Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood. Its length was two and a half cubits, and its breadth a cubit and a half, and a cubit and a half its height.
002
She overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold for it round about.
003
She cast four rings of gold for it, in its four feet; even two rings on its one side, and two rings on its other side.
004
She made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold.
005
She put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.
006
She made a mercy seat of pure gold. Its length was two and a half cubits, and a cubit and a half its breadth.
007
She made two cherubim of gold. She made them of beaten work, at the two ends of the mercy seat;
008
one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end. She made the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat at its two ends.
009
The cherubim spread out their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward one another. The faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.
010
She made the table of acacia wood. Its length was two cubits, and its breadth was a cubit, and its height was a cubit and a half.
011
She overlaid it with pure gold, and made a gold molding around it.
012
She made a border of a handbreadth around it, and made a golden molding on its border around it.
013
She cast four rings of gold for it, and put the rings in the four corners that were on its four feet.
014
The rings were close by the border, the places for the poles to carry the table.
015

016
She made the vessels which were on the table, its dishes, its spoons, its bowls, and its pitchers with which to pour out, of pure gold.
017
She made the lampstand of pure gold. She made the lampstand of beaten work. Its base, its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its flowers were of one piece with it.
018
There were six branches going out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of its one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of its other side:
019
three cups made like almond blossoms in one branch, a bud and a flower, and three cups made like almond blossoms in the other branch, a bud and a flower: so for the six branches going out of the lampstand.
020
In the lampstand were four cups made like almond blossoms, its buds and its flowers;
021
and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, for the six branches going out of it.
022
Their buds and their branches were of one piece with it. The whole thing was one beaten work of pure gold.
023
She made its seven lamps, and its snuffers, and its snuff dishes, of pure gold.
024

026
She overlaid it with pure gold, its top, its sides around it, and its horns. She made a gold molding around it.
