Offerings for the Tabernacle
25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
25:2 Speak unto 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
25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for
25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in
25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell
25:9 According to all that I show thee, after the pattern
of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments
thereof, even so shall ye make it.
25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood:
two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a
cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half
the height thereof.
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 round about.
25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and
put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be
in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of
25:13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and
overlay them with gold.
25:14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the
sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.
25:15 The staves 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 the length thereof, and a cubit
and a half the breadth thereof.
25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold, of beaten
work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy
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 the two ends thereof.
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; toward 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
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 unto the
children of Israel.
25:23 Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood:
two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the
breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
25:24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make
thereto a crown of gold round about.
25:25 And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand
breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to
the border thereof round about.
25:26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and
put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet
25:27 Over against the border shall the rings be for places
of the staves to bear the table.
25:28 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and
overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with
25:29 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons
thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover
withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
25:30 And thou shalt set upon the table showbread before me
25:31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure
gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his
shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his
flowers, shall be of the same.
25:32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it;
three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and
three branches of the candlestick out of the other side:
25:33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a
flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in
the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six
branches that come out of the candlestick.
25:34 And in the candlesticks shall be four bowls made like
unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.
25:35 And there shall be a knop under two branches of the
same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop
under two branches of the same, according to the six
branches that proceed out of the candlestick.
25:36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same:
all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.
25:37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they
shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over
25:38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof,
shall be of pure gold.
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 showed thee in the mount.
