10 kAnd they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, lwithin and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a mcrown of gold round about. 12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four ncorners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it. 13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. 14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them. 15 oThe staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it. 16 And thou shalt put into the ark pthe testimony which I shall give thee. 17 And thou shalt make qa mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. 18 And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of rbeaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. 19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even ||of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. 20 And sthe cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. 21 tAnd thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and uin the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. 22 And xthere I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from ybetween the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
23 zThou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 24 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a acrown of gold round about. 25 And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden acrown to the border thereof round about. 26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof. 27 Over against the border shall the rings be for bplaces of the staves to bear the table. 28 And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them. 29 And thou shalt make cthe dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, ||to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them. 30 And thou shalt set upon the table dshewbread before me alway.
