Exodus 25:1 ←
And the Lord said to Moses,
Exodus 25:2 ←
Say to the children of Israel that they are to make me an offering; from every man who has the impulse in his heart take an offering for me.
Exodus 25:3 ←
And this is the offering you are to take from them: gold and silver and brass;
Exodus 25:4 ←
And blue and purple and red, and the best linen, and goats' hair;
Exodus 25:5 ←
And sheepskins coloured red, and leather, and hard wood;
Exodus 25:6 ←
Oil for the light, spices for the sweet-smelling oil, sweet perfumes for burning;
Exodus 25:7 ←
Beryls and stones of value to be put on the ephod and on the priest's bag.
Exodus 25:8 ←
And let them make me a holy place, so that I may be ever present among them.
Exodus 25:9 ←
Make the House and everything in it from the designs which I will give you.
Exodus 25:10 ←
And they are to make an ark of hard wood; two and a half cubits long, and a cubit and a half wide and high.
Exodus 25:11 ←
It is to be plated inside and out with the best gold, with an edge of gold all round it
Exodus 25:12 ←
And make four rings of gold for it, to be fixed on its four feet, two rings on one side of it and two on the other.
Exodus 25:13 ←
And make rods of the same wood, plating them with gold.
Exodus 25:14 ←
And put the rods through the rings at the sides of the ark, for lifting it.
Exodus 25:15 ←
The rods are to be kept in the rings, and never taken out.
Exodus 25:16 ←
Inside the ark you are to put the record which I will give you.
Exodus 25:17 ←
And you are to make a cover of the best gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
Exodus 25:18 ←
And at the two ends of the cover you are to make two winged ones of hammered gold,
Exodus 25:19 ←
One at one end and one at the other; the winged ones are to be part of the cover.
Exodus 25:20 ←
And their wings are to be outstretched over the cover, and the winged ones are to be opposite one another, facing the cover.
Exodus 25:21 ←
And put the cover over the ark, and in the ark the record which I will give you.
Exodus 25:22 ←
And there, between the two winged ones on the cover of the ark, I will come to you, face to face, and make clear to you all the orders I have to give you for the children of Israel.
Exodus 25:23 ←
And you are to make a table of the same wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide and a cubit and a half high,
Exodus 25:24 ←
Plated with the best gold, with a gold edge all round it;
Exodus 25:25 ←
And make a frame all round it, as wide as a man's hand, with a gold edge to the frame.
Exodus 25:26 ←
And make four gold rings and put them at the four angles, on the four feet of the table;
Exodus 25:27 ←
The rings are to be fixed under the frame to take the rods with which the table is to be lifted.
Exodus 25:28 ←
Make rods of the same wood, plated with gold, for lifting the table.
Exodus 25:29 ←
And make the table-vessels, the spoons and the cups and the basins for liquids, all of the best gold.
Exodus 25:30 ←
And on the table at all times you are to keep my holy bread.
Exodus 25:31 ←
And you are to make a support for lights, of the best gold; its base and its pillar are to be of hammered gold; its cups, its buds, and its flowers are to be made of the same metal.
Exodus 25:32 ←
It is to have six branches coming out from its sides; three branches from one side and three from the other.
Exodus 25:33 ←
Every branch having three cups made like almond flowers, every cup with a bud and a flower, on all the branches.
Exodus 25:34 ←
And on the pillar, four cups like almond flowers, every one with its bud and its flower:
Exodus 25:35 ←
And under every two branches a bud, made with the branch, for all the six branches of it.
Exodus 25:36 ←
The buds and the branches are to be made of the same metal; all together one complete work of hammered gold.
Exodus 25:37 ←
Then you are to make its seven vessels for the lights, putting them in their place so that they give light in front of it.
Exodus 25:38 ←
And the instruments and trays for use with it are all to be of the best gold.
Exodus 25:39 ←
A talent of gold will be needed for it, with all these vessels.
Exodus 25:40 ←
And see that you make them from the design which you saw on the mountain.
