21 1This is the number of the things for the 2tabernacle, the 2tabernacle of the testimony, as they were 3numbered according to the 4command of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

22 Now aBezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the Lord had commanded Moses.

23 With him was aOholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver and a skillful workman and a 1weaver in 2blue and in purple and in scarlet material, and fine linen.

24 All the gold that was used for the work, in all the work of the sanctuary, even the gold of the wave offering, was 29 talents and 730 shekels, according to athe shekel of the sanctuary.

25 aThe silver of those of the congregation who were 1numbered was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary;

26 aa beka a head (that is, half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary), for each one who passed over to those who were 1numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for b603,550 men.

27 The hundred talents of silver were for casting the 1sockets of the sanctuary and the 1sockets of the veil; one hundred 1sockets for the hundred talents, a talent for a 1socket.

28 Of the 1,775 shekels, he made hooks for the pillars and overlaid their tops and made 1bands for them.

29 The bronze of the wave offering was 70 talents and 2,400 shekels.

31 and the 1sockets of the court all around and the 1sockets of the gate of the court, and all the pegs of the 2tabernacle and all the pegs of the court all around.
