Exodus 37

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40]

37:1 And Beseleel made also the ark of setim wood: it was two cubits and a half in length, and a cubit and a half in breadth, and the height was of one cubit and a half: and he overlaid it with the purest gold within and without.

37:2 And he made to it a crown of gold round about,

37:3 Casting four rings of gold at the four corners thereof: two rings in one side, and two in the other.

37:4 And he made bars of setim wood, which he overlaid with gold,

37:5 And he put them into the rings that were at the sides of the ark to carry it.

37:6 He made also the propitiatory, that is, the oracle, of the purest gold, two cubits and a half in length, and a cubit and a half in breadth.

37:7 Two cherubims also of beaten gold, which he set on the two sides of the propitiatory:

37:8 One cherub in the top of one side, and the other cherub in the top of the other side: two cherubims at the two ends of the propitiatory,

37:9 Spreading their wings, and covering the propitiatory, and looking one towards the other, and towards it.

37:10 He made also the table of setim wood, in length two cubits, and in breadth one cubit, and in height it was a cubit and a half.

37:11 And he overlaid it with the finest gold, and he made to it a golden ledge round about.

37:12 And to the ledge itself he made a polished crown of gold, of four fingers' breadth, and upon the same another golden crown.

37:13 And he cast four rings of gold, which he put in the four corners at each foot of the table,

37:14 Over against the crown: and he put the bars into them, that the table might be carried.

37:15 And the bars also themselves he made of setim wood, and overlaid them with gold,

37:16 And the vessels for the divers uses of the table, dishes, bowls, and cups, and censers of pure gold, wherein the libations are to be offered.

37:17 He made also the candlestick of beaten work of the finest gold. From the shaft whereof its branches, its cups, and bowls, and lilies came out:

37:18 Six on the two sides: three branches on one side, and three on the other.

37:19 Three cups in manner of a nut on each branch, and bowls withal and lilies; and three cups of the fashion of a nut in another branch, and bowls withal and lilies. The work of the six branches that went out from the shaft of the candlestick was equal.

37:20 And in the shaft itself were four cups after the manner of a nut, and bowls withal at every one, and lilies:

37:21 And bowls under two branches in three places, which together make six branches going out from one shaft.

37:22 So both the bowls, and the branches were of the same, all beaten work of the purest gold.

37:23 He made also the seven lamps with their snuffers, and the vessels where the snuffings were to be put out, of the purest gold.

37:24 The candlestick with all the vessels thereof weighed a talent of gold.

37:25 He made also the altar of incense of setim wood, being a cubit on every side foursquare, and in height two cubits: from the corners of which went out horns.

37:26 And he overlaid it with the purest gold, with its grate and the sides, and the horns.

37:27 And he made to it a crown of gold round about, and two golden rings under the crown at each side, that the bars might be put into them, and the altar be carried.

37:28 And the bars themselves he made also of setim wood, and overlaid them with plates of gold.

37:29 He compounded also the oil for the ointment of sanctification, and incense of the purest spices, according to the work of a perfumer.
