Exodus 25 ©
Directions what the Israelites are to offer for the making of the tabernacle. The form of the ark. The mercy seat with the cherubims. The table with its furniture and shewbread. The candlestick with the instruments thereof.
AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,
According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern iof the tabernacle, and the pattern of jall the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
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 it.
And thou shalt nmake *staves of *shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.
The *staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.
And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even 4of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.
And the tcherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; utoward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.
And xthere I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.
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.
And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.
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.
Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.
Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.
