25:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
25:2 Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring me an
offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart
ye shall take my offering.
25:3 And this [is] the offering which ye shall take of them;
gold, and silver and brass,
25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and
25:5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim
25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet
25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the
25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among
25:9 According to all that I show thee [after] the pattern of
the tabernacle, and the pattern of all its instruments, even so
shall ye make [it].
25:10 And they shall make an ark [of] shittim wood: two cubits
and a half [shall be] its length, and a cubit and a half its
breadth, and a cubit and a half its hight.
25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and
without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown
of gold around it.
25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put
[them] in its four corners; and two rings [shall be] in the one
side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.
25:13 And thou shalt make staffs [of] shittim wood, and overlay
them with gold.
25:14 And thou shalt put the staffs into the rings by the sides
of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.
25:15 The staffs shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall
not be taken from it.
25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I
shall give thee.
25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy-seat [of] pure gold: two
cubits and a half [shall be] its length, and a cubit and a half
25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubim [of] gold, [of] beaten
work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy-seat.
25:19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub
on the other end: [even] of the mercy-seat shall ye make the
cherubim on its two ends.
25:20 And the cherubim shall stretch forth [their] wings on
high, covering the mercy-seat with their wings, and their faces
[shall look] one to another; towards the mercy-seat shall the
faces of the cherubim be.
25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy-seat above upon the ark; and
in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
25:22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with
thee from above the mercy-seat, from between the two cherubim
which [are] upon the ark of the testimony, of all [things]
which I will give thee in commandment to the children of
25:23 Thou shalt also make a table [of] shittim wood: its length
shall be two cubits, and its breadth a cubit, and its hight a
cubit and a half.
25:24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make to it a
crown of gold around it.
25:25 And thou shalt make to it a border of an hand-breadth
around it, and thou shalt make a golden crown to its border
25:26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the
rings in the four corners that [are] on its four feet.
25:27 Over against the border shall the rings be for places of
the staffs to bear the table.
25:28 And thou shalt make the staffs [of] shittim wood, and
overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.
25:29 And thou shalt make its dishes, and its spoons, and its
covers, and its bowls, to cover it with: [of] pure gold shalt
thou make them.
25:30 And thou shalt set upon the table show-bread before me
25:31 And thou shalt make a candlestick [of] pure gold: [of]
beaten work shall the candlestick be made: its shaft, and its
branches, its bowls, its knobs, and its flowers, shall be of
25:32 And six branches shall extend from the sides of it; three
branches of the candlestick from the one side, and three
branches of the candlestick from the other side:
25:33 Three bowls made like to almonds, [with] a knob and a
flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the
other branch, [with] a knob and a flower: so in the six
branches that project from the candlestick.
25:34 And in the candlesticks [shall be] four bowls made like to
almonds, [with] their knobs and their flowers.
25:35 And [there shall be] a knob under two branches of the
same, and a knob under two branches of the same, and a knob
under two branches of the same, according to the six branches
that project from the candlestick.
25:36 Their knobs and their branches shall be of the same: all
of it [shall be] one beaten work [of] pure gold.
25:37 And thou shalt make its seven lamps: and they shall light
its lamps, that they may give light over against it.
25:38 And its tongs, and its snuff-dishes, [shall be of] pure
25:39 [Of] a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all
25:40 And look that thou make [them] after their pattern, which
was shown thee on the mount.
