King James 2000
1And Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:
2And he overlaid it with pure gold inside and out, and made a molding of gold for it round about.
3And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of it; even two rings upon the one side of it, and two rings upon the other side of it.
4And he made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold.
5And he put the poles into the rings by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.
6And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and one cubit and a half the breadth of it.
7And he made two cherubim of gold, hammered out of one piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;
8One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the cherubim on the two ends of it.
9And the cherubim spread out their wings above, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another; even toward the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim.
10And he made the table of acacia wood: two cubits was the length of it, and a cubit the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:
11And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made for it a molding of gold round about.
12Also he made for it a border of a handbreadth round about; and made a molding of gold for the border of it round about.
13And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings upon the four corners that were in the four legs of it.
14Close to the border were the rings, the places for the poles to bear the table.
15And he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.
16And he made the utensils which were upon the table, its dishes, and its spoons, and its bowls, and its covers for pouring, of pure gold.
17And he made the lampstand of pure gold: of hammered work made he the lampstand; its shaft, and its branch, its bowls, its knobs, and its flowers, were of the one same piece:
18And six branches going out of the sides of it; three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side:
19Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a knob and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds in another branch, a knob and a flower: so also the six branches coming out of the lampstand.
20And in the lampstand were four bowls made like almonds, its knobs, and its flowers:
21And a knob under the first two branches of the one same piece, and a knob under the second two branches of the one same piece, and a knob under the third two branches of the one same piece, according to the six branches coming out of it.
22Their knobs and their branches were of the same piece: all of it was one hammered work of pure gold.
23And he made its seven lamps, and its wick trimmers, and their trays, of pure gold.
24Of a talent of pure gold he made it, and all its utensils.
The Altar of Incense
25And he made the incense altar of acacia wood: the length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the horns of it were of one piece with it.
26And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and the sides of it round about, and the horns of it: also he made for it a molding of gold round about.
27And he made two rings of gold for it under its molding, by the two corners of it, upon the two sides of it, to be places for the poles to bear it.
28And he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold.
29And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the perfumer.
