1Yahweh spoke to Moses and said, 2'Tel the Israelites to set aside a contribution for me; you wil accept a contribution from everyonewhose heart prompts him to give it. 3And this is what you wil accept from them: gold, silver and bronze; 4materials dyed violet-purple, red-purple and crimson, fine linen, goats' hair; 5rams' skins dyed red, fine leather, acacia wood; 6oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and fragrant incense; 7cornelian and other stones to be set in the ephod and breastplate. 8Make me a sanctuary so that I can reside among them. 9You will make it al according to the design for the Dwel ing and the design for its furnishings which Ishall now show you. 10'You must make me an ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, one and a half cubits wide andone and a half cubits high. 11You wil overlay it, inside and out, with pure gold and make a gold moulding al round it. 12You wil cast four gold rings for it and fix them to its four supports: two rings on one side and tworings on the other. 13You wil also make shafts of acacia wood and overlay them with gold 14and pass the shafts through the rings on the sides of the ark, by which to carry it. 15The shafts wil stay in the rings of the ark and not be withdrawn. 16Inside the ark you wil put the Testimony which I am about to give you. 17'You wil also make a mercy-seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits long and one and a half cubitswide, 18and you wil model two great winged creatures of beaten gold, you wil make them at the two ends ofthe mercy-seat. 19Model one of the winged creatures at one end and the other winged creature at the other end; youwil model the winged creatures of a piece with the mercy-seat at either end. 20The winged creatures must have their wings spread upwards, protecting the mercy-seat with theirwings and facing each other, their faces being towards the mercy-seat. 21You wil put the mercy-seat on the top of the ark, and inside the ark you will put the Testimony which Iam about to give you. 22There I shall come to meet you; from above the mercy-seat, from between the two winged creatureswhich are on the ark of the Testimony, I shall give you al my orders for the Israelites. 23'You must also make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide and one and a halfcubits high. 24You wil overlay it with pure gold, and make a gold moulding al round it. 25You wil fit it with struts of a hand's breadth and make a gold moulding round the struts. 26You wil make four gold rings for it and fix the four rings at the four corners where the four legs are. 27The rings must lie close to the struts to hold the shafts for carrying the table. 28You must make the shafts of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. The table must be carried bythese. 29You must make dishes, cups, jars and libation bowls for it; you must make these of pure gold, 30and on the table, in my presence, you wil always put the loaves of permanent offering. 31'You wil also make a lamp-stand of pure gold; the lamp-stand must be of beaten gold, base andstem. Its cups, calyxes and petals, must be of a piece with it. 32Six branches must spring from its sides: three of the lamp-stand's branches from one side, three ofthe lamp-stand's branches from the other. 33The 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, andsimilarly for all six branches springing from the lamp-stand. 34The lamp-stand itself must carry four cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with its calyx and bud: 35one calyx under the first two branches springing from the lamp-stand, one calyx under the next pairof branches and one calyx under the last pair of branches -- thus for al six branches springing from the lamp-stand. 36The calyxes and the branches wil be of a piece with the lamp-stand, and the whole made from asingle piece of pure gold, beaten out. 37You wil also make seven lamps for it and mount the lamps in such a way that they light up the spacein front of it. 38The snuffers and trays must be of pure gold. 39You wil use a talent of pure gold for the lamp-stand and al its accessories; 40and see that you work to the design which was shown you on the mountain.'
