37
Ark, Table, Menorah, Incense Altar
1Bezalel also made the Ark from acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.
2He overlaid it with pure gold inside and out, and made a crown of gold for it all around.
3He cast four golden rings for it, in the four feet, two rings on the one side, and two on the other.
4He also made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold.
5Then he put the poles into the rings on the sides of the Ark, to carry the Ark.
6He made an atonement cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide.
7Then he forged two cheruvim of gold, from hammered work, at the two ends of the atonement cover,
8one cheruv at one end, and one cheruv at the other. He made the atonement cover from a single piece with the cheruvim on the two ends.
9So the cheruvim spread out their wings on high, overshadowing the atonement cover with their wings, with their faces to one another, and the faces of the cheruvim toward the atonement cover.
10Then he made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.
11He overlaid it with pure gold and made a golden crown all around.
12Also he made a border for it, a hand-width around, and made a golden crown for the border all around.
13He cast four golden rings for it, and put the rings into the four corners that were on the four feet.
14The rings were close to the borders, as holders for the poles to carry the table.
15He also made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold, to carry the table.
16He forged the articles that were on the table, the dishes, pans, bowls and jars, with which to pour, out of pure gold.
17Then he made the menorah of pure gold, of hammered work, even its base, its stem, its cups, its bulbs and its flowers, were one piece with it.
18There were six branches going out of the sides, three branches out of one side, and three branches out of the other.
19Three cups made like almond blossoms were in one branch, a bulb within a flower, and three cups made like almond blossoms in the next branch, another bulb within a flower. It was just so for the six branches going out of the menorah.
20Also within the menorah were four cups made like almond blossoms, bulbs and flowers,
21with a bulb under two branches of one piece, a second bulb under two branches of another piece, and a bulb under two branches of a third piece, for six branches extending out of it.
22Their bulbs and their branches were one piece with it, an entire hammered work of pure gold.
23He also made the seven lamps, along with tongs and censers of pure gold.
24He made them from a talent of pure gold, along with all the pieces.
25He made the altar of incense from acacia wood, a cubit long, a cubit wide, squared, and two cubits high. The horns were one piece with it.
26Then he overlaid it with pure gold on top, on the sides all around and over its horns. Also he made a crown of gold for it all around.
27He made two golden rings for it underneath the crown, on two sides as holders for poles in order to carry it.
28He made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold.
29Then he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, the blend of a perfumer.
