Exodus 37

Exodus 37:1  
And Bezalel made the ark of hard wood, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide and a cubit and a half high;

Exodus 37:2  
Plating it inside and out with the best gold, and putting an edge of gold all round it.

Exodus 37:3  
And he made four gold rings for its four angles, two on one side and two on the other,

Exodus 37:4  
And rods of the same wood plated with gold.

Exodus 37:5  
These rods he put in the rings at the sides of the ark, for lifting it.

Exodus 37:6  
And he made the cover all of gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.

Exodus 37:7  
And he made two winged ones, hammered out of one bit of gold, for the two ends of the cover;

Exodus 37:8  
Placing one at one end and one at the other; the winged ones were part of the cover.

Exodus 37:9  
And their wings were stretched out over the cover; the faces of the winged ones were opposite one another and facing the cover.

Exodus 37:10  
And he made the table of hard wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide and a cubit and a half high;

Exodus 37:11  
Plating it with the best gold and putting a gold edge all round it.

Exodus 37:12  
And he made a frame all round it about as wide as a man's hand, edged with gold all round.

Exodus 37:13  
And he made four gold rings, and put the rings at the angles of its four feet.

Exodus 37:14  
The rings were fixed under the frame to take the rods with which the table was to be lifted.

Exodus 37:15  
The rods for lifting the table he made of hard wood plated with gold.

Exodus 37:16  
And all the table-vessels, the plates and spoons and basins and the cups for liquids, he made of the best gold.

Exodus 37:17  
Then he made the support for the lights, all of the best gold; its base and its pillar were of hammered gold; its cups and buds and flowers were all made out of the same metal:

Exodus 37:18  
It had six branches coming out from its sides, three from one side and three from the other;

Exodus 37:19  
Every branch having three cups made like almond flowers, every cup with a bud and a flower on all the branches;

Exodus 37:20  
And on its pillar, four cups like almond flowers, every one with its bud and its flower;

Exodus 37:21  
And under every two branches a bud, made with the branch, for all six branches of it.

Exodus 37:22  
The buds and the branches were made of the same metal, all together one complete work of the best hammered gold.

Exodus 37:23  
And he made the seven vessels for the lights, and all the necessary instruments for it, of gold.

Exodus 37:24  
A talent of the best gold was used for the making of it and its vessels.

Exodus 37:25  
And he made the altar for the burning of spices, using the same hard wood; it was square, a cubit long and a cubit wide and two cubits high; the horns made of the same.

Exodus 37:26  
The top and the sides and the horns were all plated with the best gold; and he put an edge of gold all round it.

Exodus 37:27  
And he made two gold rings, placing them on the two opposite sides under the edge, to take the rods for lifting it.

Exodus 37:28  
The rods he made of the same hard wood, plating them with gold.

Exodus 37:29  
And he made the holy oil and the perfume of sweet spices for burning, after the art of the perfume-maker.
