25:1
Yahweh spoke to Moses and said,

25:2
'Tell the Israelites to set aside a contribution for me; you will accept a contribution from everyone whose heart prompts him to give it.

25:3
And this is what you will accept from them: gold, silver and bronze;

25:4
materials dyed violet-purple, red-purple and crimson, fine linen, goats' hair;

25:5
rams' skins dyed red, fine leather, acacia wood;

25:6
oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and fragrant incense;

25:7
cornelian and other stones to be set in the ephod and breastplate.

25:8
Make me a sanctuary so that I can reside among them.

25:9
You will make it all according to the design for the Dwelling and the design for its furnishings which I shall now show you.

25:10
'You must make me an ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, one and a half cubits wide and one and a half cubits high.

25:11
You will overlay it, inside and out, with pure gold and make a gold moulding all round it.

25:12
You will cast four gold rings for it and fix them to its four supports: two rings on one side and two rings on the other.

25:13
You will also make shafts of acacia wood and overlay them with gold

25:14
and pass the shafts through the rings on the sides of the ark, by which to carry it.

25:15
The shafts will stay in the rings of the ark and not be withdrawn.

25:16
Inside the ark you will put the Testimony which I am about to give you.

25:17
'You will also make a mercy-seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubits wide,

25:18
and you will model two great winged creatures of beaten gold, you will make them at the two ends of the mercy-seat.

25:19
Model one of the winged creatures at one end and the other winged creature at the other end; you will model the winged creatures of a piece with the mercy-seat at either end.

25:20
The winged creatures must have their wings spread upwards, protecting the mercy-seat with their wings and facing each other, their faces being towards the mercy-seat.

25:21
You will put the mercy-seat on the top of the ark, and inside the ark you will put the Testimony which I am about to give you.

25:22
There I shall come to meet you; from above the mercy-seat, from between the two winged creatures which are on the ark of the Testimony, I shall give you all my orders for the Israelites.

25:23
'You must also make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide and one and a half cubits high.

25:24
You will overlay it with pure gold, and make a gold moulding all round it.

25:25
You will fit it with struts of a hand's breadth and make a gold moulding round the struts.

25:26
You will make four gold rings for it and fix the four rings at the four corners where the four legs are.

25:27
The rings must lie close to the struts to hold the shafts for carrying the table.

25:28
You must make the shafts of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. The table must be carried by these.

25:29
You must make dishes, cups, jars and libation bowls for it; you must make these of pure gold,

25:30
and on the table, in my presence, you will always put the loaves of permanent offering.

25:31
'You will also make a lamp-stand of pure gold; the lamp-stand must be of beaten gold, base and stem. Its cups, calyxes and petals, must be of a piece with it.

25:32
Six branches must spring from its sides: three of the lamp-stand's branches from one side, three of the lamp-stand's branches from the other.

25:33
The first branch must carry three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyx and petals; the second branch, too, must carry three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyx and bud, and similarly for all six branches springing from the lamp-stand.

25:34
The lamp-stand itself must carry four cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyx and bud:

25:35
one calyx under the first two branches springing from the lamp-stand, one calyx under the next pair of branches and one calyx under the last pair of branches -- thus for all six branches springing from the lamp-stand.

25:36
The calyxes and the branches will be of a piece with the lamp-stand, and the whole made from a single piece of pure gold, beaten out.

25:37
You will also make seven lamps for it and mount the lamps in such a way that they light up the space in front of it.

25:38
The snuffers and trays must be of pure gold.

25:39
You will use a talent of pure gold for the lamp-stand and all its accessories;

25:40
and see that you work to the design which was shown you on the mountain.'
