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?”
These are the
two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.
For the light
Then you shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The lampstand and its base and its shaft are to be made of hammered work; its cups, its bulbs and its flowers shall be of one piece with it.
