Beseleel maketh the ark: the propitiatory, and cherubims, the table, the candlestick, the lamps, and the altar of incense, and compoundeth the incense.

[1] And Beseleel made also the ark of setim wood: it was two cubits and a half in length, and a cubit and a half in breadth, and the height was of one cubit and a half: and he overlaid it with the purest gold within and without. [2] And he made to it a crown of gold round about, [3] Casting four rings of gold at the four corners thereof: two rings in one side, and two in the other. [4] And he made bars of setim wood, which he overlaid with gold, [5] And he put them into the rings that were at the sides of the ark to carry it.

[6] He made also the propitiatory, that is, the oracle, of the purest gold, two cubits and a half in length, and a cubit and a half in breadth. [7] Two cherubims also of beaten gold, which he set on the two sides of the propitiatory: [8] One cherub in the top of one side, and the other cherub in the top of the other side: two cherubims at the two ends of the propitiatory, [9] Spreading their wings, and covering the propitiatory, and looking one towards the other, and towards it. [10] He made also the table of setim wood, in length two cubits, and in breadth one cubit, and in height it was a cubit and a half.

[11] And he overlaid it with the finest gold, and he made to it a golden ledge round about. [12] And to the ledge itself he made a polished crown of gold, of four fingers' breadth, and upon the same another golden crown. [13] And he cast four rings of gold, which he put in the four corners at each foot of the table, [14] Over against the crown: and he put the bars into them, that the table might be carried. [15] And the bars also themselves he made of setim wood, and overlaid them with gold,

[16] And the vessels for the divers uses of the table, dishes, bowls, and cups, and censers of pure gold, wherein the libations are to be offered. [17] He made also the candlestick of beaten work of the finest gold. From the shaft whereof its branches, its cups, and bowls, and lilies came out: [18] Six on the two sides: three branches on one side, and three on the other. [19] Three cups in manner of a nut on each branch, and bowls withal and lilies; and three cups of the fashion of a nut in another branch, and bowls withal and lilies. The work of the six branches that went out from the shaft of the candlestick was equal. [20] And in the shaft itself were four cups after the manner of a nut, and bowls withal at every one, and lilies:

[21] And bowls under two branches in three places, which together make six branches going out from one shaft. [22] So both the bowls, and the branches were of the same, all beaten work of the purest gold. [23] He made also the seven lamps with their snuffers, and the vessels where the snuffings were to be put out, of the purest gold. [24] The candlestick with all the vessels thereof weighed a talent of gold. [25] He made also the altar of incense of setim wood, being a cubit on every side foursquare, and in height two cubits: from the corners of which went out horns.

[26] And he overlaid it with the purest gold, with its grate and the sides, and the horns. [27] And he made to it a crown of gold round about, and two golden rings under the crown at each side, that the bars might be put into them, and the altar be carried. [28] And the bars themselves he made also of setim wood, and overlaid them with plates of gold. [29] He compounded also the oil for the ointment of sanctification, and incense of the purest spices, according to the work of a perfumer.
