What the Israelites must offer for the making of the Tabernacle.
Exodus 25:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, Exodus 25:2 Speak to 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. Exodus 25:3 And this [is] the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver and brass, Exodus 25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' [hair]. Exodus 25:5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood. Exodus 25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense, Exodus 25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breast-plate. Exodus 25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. Exodus 25:9 According to all that I show thee [after] the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all its instruments, even so shall ye make [it].
The form of the Ark.
Exodus 25:10 And they shall make an ark [of] shittim wood: two cubits and a half [shall be] its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its hight. Exodus 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 around it. Exodus 25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put [them] in its four corners; and two rings [shall be] in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it. Exodus 25:13 And thou shalt make staffs [of] shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. Exodus 25:14 And thou shalt put the staffs into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them. Exodus 25:15 The staffs shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it. Exodus 25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.
The Mercy Seat, with the cherubims.
Exodus 25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy-seat [of] pure gold: two cubits and a half [shall be] its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth. Exodus 25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubim [of] gold, [of] beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy-seat. Exodus 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 its two ends. Exodus 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; towards the mercy-seat shall the faces of the cherubim be. Exodus 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 give thee. Exodus 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 to the children of Israel.
The table, with the furniture thereof.
Exodus 25:23 Thou shalt also make a table [of] shittim wood: its length shall be two cubits, and its breadth a cubit, and its hight a cubit and a half. Exodus 25:24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make to it a crown of gold around it. Exodus 25:25 And thou shalt make to it a border of an hand-breadth around it, and thou shalt make a golden crown to its border around it. Exodus 25:26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that [are] on its four feet. Exodus 25:27 Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staffs to bear the table. Exodus 25:28 And thou shalt make the staffs [of] shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them. Exodus 25:29 And thou shalt make its dishes, and its spoons, and its covers, and its bowls, to cover it with: [of] pure gold shalt thou make them. Exodus 25:30 And thou shalt set upon the table show-bread before me always.
The candlestick, with the instruments thereof.
Exodus 25:31 And thou shalt make a candlestick [of] pure gold: [of] beaten work shall the candlestick be made: its shaft, and its branches, its bowls, its knobs, and its flowers, shall be of the same. Exodus 25:32 And six branches shall extend from the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick from the one side, and three branches of the candlestick from the other side: Exodus 25:33 Three bowls made like to almonds, [with] a knob and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, [with] a knob and a flower: so in the six branches that project from the candlestick. Exodus 25:34 And in the candlesticks [shall be] four bowls made like to almonds, [with] their knobs and their flowers. Exodus 25:35 And [there shall be] a knob under two branches of the same, and a knob under two branches of the same, and a knob under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that project from the candlestick. Exodus 25:36 Their knobs and their branches shall be of the same: all of it [shall be] one beaten work [of] pure gold. Exodus 25:37 And thou shalt make its seven lamps: and they shall light its lamps, that they may give light over against it. Exodus 25:38 And its tongs, and its snuff-dishes, [shall be of] pure gold. Exodus 25:39 [Of] a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. Exodus 25:40 And look that thou make [them] after their pattern, which was shown thee on the mount.
