Constructing the Ark
1And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim 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 hight of it:
2And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to 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 staffs of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.
5And he put the staffs 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, beaten out of one piece he made 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 on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy-seat, with their faces one to another; even towards the mercy-seat were the faces of the cherubim.
The Table of Showbread
(Exodus 25:23-30; Leviticus 24:5-9)
10And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was its length, and a cubit its breadth, and a cubit and a half its hight:
11And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made to it a crown of gold round about.
12Also he made to it a border of a hand-breadth round about; and made a crown of gold for its border round about.
13And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings upon the four corners that were in its four feet.
14Over against the border were the rings, the places for the staffs, to bear the table.

16And he made the vessels which were upon the table, its dishes, and its spoons, and its bowls, and its covers to cover with, of pure gold.
17And he made the candlestick of pure gold; of beaten work he made the candlestick; its shaft, and its branch, its bowls, its knobs, and its flowers were of the same:
18And six branches proceeding from its sides; three branches of the candlestick from the one side of it, and three branches of the candlestick from the other side of it.
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 throughout the six branches proceeding from the candlestick.
20And in the candlestick were four bowls made like almonds, its knobs, and its flowers:
21And a knob under two branches of the same, and a knob under two branches of the same, and a knob under two branches of the same, according to the six branches proceeding from it.
22Their knobs and their branches were of the same: all of it was one beaten work of pure gold.

26And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and its sides round about, and its horns: also he made to it a crown of gold round about.
