Exodus 37-38 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Ark, Table, Menorah, Incense Altar

37 Bezalel also made the Ark from acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high. He overlaid it with pure gold inside and out, and made a crown of gold for it all around. He cast four golden rings for it, in the four feet, two rings on the one side, and two on the other. He also made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. Then he put the poles into the rings on the sides of the Ark, to carry the Ark.

He made an atonement cover of pure gold, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide. Then he forged two cheruvim of gold, from hammered work, at the two ends of the atonement cover, one cheruv at one end, and one cheruv at the other. He made the atonement cover from a single piece with the cheruvim on the two ends. So the cheruvim spread out their wings on high, overshadowing the atonement cover with their wings, with their faces to one another, and the faces of the cheruvim toward the atonement cover.

10 Then he made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high. 11 He overlaid it with pure gold and made a golden crown all around. 12 Also he made a border for it, a hand-width around, and made a golden crown for the border all around. 13 He cast four golden rings for it, and put the rings into the four corners that were on the four feet. 14 The rings were close to the borders, as holders for the poles to carry the table. 15 He also made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold, to carry the table. 16 He forged the articles that were on the table, the dishes, pans, bowls and jars, with which to pour, out of pure gold.

17 Then he made the menorah of pure gold, of hammered work, even its base, its stem, its cups, its bulbs and its flowers, were one piece with it. 18 There were six branches going out of the sides, three branches out of one side, and three branches out of the other. 19 Three cups made like almond blossoms were in one branch, a bulb within a flower, and three cups made like almond blossoms in the next branch, another bulb within a flower. It was just so for the six branches going out of the menorah. 20 Also within the menorah were four cups made like almond blossoms, bulbs and flowers, 21 with a bulb under two branches of one piece, a second bulb under two branches of another piece, and a bulb under two branches of a third piece, for six branches extending out of it. 22 Their bulbs and their branches were one piece with it, an entire hammered work of pure gold.

23 He also made the seven lamps, along with tongs and censers of pure gold. 24 He made them from a talent of pure gold, along with all the pieces.

25 He made the altar of incense from acacia wood, a cubit long, a cubit wide, squared, and two cubits high. The horns were one piece with it. 26 Then he overlaid it with pure gold on top, on the sides all around and over its horns. Also he made a crown of gold for it all around. 27 He made two golden rings for it underneath the crown, on two sides as holders for poles in order to carry it. 28 He made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold.

29 Then he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, the blend of a perfumer.

Altar for Sacrifices

38 He then made the altar for burnt offering from acacia wood. It was square, five cubits long, five cubits wide, and three cubits high. He also made the horns on the four corners from one piece, and overlaid it with bronze. Then he made all the utensils for the altar—the pots and the shovels, the basins, the forks and the fire pans. He made all the utensils from bronze. He also made a bronze grating net for the altar, under the ledge around it, reaching halfway up. He cast four rings for the four ends of the bronze grating, to be holders for the poles. He made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with bronze. Then he put the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar to carry it, and he made it hollow, out of boards.

He made the basin and the base from bronze, with mirrors from the women who served at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.

Then he made the courtyard. For the south side the hangings of the courtyard were finely twisted linen, 100 cubits long. 10 There were 20 pillars and 20 bronze bases. The hooks of the pillars and their bands were silver. 11 Likewise, for the north side, 100 cubits long, with 20 bronze pillars and bases, and the hooks for the pillars and their bands were silver. 12 For the west side the hangings were 50 cubits, with ten pillars and their ten bases, as well as the hooks for the pillars and their silver bands. 13 Likewise, for the east side, 50 cubits long. 14 The hangings for one side of the gate were fifteen cubits, with three pillars and their bases. 15 Similarly for the other side, on either side of the gate of the courtyard were hangings of 15 cubits, with their three pillars and three bases. 16 All the hangings of the courtyard all around were of finely twisted linen. 17 The bases for the pillars were bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their bands were silver, the overlaying of their capitals were silver, and all the pillars of the courtyard were ringed with silver.

18 The curtain for the gate of the courtyard was the work of a color weaver, of blue, purple, scarlet and finely twisted linen. It was 20 cubits long and five cubits high, like the hangings of the courtyard. 19 Their four pillars and four bases were bronze. Their hooks along with the overlaying of their capitals and their bands were silver. 20 All the pegs of the Tabernacle and the courtyard all around were bronze.

Parashat Pekudei

21 These are the accounts of the Tabernacle of the Testimony, as they were recorded according to the commandment of Moses, by the service of the Levites, under the hand of Ithamar son of Aaron the kohen. 22 Bezalel son of Uri son of Hur of the tribe of Judah made all that Adonai commanded Moses. 23 Along with him was Oholiab son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, a craftsman, a skillful workman, and a weaver of colors, in blue, purple, scarlet and fine linen.

24 The entirety of the gold that was used for the work of the Sanctuary, including the gold of the offering, was 29 talents[a] and 730 shekels, according to the Sanctuary shekel. 25 The silver from those numbered from the congregation was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, according to the Sanctuary shekel— 26 that is, a beka, or half a shekel per head, according to the shekel of the Sanctuary, for everyone who was recorded, from 20 years old and upward, for 603,550 men. 27 The 100 talents of silver were for casting the bases of the Sanctuary, and the bases for the inner curtain, 100 bases for 100 talents, a talent for each base. 28 The 1,775 shekels he made into hooks for the pillars, overlaid their capitals, and made bands for them.

29 The bronze from the offering was 70 talents and 2,400 shekels. 30 With it he made the bases for the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, the bronze altar, the bronze grating, all the utensils for the altar, 31 along with the bases of the courtyard all around, the bases for the gate of the courtyard, as well as all the pegs of the Tabernacle and the pegs for the courtyard all around.
