The vision of the tabernacle and its furniture
Concerning the materials and the pattern
Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
the children of Israel to take for Me a 1heave
offering. From every man whose bheart
makes him willing you shall take My heave offering.
And this is the heave offering which you shall take from them: 1gold
and silver and bronze,
and purple and scarlet strands, and 2fine
linen, and 3goats
’ skins dyed red, and 2porpoise
skins, and 3acacia
for the light, 2bspices
for the anointing oil and for the cfragrant
stones and bstones
to be set for the cephod
and for the breastplate.
And let them make a asanctuary
for Me that I may dwell in their bmidst
According to all that I show you, the 1apattern
of the 2btabernacle
and the pattern of all its furnishings, even so shall you make it.
The Ark of Testimony with the expiatory cover
they shall make an 1bark
and a half cubits shall be its length; and 3one
and a half cubits, its width; and 3one
and a half cubits, its height.
And you shall overlay it with pure 1gold
; inside and outside you shall overlay it; and you shall make a 2rim
of gold upon it all around.
And you shall cast four 1rings
of gold for it, and put them on its four feet; and two 2rings
shall be on one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it.
And you shall make 1poles
of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.
And you shall 1put
the poles into the rings on the sides of the Ark to carry the Ark with them.
The poles shall be in the rings of the Ark; they shall not be taken from it.
And you shall 1put
into the aArk
the Testimony which I shall give you.
you shall make an 1bexpiation
cover of pure gold: 2two
and a half cubits shall be its length, and 2one
and a half cubits, its width.
And you shall make two 1cherubim
of gold; of beaten work you shall make them, at the two ends of the expiation cover.
And make one cherub at one end and one cherub at the other end; of 1one
piece with the expiation cover you shall make the cherubim on its two ends.
And the cherubim shall spread out their 1awings
above the cover, covering the expiation cover with their wings, with their 1faces
toward one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the expiation cover.
And you shall 1put
cover on top of the Ark, and into the Ark you shall 2put
the Testimony that I shall give you.
And there I will 1ameet
with you, and I will speak with you from above the expiation cover, from bbetween
the two cherubim which are upon the Ark of the Testimony, of everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.

and a half cubits its height.
And you shall overlay it with pure gold and make a 1rim
of gold around it.

And you shall make for it four 1rings
of gold and put the rings on the four corners that are on its four feet.
The rings shall be close to the frame as holders for the poles to carry the table.
And you shall make the 1poles
of acacia wood and overlay them with gold, and the table shall be carried with them.
