Exodus 25:17-22 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

17 Then you shall make a mercy seat[a] of pure gold; two cubits and a half shall be its length, and a cubit and a half its width. 18 You shall make two cherubim of gold; you shall make them of hammered work, at the two ends of the mercy seat.[b] 19 Make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other; of one piece with the mercy seat[c] you shall make the cherubim at its two ends. 20 The cherubim shall spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat[d] with their wings. They shall face one to another; the faces of the cherubim shall be turned toward the mercy seat.[e] 21 You shall put the mercy seat[f] on the top of the ark; and in the ark you shall put the covenant[g] that I shall give you. 22 There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat,[h] from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the covenant,[i] I will deliver to you all my commands for the Israelites.
