Exodus (Author Moses)

38:1And he made the altar of burnt-offering of acacia-wood; five cubits the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof, square, and three cubits the height thereof.

38:2And he made its horns on the four corners thereof; its horns were of itself; and he overlaid it with copper.

38:3And he made all the utensils of the altar: the pots, and the shovels, and the bowls, the forks, and the firepans; all its utensils made he of copper.

38:4And he made for the altar a grating of network of copper under its ledge from beneath, to the very middle of it.

38:5And he cast four rings for the four corners of the grating of copper, as receptacles for the staves.

38:6And he made the staves of acacia-wood, and overlaid them with copper.

38:7And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the altar, with which to carry it. Hollow with boards did he make it.

38:8And he made the laver of copper, and its stand of copper, of the mirrors of the crowds of women who crowded before the entrance of the tent of meeting.

38:9And he made the court. On the south side southward, the hangings of the court were of twined byssus, a hundred cubits;

38:10their pillars twenty, and their bases twenty, of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their connecting-rods of silver.

38:11And on the north side, a hundred cubits; their pillars twenty, and their bases twenty, of copper; the hooks of the pillars and their connecting-rods of silver.

38:12And on the west side, hangings of fifty cubits; their pillars ten, and their bases ten; the hooks of the pillars and their connecting-rods of silver.

38:13And for the east side, eastward, fifty cubits;

38:14the hangings on the one wing of fifteen cubits, their pillars three, and their bases three;

38:15and on the other wing, on this side as on that side of the gate of the court, hangings of fifteen cubits, their pillars three, and their bases three.

38:16All the hangings of the court round about were of twined byssus;

38:17and the bases of the pillars of copper, the hooks of the pillars and their connecting-rods of silver, and the overlaying of their capitals of silver; and all the pillars of the court were fastened together with rods of silver.

38:18-- And the curtain of the gate of the court was of embroidery of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined byssus; and the length was twenty cubits, and the height like the breadth, five cubits, just as the hangings of the court;

38:19and their pillars four, and their bases four, of copper; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their capitals and their connecting-rods of silver.

38:20And all the pegs for the tabernacle and for the court round about were of copper.

38:21These are the things numbered of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony, which were counted, according to the commandment of Moses, by the service of the Levites, under the hand of Ithamar, son of Aaron the priest.

38:22And Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that Jehovah had commanded Moses;

38:23and with him Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver and artificer, and an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and in byssus.

38:24All the gold that it took for the work in all the work of the sanctuary -- the gold of the wave-offering, was twenty-nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.

38:25And the silver of them that were numbered of the assembly was a hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and seventy-five shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary:

38:26a bekah the head -- half a shekel, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that passed the numbering from twenty years old and upward, of the six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty.

38:27And there were a hundred talents of silver for casting the bases of the sanctuary, and the bases of the veil; a hundred bases of a hundred talents, a talent for a base.

38:28And of the thousand seven hundred and seventy-five shekels he made the hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their capitals, and fastened them with rods.

38:29And the copper of the wave-offering was seventy talents, and two thousand four hundred shekels.

38:30And he made with it the bases for the entrance of the tent of meeting, and the copper altar, and the copper grating for it, and all the utensils of the altar.

38:31And the bases of the court round about, and the bases of the gate of the court, and all the pegs of the tabernacle, and all the pegs of the court round about.

39:1And of the blue and purple and scarlet they made garments of service, for service in the sanctuary, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:2And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined byssus.

39:3And they beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it artistically into the blue, and into the purple, and into the scarlet, and into the byssus.

39:4They made shoulder-pieces for it, joining it: at its two ends was it joined together.

39:5And the girdle of his ephod, which was on it, was of the same, according to its work, of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined byssus; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:6And they wrought the onyx stones mounted in enclosures of gold, engraved with the engravings of a seal, according to the names of the sons of Israel.

39:7And he put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, as stones of memorial for the children of Israel; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:8And he made the breastplate of artistic work, like the work of the ephod, of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined byssus.

39:9It was square; double did they make the breastplate, a span the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, doubled.

39:10And they set in it four rows of stones: one row, a sardoin, a topaz, and an emerald -- the first row;

39:11and the second row, a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a diamond;

39:12and the third row, an opal, an agate, and an amethyst;

39:13and the fourth row, a chrysolite, an onyx, and a jasper; mounted in enclosures of gold in their settings.

39:14And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, engraved as a seal, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes.

39:15And they made on the breastplate chains of laced work of wreathen work, of pure gold.

39:16And they made two settings of gold, and two gold rings, and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.

39:17And they put the two wreathen cords of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate;

39:18and the two ends of the two wreathen cords they fastened to the two settings, and put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, on the front thereof.

39:19And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, on the border thereof, which faceth the ephod inwards.

39:20And they made two rings of gold, and put them upon the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, to the front thereof, just by the coupling thereof, above the girdle of the ephod.

39:21And they bound the breastplate with its rings to the rings of the ephod with lace of blue, that it might be above the girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:22And he made the cloak of the ephod of woven work, all of blue;

39:23and the opening of the cloak in its middle, as the opening of a coat of mail; a binding was round about the opening, that it should not rend.

39:24And they made on the skirts of the cloak pomegranates of blue and purple and scarlet, twined.

39:25And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates, in the skirts of the cloak, round about, between the pomegranates:

39:26a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, in the skirts of the cloak round about, for service; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:27And they made the vests of byssus of woven work, for Aaron, and for his sons;

39:28and the turban of byssus; and the ornamental caps, of byssus; and the linen trousers, of twined byssus;

39:29and the girdle, of twined byssus, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, of embroidery; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:30And they made the thin plate, the holy diadem, of pure gold, and wrote on it with the writing of the engravings of a seal, Holiness to Jehovah!

39:31And they fastened to it a lace of blue, to fasten it on the turban above; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

39:32And all the labour of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was ended; and the children of Israel had done it according to all that Jehovah had commanded Moses -- so had they done it.

39:33And they brought the tabernacle to Moses -- the tent, and all its utensils, its clasps, its boards, its bars, and its pillars, and its bases;

39:34and the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the veil of separation;

39:35the ark of the testimony, and its staves, and the mercy-seat;

39:36the table, all its utensils, and the shewbread;

39:37the pure candlestick, its lamps, the lamps set in order, and all its utensils, and the oil for the light;

39:38and the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the incense of fragrant drugs; and the curtain for the entrance of the tent;

39:39the copper altar, and the copper grating that was for it, its staves and all its utensils; the laver and its stand;

39:40the hangings of the court, its pillars, and its bases; and the curtain for the gate of the court, its cords, and its pegs; and all the vessel's of service of the tabernacle, for the tent of meeting;

39:41the garments of service, for service in the sanctuary; the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to serve as priests.

39:42According to all that Jehovah had commanded Moses, so had the children of Israel done all the labour.

39:43And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it as Jehovah had commanded -- so had they done it; and Moses blessed them.

40:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

40:2On the day of the first month, on the first of the month, shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.

40:3And thou shalt put in it the ark of the testimony, and shalt cover the ark with the veil.

40:4And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it. And thou shalt bring in the candlestick and light its lamps.

40:5And thou shalt set the golden altar for the incense before the ark of the testimony; and hang up the curtain of the entrance to the tabernacle.

40:6And thou shalt set the altar of burnt-offering before the entrance of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting.

40:7And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and shalt put water in it.

40:8And thou shalt fix the court round about, and hang up the curtain at the gate of the court.

40:9And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is in it, and shalt hallow it, and all its utensils; and it shall be holy.

40:10And thou shalt anoint the altar of burnt-offering, and all its utensils; and thou shalt hallow the altar, and the altar shall be most holy.

40:11And thou shalt anoint the laver and its stand, and hallow it.

40:12And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons near, at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and bathe them with water.

40:13And thou shalt clothe Aaron with the holy garments, and anoint him, and hallow him, that he may serve me as priest.

40:14And thou shalt bring his sons near, and clothe them with vests.

40:15And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may serve me as priests. And their anointing shall be to them an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

40:16And Moses did so: as Jehovah had commanded him, so did he.

40:17And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first of the month, that the tabernacle was set up.

40:18And Moses set up the tabernacle, and put in its bases, and fixed its boards, and put in its bars, and set up its pillars.

40:19And he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above over it; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:20And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and put the staves in the ark, and put the mercy-seat above on the ark.

40:21And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and hung up the veil of separation, and covered the ark of the testimony; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:22And he put the table in the tent of meeting, on the side of the tabernacle northward, outside the veil,

40:23and arranged the bread in order upon it before Jehovah; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:24And he put the candlestick in the tent of meeting, opposite to the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

40:25And he lighted the lamps before Jehovah; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:26And he put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil.

40:27And he burnt on it fragrant incense; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:28And he hung up the curtain of the entrance to the tabernacle.

40:29And he put the altar of burnt-offering at the entrance to the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered on it the burnt-offering and the oblation; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:30And he set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and put water in it for washing.

40:31And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet out of it:

40:32when they went into the tent of meeting, and when they drew near to the altar, they washed; as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

40:33And he set up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and hung up the curtain of the gate of the court. And so Moses finished the work.

40:34And the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of Jehovah filled the tabernacle.

40:35And Moses could not enter into the tent of meeting, for the cloud abode on it, and the glory of Jehovah filled the tabernacle.

40:36And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel journeyed in all their journeys.

40:37And if the cloud were not taken up, then they did not journey until the day that it was taken up.

40:38For the cloud of Jehovah was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was in it by night, before the eyes of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
