The Lampstand

31 “You(A) are to make a lampstand(B) out of pure, hammered gold. It is to be made of one piece: its base and shaft, its ornamental cups, and its buds[a] and petals. 32 Six branches are to extend from its sides, three branches of the lampstand from one side and three branches of the lampstand from the other side. 33 There are to be three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with a bud and petals, on one branch, and three cups shaped like almond blossoms, each with a bud and petals, on the next branch. It is to be this way for the six branches that extend from the lampstand. 34 There are to be four cups shaped like almond blossoms on the lampstand shaft along with its buds and petals. 35 For the six branches that extend from the lampstand, a bud must be under the first pair of branches from it, a bud under the second pair of branches from it, and a bud under the third pair of branches from it. 36 Their buds and branches are to be of one piece.[b] All of it is to be a single hammered piece of pure gold.

37 “Make its seven lamps,(C) and set them up so that they illuminate the area in front of it. 38 Its snuffers and firepans must be of pure gold. 39 The lampstand[c] with all these utensils is to be made from seventy-five pounds[d] of pure gold. 40 Be careful to make them according to the pattern(D) you have been shown on the mountain.
