The Materials of the Construction
38:21 This is the inventory14 of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony, which was counted15 by the order16 of Moses, being the work17 of the Levites under the direction18 of Ithamar, son of Aaron the priest. 38:22 Now Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made everything that the Lord had commanded Moses; 38:23 and with him was Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an artisan, a designer, and an embroiderer in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and fine linen.
38:24 All the gold that was used for the work, in all the work of the sanctuary19 (namely,20 the gold of the wave offering) was twenty-nine talents and 730 shekels,21 according to the sanctuary shekel.
38:25 The silver of those who were numbered of the community was one hundred talents and 1,775 shekels,22 according to the sanctuary shekel, 38:26 one beka per person, that is, a half shekel,23 according to the sanctuary shekel, for everyone who crossed over to those numbered, from twenty years old or older,24 603,550 in all.25 38:27 The one hundred talents of silver were used for casting the bases of the sanctuary and the bases of the special curtain—one hundred bases for one hundred talents, one talent per base. 38:28 From the remaining 1,775 shekels26 he made hooks for the posts, overlaid their tops, and made bands for them.
38:29 The bronze of the wave offering was seventy talents and 2,400 shekels.27 38:30 With it he made the bases for the door of the tent of meeting, the bronze altar, the bronze grating for it, and all the utensils of the altar, 38:31 the bases for the courtyard all around, the bases for the gate of the courtyard, all the tent pegs of the tabernacle, and all the tent pegs of the courtyard all around.28
